    I can relate. I've gotten up in the middle of the night to clean the house. I set my alarm clock on weekends so I have an hour before my LO gets up and all I can tell you is that I work full time and that's my quiet time. There is a support group in London for single moms. They meet on the first Monday of every month I believe. I'm going on the 5th to check it out as I haven't gone yet They are called SWIM (single women in motherhood) They meet at St.Joes Here's the link

    It does get easier. You will find you get used to a little mess, caos and lack of sleep.
    also when someone offers to help out take the help. I know it makes you feel guilty but you need to take time for yourself so that you don't go crazy on your LO's. If there is anythin I can do to help let me know.

    Your not alone, we all feel like this from time to time. I'm a single mommy have basically been since DS #1 was born 2yrs ago and became completly alone when I found out my ex cheated for the last time in June 2006 and I was 10weeks pregnant. I now have my DS#2 home and he is 7days old.

    Being a single mommy is the hardest thing you'll ever have to do and like you I don't have family to help me out. I have "quiet time" from 1-2 or so and I lay on the couch with the newborn and my 2yr son lays on the floor with a couple toys and watches TV. This way I get some time to recharge and he gets some time to settle.

    I feel like you that I should be doing something and I also don't go to bed till about 11-12 depending and up through out the night for feedings and up at 7 or so to start the day. I keep telling myself it has to get easier.

    As for the resentment of the EX still going through that but I keep reminding myself that when my boys get older they'll no who was there for them throughout their lives. I get all the rewards, all the hugs, all the kisses and all the I love yous not him and that makes up for all the pain I feel.

    If you ever need anyone to talk to just PM me. Remember your not alone and it has to get better

    Sara, you have beautiful kids, I have friends that have tried to get pregnant for years, so when I think about their pain I am more thankful about the entire job I have and some temper tantrums.
    My best friend grow up without dad and she is one of the smartest and devoted person to her mom, she always told me I met when I was a girl the men that my mom said is my dad but I never cared about him.

    I can just tell you I will pray for you and your girls.
    Take care
