Need support

I don't really know where to start.
I just feel as though I need some support right now. My boyfriend has just left, leaving me feeling desperate, hurt and lonely. I'm almost 9 weeks pregnant and already feel emotional as it is.
The fact that he doesn't seem to care is destroying me, it's 13.26 and I'm not a drinker but have just had to open a bottle of wine.

You'll get through it, really.

Do you have some family near by ?

Please don't drink too much wine ( if any )

My parents live in the Middle East, and the rest of my family are in London, I live out in the country.
I just feel so let down. I was already a single parent to my 5 year old daughter, and felt as though things were coming together. She had started to get such a good bond with him.
I think things are still just so raw and that I'm still in shock.

That's totally understandable. You will be in shock. But it will ease, eventually it will get better. Think of the child you carry, how much love there is there. Try and think of positive things.. don't drain the wine.

I can never understand the thinking of men who walk out on pregnant women.

You have my sympathies. Others will be along shortly I'm sure.

Thank you SirGinster

I really feel for you. I cannot understand these men, some just don't seem to have a clue how hard pregnancy and giving birth is!!!!

There is another thread:

The poster is in the same situation as you, and has been given some good advice.

Please just focus on your baby. Wine will not solve the problem, and will just make you feel shit. Trust me, I talk from experience. Try to stay as calm as possible (easier said than done I know, but its very important), stress is not good for you or the baby right now.

I wish you all the best

Hi alapeg Sorry to hear you're another pregnant and single parent to be. There are a few of us here. Mine walked out on me when I was 13w and I'm now 36.. I swear the hardest thing was trying to keep calm and not go off on one for fear of harming the baby.

Have you got any friends near you? Can you go and stay with your family in London for a few weeks or so just to get your head around what you want to do? How close are you to your parents?

Sorry I know 101 questions but trust me being on your own and drinking to ease the pain is only going to make things 100x worse. You need to have a great big cry and get it out. Be warned though, this cry could go on for weeks until you see for yourself what a tosspot he is.
