Topic: Single Mom thinking of #2

I was lucky enough to get pregnant on my second try with donor 850R. I have a healthy 8 month baby boy and am debating on trying for number two with the same donor next year. I am a single mom who decided I had waited long enough to start my family and decided to do it on my own.

I'm wondering if anyone else is in the same boat and how much harder it is to be a single mom of two? How far apart did you space yours? I'm currently planning a 2 year age gap.

I’m a single mom of one right now as well. I am hoping to start in April or May for my second and last baby. My littl girl will be 10 months when I start again. I go back and forth on Of I want to try that early though lol.

Re: Single Mom thinking of #2

I am a single mother who used a donor for my now 9 year old daughter. I we t back and forth for years about having a second and ultimately decided not to. I’m perfectly happy with our little family but she really wishes she had a sibling which is no longer an option at 45! She’s asking about adoption now. If it’s what you really want and you can handle it financially, emotionally and every other “-ally” then go for it. I have no regrets but each person has to decide what’s best for their family.
