I don't think I can give birth by myself! He left me! Nearly 37 weeks pregnant! Help!
My ex-boyfriend decided that he didn't want to be present for the birth of our daughter. He is incredibly angry with me because some of my colleagues from work asked me to go out for dinner earlier this week and I considered taking them up on the invite. I enjoy my colleagues, and I enjoy being fortunate enough to want to enjoy their company outside of work. We are all world language teachers (male and female). My boyfriend stated that I should spend all of my free time with him because we do not get to spend enough time anyway. I love my boyfriend immensely, but I feel like I should still be able to have my own identity and social life. Approximately one month ago he said that he would not be present at our daughter's birth if I took a graduate course. He later apologized and admitted that he made a mistake, but I feel like this situation is very similar to the first. I am angry at him, but I need him there. I want him there. It hurts me that he would use being present for such an important milestone over my head to get things to go his way. Should I simply give up hope? Will I be delivering by myself? What are your thoughts?
