I am almost 27 years old. Divorced with a 15 month old. Sharing custody with ex-husband, who is consistent with CS and visitation (although in his personal life is incredibly immature and has anger issues).
I work two jobs (both part-time...20 hrs each....both paying good money per hour). I have health insurance, my own place, and pay all my own bills. I have been casually dating (I do not want to go anywhere near a serious relationship right now).
Here's the scary thing: I could possibly be pregnant. I have taken two negative tests, but missing AF. This was from a one-time thing during which we used protection 75% of the time.
I would not be worried about dealing with the father or how to pay bills or anything. I have experience dealing with the worst XDH ever....so this one would def not be as bad as him. I have room for another in my home, so I wouldn't have to move or anything. I have childcare.
The thing I'm worried about is society. Before, I got divorced, so my child was born within marriage. I am worried about what society thinks of mothers having children outside of wedlock. Church people and friends of my parents would all know I'm doing naughty things....lol.
So, any unwed moms out there can give me advice about how you deal with societal perceptions?
