Hi,

New to this but I feel your pain.  I’m 16 weeks pregnant. My husband and I only married in August. He is a children’s nurse, and step dad to my little girl with whom he got on well.

As soon as he realised I was pregnant he acted strange (planned baby).  He started lying about where he was after work.  He distanced himself from me and made excuses for not spending time with me. He eventually left me and said he didn’t think we get on well enough to have a child – we were only just married!!! Also very happy from my point of view.  I begged him not to give up on us and seek counselling etc.  He knows I would support him through anything. I help people for a living.

Anyway, I finally found out last week he has been sleeping with his colleague. He shows absolutely no remorse whatsover. It’s so hurtful how someone you thought you knew could act so cruel and cold.

Its sad to see that there are others going through this  but we can do this i’m sure and it will make us stronger I hope.  I’m planning on talking to my midwife tomorow to see what support is available.

Best of luck
