Can I do this alone or am I crazy?

Am I mad for thinking I can do this on my own? I am really starting to doubt my ability to do this. By this I mean have a baby and raise it on my own. Lol bit late to ask now really as I am going in for an induction Wednesday the 18th of Oct. I have had no money coming in for 6 weeks due to waiting on Centerlink and I am drowning in bills and I won't have a lot of support from family. The father is not remotely interested and went so far as to tell me to get rid of it. Now I know I am going to have to fight tooth and nail for child support, I have been really sick the whole pregnancy (think throwing up 3 times a day minimum and maximum sleep of about 4 hrs a night at most) and I am just not sure how much more I can do this. As the induction date gets closer I just get more terrified. Help!!

You can do this. This is the hardest part. Single mum, to now 23 year old. Been on my own since day one.

The fact your still here and so is baby is huge good on you ! If you ever felt alone well believe me when your little bundle is in your arms you will not ever be alone again ! Life is too short ! Try not worry about centerlink go in with baby when you can call the bill.company's explain ya need a few extra weeks . Go to salvos for some help but most importantly try block out the world and enjoy your baby you can live off minimal with centerline repayments for now screw him what kinda of a dad does that!!!
Most of us are alone even with fathers who are there just giving money and nothing else alone is good alone means you are strong and your baby will adore you no matter what good luck xxx you got this x

Please go and speak to centrelink social worker and they can make referrals to services that can help and speak to your midwife aswell. Get social worker to recommend payments to be fasttracked due to hardship xx

You will kick ass hun!

I know it's overwhelming and scary now but once the financial side of things get sorted that will be one big weight off your shoulders.
