    Aloumart77-Welcome! Are you expecting or do you already have kids? Tell us more about yourself!

  • Thank you and I'm expecting my first little one.  I'm 8 weeks and the father is only going to be there monetarily.  He wants to just be "friends" he says.  Of course I gave him the boot and said the heck with that (coward).  I got this and I'm doing fine. I'm 29 years old and I've always been pretty independent and even though this was not planned I am for sure bucking up and taking full responsibility and embracing this child.  I have a huge support group and I'm so very thankful! I just pray everything goes well and my baby is healthy!  I'm learning so much by reading and seeing how the baby is growing.  I really am glad I found this website through my doctor. 

  • Aloumart77-Sounds like you have handled this new challenge really well! I admire your sense of self worth and confidence. :-) You are doing such a great job preparing for your little one and this site is great for asking all kinds of questions and getting advice. Glad you found us!!
