Hello all,

First off - I'm glad to stumble upon this website, seeing others feeling the way I do is helpful in itself.

I'm 30 years old, just about 8 weeks pregnant, and am so filled with anxiety and resentment I am unable to enjoy any part of or thoughts of pregnancy at the moment (although what's to enjoy about feeling nauseous and exhausted, right? - ha!).

No apologies are needed at all, this is a safe place for you to talk about your feelings, even the negative ones. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I think you need to just give yourself some time, you will get it all worked out. I'm sure that our hormones aren't helping matters either ;) I hope that you can find a workable solution with the dad, (((HUGS))).

I am in a similar situation - I am 32 and pregnant after a 2 month relationship. It was rebound for both of us, and his rebounding took him right back to his ex! The extra sad thing is that I feel crushed that this relationship is over. I only dated him for 2 months, I barely know the guy! I think in my desperation, I imagine him as this great companion, but in truth, and maybe for you as well, once I get passed this, things will be much better without him. We need good, strong reliable men by our sides, not these imposters that we make excuses for and for some reason pretend would be perfect . I tell myself over and over, that for some reason, God has chosen to bless me with child. Why? I can't figure it out. It feels like the worst time in life right now! But these babies have a reason to be born and we are the blessed women to have them:-) I say this so easily to you, but believe me, it is a constant reminder for myself.
