  • If he hit you you need to call the police.... there is no way to "get rid" of one until it heals..... you can try to cover it up with make up..... I hope you do the right thing

  • First off do NOT hide that black eye. It serves as a reminder to him (and the world) what a jerk he is. My x used to do that crap and I wore my black eyes so all the world could see the kind of man he is. If that doesn't work for you then try concealer and make up. It won't hide the pain of what he did though. In FL he'd be arrested for aggravated assault for hitting a pregnant woman. You should think about having him arrested. Once they start that crap they don't stop.

  • First off, he didn't sock you, he hit you in anger. When you use cutsie names for abuse, then you don't garner much sympathy.

    He hit you... CALL THE POLICE. This time he punched you in the eye, next time he could chocke you to death. Recently a pregnant lady was murdered by her boyfriend in front of her other children in my city. Do you really think it started any differernt for her?

    Please find some help and get away from him. What do you think your children are learning seeing him hit you? Even if they didn't see it, they know what is going on. They deserve better!

  • IF you had put ice on it as soon as it happened you could have prevented it from getting to bad & the using Preparation H would help with the swelling.

  • I have to agree wiht everyone else. I have been there, with an abusive ass. And it will just get worse. I didn't have kids in the mix, thank God. But do you want them subjet to this? I understand it may be hard, if the twins and the one you are pregnant with are his....but I have to say if you have all these kids, why is he just the boyfriend too? Can't go buy diapers, how hard is that? You deserve better. And I can say, when you have no support and are in a relationship like this it can and may actually make you an even more miserable and mean person than you thought you could ever be. You should have called the cops. Get this stuff documented by the police, so it's on record. In a year or so you will be glad you did. Stay strong. Ditch the dick honey.
