i am currently pregnant 19 weeks and been with my bf 2 years . I have a 8 year old who is deaf and he has been so good with her. I was with my current bf for a year untill he cheated on me and destroyed me he done so much lying that I managed to get over it and been back together a year. I aM pregnant and he was fine now he is saying he won’t ever love the baby and doesn’t want. Then one day he will say he is ok with it.
he speaks to me with little respect and always puts me down I try my hardest to make everything right I have his dinner on table wash his clothes tidy the house , run him to work and back I pay all the bills.
my family and friends hate him and tell me to get rid I don’t no what to do I love him and remember how hurt I was of him last year and just wanted him back. I’m so scared .
he doesn’t let me see my friends or tell me they don’t like me and he hates it when I tell my mum I’m crying and upset.

Sorry but he sounds like bad news. You deserve much better. Can you get in touch with your local Women’s Aid or equivalent as his behaviour is abusive – controlling and criticising you. There’s a reason why the mothers of the other two kids don’t want him in their life.14 June 2020 at 10:26 pm #40977
You absolutely are not worthless. To Your daughter you are the most important, most valuable person in the world.
It sounds like your bf is trying to undermine your confidence, & separate you from your family & friends so you have no-one to turn to. That sort of abuse sometimes starts when a woman is pregnant.
You need to get some support, the Gingerbread helpline or WomansAid. I’m sure someone knowledgable will be along shortly, to help, but hang onto your friends, don’t believe your bf, and stay safe xx14 June 2020 at 11:22 pm #40978
You sound like you’re in a similar situation to myself and so advice I cannot give as I am also stuck. I can however, offer sympathy and understanding. My days are dark and I am too, caught in a world where I love someone who treats me terribly.
logically you know you deserve better. So do I.
you deserve someone who makes you feel like the special person that you are. And I pray we both find strength to suffer the heartache necessary to release us from these bonds we have with such people.
It is toxic. It isn’t healthy. It is trauma bonding caused by emotional abuse.
I too have an active thread, and always have an open inbox should u wish to talk or support each other
I am Very low and have begun reaching out as I can’t take any more. Let’s find strength to do what is right. People like them don’t change. It’s their personalities.
