Moving in together...

Me and my X are talking about moving in together. I am 7 months pregnant with DS. He wants to work things out and suggested we move in together so our son has his family together. Currently I am living with my mom. She's single and so am I. We make things work. We get along together and she's excited to have her grandson living with her so she can be close to him. I'm just not sure what to do...My mom HATES my X and I know she won't be around if I choose to move in with my X. However I'm also not sure if moving in with my X would be the best decision....What do you guys think?


**Me and my X split because things happened VERY fast we had been seeing each other a month and I got pregnant. He cheated and granted he admitted it but it still hurt and I chose to leave because I couldn't handle that. We have kept in contact and he is actively involved in the pregnancy**

I would stay at your moms. After baby is born you can see how the dynamics between you to are.

Stay with mom, reestablish trust, a relationship with your mom, then go from there. You don't want any animosity.

suppose things arent working out a month into moving in together?? You're better off staying with mom, and building a solid relationship first.

You sound like you are in no way ready to even have a baby

If your ex is a good person (no drugs, not abusive in any way) and If you have feelings of love or feelings that could lead to love then I would give it a try or I might worry that I would always wonder if it could have worked out. Explain to your mom that you still need her to be involved with the pregnancy and baby and need her support. Let her know that she won't be pushed aside. Hope it all works out for you.

Don't live together just because you want your baby to have a family, that's stupid. You guys can still be a "family" without living together.
if you want to work things out with your X, as I said, you don't have to live together to be in a relationship with him. You guys split once after moving too fast, why would you consider doing that again??

I suggest having a dating trial to see if you guys can work things out. If you are still with him after a year, and things are solid, than you can consider moving in. That's just my opinion.

Stay with your mom..........there is a reason he was your ex and being pregnant is not a reason to overlook that and move in together
