Firstly I'm not a mom or a female for that matter ... but when I was in Iraq, it was probably the most lonely time of my life. I will say this... you are the only one responsible for your own happiness. You can't rely on anyone else to make you happy. that's the only way I know to help. It's all in your mindset. If the dads out of the picture then forget him. Find ways to make yourself happy .. find hobbies..check the meetup site for other women in your area. Find out how to make yourself happy First. Prepare for a scrap book make baby stuff like a lot of women do. I'm not sure how to explain it but do all the female stuff on pinterest. Sometimes the best life lessons come from the hardest tests ...you'll be fine keep your head up!!!

It sounds like you are suffering a bit of depression. See your doctor and get them to refer you to someone who can help you get back on track.
You can still do things with your family, just because you're pregnant you don't need to stop doing what you normally do. Unless it's skydiving or something like that.
You should also look into some Mother's groups in your area. meetup.com is a good site for finding groups in your area.

I don't have any friends...the only people I have are my family members, but they have their own lives. Plus, I am sure they tired of being around me because I can't do much because of pregnancy. I just really wish I had someone to care about me, and my growing baby, and check up on us... I have no one to talk to about my son. All my child's father does is curse me out and tell me to stay out of his life, which also makes me feel like crud.I just wish I had someone to care about us, to talk to, to send massive amounts of baby bump photos to... I feel like I am breaking underneath all of these emotions.
