Welcome to the forum. My experience with pregnancy, children etc is no matter what you do you will always experience some sort of negative comment from some 'well meaning' person. DH and I have used IVF and had people tell us that we shouldn't have because it was god's way of telling us we were not meant to have children!
My Mum (who turns 55 this year) has a best friend who in her 20s decided to have her baby the same way you did. She always knew she didn't want to marry or have a partner. Can you imagine what people said to her 25 years ago! Well I can assure everyone that she has a very close relationship with her daughter and her daughter is smart, level headed and beautiful.
I wish you all the best.
i think its sad that some woman feel that to have a child they MUST have a partner
congratulations to you on having to wonderful daughters!!!

Welcome to H*ggies!!
I am sure your daughters have the best mum that they could ask for and as for people that choose to tell you that youve done the wrong thing.....not really valuable opinions!!!
You go girl!!
My son doesnt suffer in any way with me on my own and he has everything he could ever possibly want or need!
I desperately want another baby and i know I will not care what people think if and when I choose to go that way!
Good on you!

I think you deserve a medal!!!!
If you give your girls love and they are happy then that is what any mother could want for their child regardless of their marital status.
When i was in hospital following the birth of my son, I was looked down upon because I wasn't married, now over 12 months on, my son is still a healthy, happy little fella, and now when I see them people, I make a point of speaking to them and seeing how their (usually screaming) kids are doing.
In my opinion, I don't think that it matters if you are married, single, raising your kids on your own or have the stereotypical family, as long as you can go to sleep every night knowing that you have done the best you possibly can for your kids and yourself, don't worry what anyone else says.
At the end of the day, if some people have nothing better to do than to find faults with your life, to make their own look better, then they aren't the type of people worth knowing!!
I'm sure your girls are wonderful, and that can only be attributed to everything you have done for them.
You should be proud.
