I'm Amy, 27 currently separated from my dh of 9 years. We have 2 children right now and another coming in 5 weeks. He's always been such a great dad, I'm very nervous being a single mom. Anyways, when I found out he cheated on me back in October we separated for 2 weeks but decided to work on things and our marriage. Little did I know he was still having the affair behind my back. I found a prepaid phone on Christmas day. That Monday after my OB appointment, I packed me and the kids up and moved in with my MIL, 3 hours away. That Wednesday my sister got into a head on collision with a semi truck. My dh came down to help me with the kids and comfort me while my sister recovered. We are still separated however I wasn't able to find an OB within reasonable driving distance for twice a week appointments. So I moved back into our family home and he's staying in a motel. That is the plan until I have the baby next month then me and all 3 kids will move in with my MIL. He's agreed to not cut me off financially but I've already.opened myself a new checking account just in case he changes his mind once I leave. I applied for food stamps online and am hoping my caseworker can tell me what other steps I need to take.

I do hope there is a future with dh in it but right now I'm focusing on me and my children. Any advice is welcome. Thanks for reading.
