I just lost my husband recently. He was coming home from work and a tractor trailer ran a red light. We'd only been married two years. Now, I just found out I'm pregnant. As if this wasn't enough, we never had DS's birthmom's rights revoked like we were planning to do later this year. She is now contesting for custody of him after not seeing him for six years. He's seven years old. He doesn't even know who she is. The courts have placed him with his grandparents until it is decided what is best for him since my in-laws have evidence that she was was abusive when she was around and because she has the issue of abandonment against her. Neither of us are allowed to see him outside of court until a decision is made and it kills me not to have him in the next room at night, especially when I'm all alone in my own bed. I've lost my husband and my son and now I'll have to raise this baby alone. I'm so scared and whenever I think about it my chest hurts so bad. I can't stop crying, I have no appetite, and I have chest pains all the time. This is so hard and I feel so alone. I lost my more than a lover. I lost my best friend, my confidante, my support. He was my shoulder to cry on. What can I do now when that shoulder is gone? I don't even have my son to hug and to distract me. We should be getting through this together but he's been taken from me instead. I can't do this on my own. I'm just not strong enough. How do I explain to my child why her daddy and brother aren't here? My whole world has been ripped out from under me and I'm drowning. I don't know what to do.Answer Question

why aren't you allowed to see him? that doesn't make since you didn't abandon him. is that what the grand parents requested? I agree you need counseling as well as legal counseling since you've been there in that child's life and raised him. I'm sorry for your loss. but you need to take care of yourself I realize it's hard but you have a baby growing inside of you !!!! the most precious gift that your Husband could have give you and you need to take care of your baby.
