Im 24, 5 foot even, got married on 7/3/10, and found out on 6/12/11 we were expecting our 1st child. On 7/25/11 we lost the baby at 11weeks.
Sadly, after only 16 short months of being married, we were divorced. He cared more about hanging out with friends and what was going on in their lives than the problems in our marriage. I was tired of being second to a phone and computer. So, in Nov of 2011, I left.
May 1st, 2012 my divorce was final. *HAPPY DANCE!!*
I found out on Feb 6th, I am pregnant again. I know I will not be raising this child with it's father, as he(not my ex husband) passed away just a few short weeks after we started dating. It hurts than my child with not have it's father, but that does not mean it will not be loved. The father was somebody I had known for many years and who I was comfortable with. We only had sex once, and I was very intent on using protection, which we did. However, we all know that protection is not 100%.
I know this is going to be a tough road for me, but with the support from family and friends, I know I will make it, and that this child will be surrounded by lots of love.

Hey hun I saw you post on a forum and saw that you said that you are in it alone. I know exactly what you mean. I am in it alone too, which isn't what anybody wants. If you wanna talk maybe we can relate. I am only 2 weeks ahead of you, I think.
