Hi everyone! I am having a very hard pregnancy and I am reaching out for support.  I couldn't be more excited about my baby girl however my living situation leaves much to be desired.  I live with the father but he is not dealing with the changes and creating a very unhealthy living environment.  I am ill and have been off of work since November looking at unemployment and do not have a support group to speak of.  I am here hoping to meet moms in all situations that are interested in support and advice.  Thank you all for reading this post, I look forward to meeting you all!

Karen

i feel you. im pretty much in the same situation it seems. im only 17 weeks but i fear by the end itll just be me. just remember sometimes its better to be alone and be a kick ass momma than to end up being subpar because of the situation you are in.. i worry about that.. that my child will suffer because i didnt do enough or wasnt strong enough to do what was best. 

it breaks my heart because this is my miracle baby. i prayed for a long time for him/her and thus far my whole pregnancy has been full of tears, stress, and a constantly broken heart. this may be my only child so i especially want to enjoy every ache and pain of pregnancy. i ant to spoil them with what i can but SO refuses to even consent to a new crib. tge one we have is a broken hand me down. 

i could go on all day.. but jus know you are not alone.

Welcome to the group and congrats! I am really sorry that it isn't going well. Do you feel like he could become a danger to you or the baby?

 welcome Karen and congrats!! no one said it would be easy, they just said it would be worth it. I know that doesn't help much now, but if you want this, you can do this.

I don't think he is a physical danger, just major emotional damage being done. His hostility is coming out verbally


Quoting Mrs.Andrews:
