Pregnancy blues

Hi I'm fairly new to the forum and I really need some advice. I am 5 and a half months pregnant and feel so alone. The main reason is my P who keeps telling me that I'm rubbish at everything and I'm not fit to be a mum, which is really hurting me. He keeps nitpicking at me and saying that he can't cope. I just don't know what to do? I'm crying all the time and what should be a happy time is turning out really stressful. To top it of I have a heart condition so this pregnancy needs to be monitored very carefully this is fine but I've been told that I need to rest alot as the strain of the pregnancy on my heart is greater then a normal person's. This also makes me feel totally useless as well as the that I have moved to a new town far from my family and friends. I feel I'm going mad anyone else feels this way in particular with P giving me a lot of stress?

It sounds like you're having a horrible time, please mention how you are feeling to your mw as prenatal depression really does exist.
Your partner sounds very unsupportive, has he always been this way? can you talk to any close friends or family about this? xxxx

If your partner were mine, he would be getting a slap around the face right about now. Sorry to say, but his lack of support, especially with your high risk pregnancy, is disgusting and he ought to be ashamed of himself. I would actually leave him.

There's nothing worse than feeling isolated in pregnancy. I live away from my family and it's awful enough. Having him making you feel bad must be horrific. YOU are carrying/creating a life. How dare he say that you'd be an unfit mother when you're the one growing your child.

Yeah. I'd really talk to someone. You don't deserve stress.
