I am pregnant for the first time. It's a baby boy and due August 8th 2011.
I was in an abusive relationship for two and a half years that I just couldnt break free from. He was controlling, abusive, angry, and cruel. It was my first serious relationship, it began my Freshman year and ended my Junior year when I finally got the nerve to cheat on him. I knew that would end it for good, even though it was 100% against my beliefs. I loved him and had intended to give him the world, but he couldn't seem to handle it. He accused me of cheating (before I actually had), he told me who I could and couldn't speak to, and where I can go, when I could leave,

Thank you both so much! It really helps to be encouraged. It's taking time, but I'm getting better.
My OB prescribed me Vistaril for the anxiety and it's really helping!

During every pregnancy, there are moments of anxiety, depression, extreme happiness and so many more emotions.
