Absolutely it will be hard. We were not meant to raise children by ourselves. Heck, I don't even do it fully on my own as I live with my parents and they take my 6 year old for me sometimes (though I wish they'd take my infant and let me have my 6 year old at times too lol). But still, there's really nobody else to get up with the baby at night. There's nobody to make store runs when you run out of stuff. There's nobody to take the baby from you when they've been screaming for the last 3 hours. Not that I'm trying to scare you! Just being truthful. The only reason I agreed to trying for a baby this time around was because I NEVER expected my ex to walk out on me right before she was born. And now he hits ME up for money even though he makes more money than me and has less bills than I do. Let me tell you, I cannot WAIT for his child support case to get moving. If I can't get him to be a father to his child and help me take care of her, he can foot his half of her expenses.
So let me give you that one piece of advice. FILE FOR CHILD SUPPORT. Don't settle for any amount of money out of court because it could stop at any time and he would have no obligations to pay you anymore. He wanted to make this baby with you, he should pay for this baby with you. I was dumb and didn't go after my son's father for child support and he disappeared.
He has 4 kids by 3 different women and has skipped out on child support for all of them.
Anyway, enough rambling from me!
