Anyone else in this boat? I never thought in a million years that I would be in this situation. I am so scared/sad. I just got out of a 3year long, CrAzY, Unhealthy, relationship with the man "I thought" I couldnt live without...1 week after I finally gained enough curage to leave him and get out of the mess, I found out I was pregnant. I have contemplated time and time again, what to do? There is no fixing it, and as others have told me "a baby" wont REPAIR anything! I guess im just asking if Im the only one...or maybe pushing to hear from a complete stranger that its going to indeed be ok. I have 2 beautiful children already from a previous marriage, but Im just so so scared to do this one all alone. #sad
((hugs)) I can imagine how scary the whole situation is. You and your friends are right--the baby isn't going to change the way he treats you, and it's better to be done with it before he has major influence on the child as well. You will make it through this pregnancy without him, and find a way to raise your children on your own. Do you have access to friends or family?
Do you have health insurance? Mine covers counseling/therapy visits. I'm not thrilled at the idea of being pregnant right now, so I've been going to see a therapist to talk through my fears and frustrations, and it's a big help. Might be worth looking into?

5 weeks early and absolutely perfect
Hey well I have to say I have been lurking around the JM April board for a little bit and I have to tell u that I am a single mom if two beautiful children and soon to be three in April so I understand where you feel scared... My family thinks I need to abort this baby bc it's going to be an inconvience to my other kids....the thing is I cannot just kill my child bc it's an inconvience to life right now... Things happen for a reason and I'm not married but I'm making my own family and this third baby may bring something to the table and maybe just purhaps teach me a few things and you neer know what a new life can teach u!!! So just to say I've been there and still am in the same place you are now!!!!!
Everything is set into a plan for a reason, i think that this plan was for your baby to be born into a house oberwhelmed with love and positivity, and trust me from experience with unhealthy relashionships... your baby would have been born into hostility, chaos, and negativity if it was really an unhealthy relashionship. The best thing is for you to be strong for not just your baby but for yourself, now you can not stress about a troubled relashionship and turn that into a million happy moments and thought for your kids and your baby! We are stroger then we think sometimes and i believe youll be a much better mommy with this in your past good luck and stay positive! <3
Everything happens for a reason and this baby is coming for a reason.
I was single when I got pregnant with my DD Jessie I was single and no plans on being pregnant. I had broke up with her dad because it was not a great relationship. Two months after we broke up I found d out I was almost 4 months pregnant. I was devastated because I was doing good to take care of myself now I was adding a baby in the mix I had no idea how I was going to make it.
As time went on I know I had her for a reason she had made me who I am and made my life so much better. I can't imagine not having her in my life no matter how hard it seems it will get better.
Thanks Jaidynsmum for my new siggy
I'm in the same place as you.....Except that I'm back in with my parents and don't have a job and started going back to college.
I was with my ex for 7 years, but he turned into a gnarly drug addict...
I'm freaking out trying to figure out what to do. My parents will defiantly NOT be supportive. And there is noooooooo way I would ever tell my ex...
