Advice Needed - Unexpected Pregnancy

Please be kind. I would appreciate if you have judgemental or hurtful comments to reconsider posting them x

With that being said, I'm struggling. I'm 9 weeks and 3 days pregnant. It was a huge surprise but I'm a huge believer in things happening for a reason.

I haven't known the father for very long and he's causing me more tears than happiness. I know in my heart this baby will be brought into this world regardless. What I don't know is how I would cope with being a single mum. I know it is nowhere near easy and I'm terrified.

I've been in and out of the hospital for the past few weeks with some abdominal issues and in extreme pain. This has added additional stress to what should be a beautiful celebration.

I have no family here in Australia. My family is in Canada. I have a great support system of friends, but most don't have children so I find it hard for them to understand and relate to what I'm feeling and experiencing.

I suppose I'm just looking for some advice and support moving forward. I don't want to do this alone, but I feel more and more every day this is the right choice for a healthy and happy life for myself and the baby.

I of course wouldn't limit the father seeing the child if this was my decision. I just know in my heart it's best for me to remove myself from the relationship.

Please reach out if you can. Thank you x
