Pregnant and feeling hopeless

(3 Posts)

I'm 28 weeks pregnant with my second child and I'm having a terrible time with my husband. He's massively controlling and hates my family. We row constantly and I hate to say it but I don't want another baby with him. He's possessive over my son and is verbally aggressive with me. I just don't know what to do, I feel completely helpless. I don't want to involve my family in our rows but I need to talk to someone. I thought being pregnant and having a baby with someone was a special time but this is just a nightmare. I'm worried that all the stress will harm the baby. I ultimately don't want to get a divorce because my son is only 2 and I just couldn't bear to be away from him, but I'm feeling terrible and my husband is just vile. Only this morning he told me I was overweight and unfit, nice to hear when you're almost 7 months pregnant.

Didn't want to read and run. I really think you need to tell your family what is going on and get some outside support. He sounds abusive and you really need to consider whether you want to stay with someone who is so vile. Could you contact women's aid for support? I really think you need to get help and get out before this baby comes. Has he hit you before?

Speak to your family.
You need help and support right now.
This vile abuser is an awful role model for your 2 YO DS and it will get worse with the 2nd baby.
