Perceptions of the pregnancy experience, pregnancy intendedness, and partner status were compared in a sample of 30 women in the midtrimester. Half of the sample defined themselves as single and half as partnered. Interview data showed a full range in pregnancy intendedness and partner status, and shared areas of concern among the sample as a whole and areas of concern specific to single women. Single women's concerns clustered into four categories: decision‐making, disclosure, social support, and legal issues.
