How do i get over this lonelyness? Im pregnant and husbandless for a week.

He also has no phone for a week and he's out of town with the family. I get the loneliest and sadest at night time going to bed without him. I stay up almost all night wake up every hour plus Im 8 months pregnant. I bring in our cats in the room at night too. It doesn't seem to help. Just need some advice Im home with my mother in law.

  • Do you have a hobby? Maybe do something with your hobby to pass the time. Does he have access to the internet? Maybe keep in touch with him through FB or emails. My husband left last Sunday for a month long training. It has been the longest week this past week, so I know what you are going through. I would just use this time to do the thing that you want to do. Maybe even invite a few friends over have a a movie and pizza night.

  • Get some sleep. Seriously, this is your last chance. Once baby arrives, you will add "never sleeping a full night EVER again" to your list of guarantees, right after death and taxes.

  • A week? I can do that easy as pie. I've got a week coming up. I will stay busy. I might just try to decorate a room to see if he notices when he gets back. Or maybe not. But I have a ton of projects that need to get done, so I will have time to work on those. I do have a hard time falling asleep when he isn't here. I deal with it though. It's not that big of a deal.

  • Prepare for baby! Keep yourself occupied.
    Single moms do it all the time.
