Being alone in life is not easy especially if you have to attend to all household chores without help. This is even worsened when you are pregnant and your guy has decided to dump you. It could be a painful experience. You are facing motherhood without assistance at all.
This doesn’t mean you have to despair. Just because you are expecting and no one is there to help you out, you can no longer get things done. In fact, this should challenge you to do better.
Fix your place
Soon, you won’t be alone as you will have a baby. It is best to fix your house now while you still can. Prepare the nursery room. Buy the necessary items. Decorate the entire place. Baby proof the furniture, plugs and electronic devices. Instead of crying as you are going through all of these problems on your own, it is better if you stand up and get things done.
Seek for help
It should also not make you feel bad to ask for help from other people. You might be raising your child alone, but there are people who love you deeply and are willing to give a helping hand. In many ways, they can help make things easier for you.
If you can no longer do the grocery, ask for favor from someone to do it for you. Doing the prenatal checkups might also be difficult if you have a hard time walking. Find someone to drive you to your physician.
There are tasks that you can just pay someone to do the job. For instance, hire a Modbury plumber for plumbing problems. You can also hire a temporary maid to help you with the household chores. You might even start listing potential babysitters once the baby is born.
There is no shame in asking for help. In fact, those people whom you have helped in the past are more than willing to return the favor at this point.
Prepare for birthing
Don’t forget to attend your birthing classes. This should help you get through the difficult and painful process. If you are living alone in your house, find people whom you can easily call if you have to give birth. They can take you to the hospital. It is also wiser if you remember your due date and check yourself in to the hospital a day or two before that.
By then, if your water breaks and as construction begins, you won’t have a hard time anymore. You don’t have to be rushed to the hospital as you are already there.
Forget all your problems
Once your blessing has finally been born, you will start forgetting everything that you have gone through. You won’t even worry that your baby has no father. You will just focus on raising the baby and making sure that he gets the best that life has to offer.
This is a big challenge but you can do it. You are a strong and independent woman. Just believe in yourself.
