Good for you. I was pregnant and single due to a cheating spouse. I see it as his loss.

I'm sorry to hear that but in my case my son's father never was honest enough to tell me he was seperated but still married. I just think men are real jerks period.

About to be single. 21 weeks pregnant. Her dad is currently denying her but hope we can work it out before she is born. Don't want to be a single parent again.

Any help in getting coupons for diapers or wipes would be appreciated. I have been to the local diaper banks and received some help there.

 Sign up for coupons with the brand you use. Also coupons for diapers and wipes can be found in the newspaper inserts. And online.

 If you don't get the paper ask for it at the library, people at work, family, etc.

 Check the cost of cloth diapers and ask for free ones on the local freecycle, Facebook yardsale groups.

Google. how to make cloth diapers and wipes.

I was single durring my first pregnancy and being with someone during my second pregnancy made me greatly miss the days where I was on my own.

I was single for most of my last pregnancy. We split up about a week after I found out I was pregnant and then divorced after the baby was born. He's now 5 months old and I'm doing ok not great but ok.

It was hard to do it by myself the first time but it was harder the second time with my boyfriend. I had complications and it was a constant fight with my boyfriend because he wanted me to go on bed rest and it just wasn't possible. So the arguing just made the stress worse. I will never go through that again with an involved father. It is so much easier when I can make my own decisions regarding my pregnancy and my child.
