I had my daughter 3 months ago and i'm in a similar situation to you - luckily my Mum and Dad have been really supportive which i'm so grateful for. I think the best advice I can give is to not be afraid to ask for and accept help, whether its second hand baby stuff or help when your baby comes.
Good luck with everything - if it seems kinda bad now it'll be worth it when you meet your gorgeous baby!

Hi I was in exactly the same position as you Toby's father left me to it and was completely unsupportive, I used to get very upset by the things he did and more often than not didn't do!
But little things kept me going having a chilled out night with a girlfriend, pampering myself with a nice long bath and talking to my bump and playing it music!
One piece of advice get the father to tell you whether or not he will b involved right from the start don't make the mistake I did of letting him flit in and out it's very frustrating they're either there or they're not thats the way I see it now!
I ended up moving back in with my parents and fell back in love with an ex boyfriend who has taken both me and Toby on which jsut goes to show life does go on!
And remember if you're doing it alone you can do things how you want them to be done no interferring mene who don't have a clue about how things work!
