Hi all, this may be a long post, so thank you if you decide to read.
This is my first pregnancy, I'm currently 6 weeks with all the symptoms going.
I was only with my partner for a couple of months before we decided together that we wanted to try for a baby.. crazy, I know, please no judgement, it was right for us at the time. We weren't using contraception, planned around my ovulation, and I was taking medication to help my PCOS. We were very excited and super giddy at the idea of actually doing this parenting thing together.
However, unfortunately, his mental health took a decline after he broke his ankle and we've separated as it wasn't healthy for either of us. He obviously has other things going on that he isn't opening up to me about.
Since we broke up I've found out I'm pregnant and upon telling him, he decided he no longer wants this and requested I have an abortion. I told him that this baby was planned and I'm going to keep it. He's told me he wants nothing to do with it and has blocked and deleted me on everything. He also told me I'm being selfish for keeping it because we aren't together anymore even though we were when the baby was conceived. This has put such an emotional strain on me and I'm struggling to cope with the impact his carelessness and selfishness has had.
I know this situation may be unique, but I'm wondering if anyone else has been/is in a similar situation, and what kind of support are you recieving, is this worth mentioning to the midwife when I see them?
Thank you for reading,
Sincerely, a freaking out single mama to be xx
