Hi! I’m 18 weeks pregnant with a 2 and a half year old daughter already. My partner of 5 years just ended our relationship and I feel so lost. I have all responsibility for the house, bills, childcare, appointments etc, the only thing he does is go to work and come home to sit on his phone all night or go to sleep. Before I fell pregnant I couldn’t get a full time job because he wasn’t willing to help with childcare so financially it’s been difficult too. He’s had a traumatic childhood but I always end up taking the brunt of it and I’m so miserable. We’re still living together because I basically can’t see him be without a home and I can’t move myself and daughter atm. I feel like I’d be better just to stay with him for the sake of a home and our kids having both parents there but I feel like I’m stuck and I’ll spend the rest of my life feeling so low. I do have family which help out with childcare occasionally but they’re all busy with life and we’re not the type of family to share these kind of problems, I’ve also drifted away from all of my close friends because I’ve been so distant. I don’t know how I’m going to cope when my newborn arrives and if I’m still in this cycle!
If you have the responsibility of all bills , household and childcare you better off leaving him completely as you doing everything yourself already, if you not working you better off seeking government support even if it’s for the short term until you can get back on your feet. Don’t let him take advantage of you, I know it’s hard but your happiness is more important and you can be happy, you just need to step out your comfort zone and it will take some time but it will be worth it.
it’s not your problem if he says no home, that’s what all narcissists want you to do, feel sorry for them! Get on your feet before baby arrives, you will get more help because you pregnant.
im 24 weeks pregnant and now on my own with no family members in the country to help me and I’m much happier without him!
