I was with the father of the baby I'm pregnant to for 4 years, off and on. Our relationship was never great, but I was basically happy with him. He was charming, funny, knew exactly what 2 say 2 everyone, he had my heart in his hand, but even when things were close 2 perfect, it wasn't enough 4 him. He would disappear 4 days at a time, usually without any type of notice. I called him Waldo. It was finally over when I caught him lying 2 me and he got so angry he got caught that he beat me up. Then 2 months later, I find out I'm pregnant. I gave him another chance because he claimed he was ready 2 respect me and treat me better, he said a family with me was what he always wanted. when he came back, I found out there was another girl, someone who is the biggest waste of life on the planet literally, and she was pregnant also. He swore he wanted nothing 2 do with her and it was a mistake. Now its 3 months later, and hes engaged 2 her, and tells everyone my child not his. I know I'm better off without him, but I feel so overwhelmed and hurt.

I know how much you must be hurting, but you are actually very lucky.
