Pregnant, alone, and heartbroken
Sat, 09-22-2012 - 4:51pm
Hi I'm 18 years old and just found out I'm pregnant with my boyfriend of a years baby. At first we were nervous but he made me feel so much better. He bought us baby books and started picking names out and then one day when he told his parents he called me and said he's done with me. He said he wants me to give it up or he won't have anything to do with the kid. I cried and begged him to not do this and then he told me yesterday he would think about all of this and tell his parents how much he loved me. He wrote me a letter this morning telling me he's moving to Oregon today and wishes me the best. Now I am alone and scared and don't know what to do. Please help me. In so heart broken I can't breathe.

Oh, honey. I'm so sorry you are going through such a difficult time. It sounds to me that his parents have a lot to do with his decision, and that is just too bad. :smileysad: Maybe he just needs a little time away to focus his thoughts and emotions. It isn't fair to you at all, though. Do you have a supportive family or friends that you can lean on at this time?

Hang in there and please keep us posted on how you are doing. Sending you tons of gentle (((HUGS))).

I know this time is really tough, but just try to focus on the miracle that is happening right now! You are creating a brand new life. Try to focus on that. I know its hard, trust me.

Hugs to you. I went through my whole pregnancy alone. My sons father left when I was 6weeks pregnant. Its hard not having a father around there at the appts but you know what? The baby won't know any different. Concentrate on all the happy moments you are experiencing. The kicks, the gender reveal, etc. Lean on your friends. Its not the same but its better than a revolving parent that can't be counted on and keeps breaking your heart.
