has anyone else felt this way before?
I am 38weeks and I am feeling so depressed and scared. I will be a single mom, and I am due in 11 days and I am so scared. I have been getting so mad so quick, and then I will start crying randomly. I have been in a very crabby mood lately, and while I was driving today, I just burst out in tears. I hate the fact I will be a single mom, but it wasn't my choice. My ex-fiancé left me after I told him I was pregnant. And I haven't heard from him since that day. I think the fact that I am so close to my due date, and it is becoming more and more real, it seems to be hitting me that I am going to be a mom. Is this a normal feeling for most moms? Please don't judge me
And that little girl is 16 now. Wonderful kid, very sweet. Only slightly dysfunctional (I kid!).
My point with sharing my story is that you CAN do this. Both of you will be okay, you really will. Your baby is going to see a strong momma who shows love and is their safe place in this world. You will even forget what it was like before you had them. Well, not totally but it will pale in comparison. :)
