Ok, I am 5 1/2 months pregnant with my first. The father and I split up about two weeks ago. He was emotionally abusive and for someone as sensitive as I am, I just couldn't handle it anymore. I tried talking to him, over and over and over. I left when he told me he's been miserable since we met and he wanted me out of his life. I guess he didn't think I had the balls enough to actually do it because when I was moving out he was crying and begging me to stay... I was living with him in a city in NY where I had no where else to go. I wasn't working but was going to school full time so my mom sent me money to come to GA to live with her and get back on my feet. He has threatened me that if I come after anything for our daughter that he will fight for custody of her. I'm afraid that if he does that he will get her because he makes more money than I do. I do not mind struggling for a little while until I can get back on my feet and take care of her by myself but my mom is insistent that I go after him for cs. I don't want to do that because I just don't want the battle of custody. I don't know what to do. She isnt going to let up about cs but I do not want to go after him for anything. My daughter and I will have a better life if he just isn't involved at all. Any advice ladies??
