Where's everyone gone again ? Are you all off having your babies?
Just noticed my ticker, 17 days to go - absolutely crapping myself! Getting a bit nervous about giving birth on my own, don't know why though. For the last 4 births DH has always just kind of sat in the room just 'being there', because I don't like being talked to or touched during labour - I just breath through the pain and everything's fine. He wants to come in this time as well with me, but I just don't want him there after everything he's put me through. Also it's really daunting, just the idea of being a single mum of 5 children under 8 years of age. My mum brought me up on her own, and as much as there's nothing wrong with being a single parent, I just always thought that I wanted to give my children as much security as possible. I'd been with DH for 15 years, we'd been married for nearly 10 when he left, we work hard to pay our mortgage and bills etc to give the children a stable upbringing - guess it just goes to show how you can't predict the future and you really never know what's going to happen next!
Oh well, enough complaining from me, I'm sure everything will be fine. Hope everyone else is well x
