Separating after baby comes
Husband and I are pregnant with baby #2 and have a very volatile relationship. Neither of us are happy and have tried counseling, etc to try to make it work. Baby #2 was a surprise and we had previously agreed to separate before we found out I was pregnant. Long story short, after baby comes we will be splitting and co-parenting. We have decided this on good terms, no anger or hostility just sadness. I am feeling very anxious about being a “single mom” but also don’t want my children to see their mom and dad miserable trying to make a marriage work that shouldn’t have happened in the first place. Just looking for input if anyone has been through something similar, how do you stay strong for the kids and for yourself? What support system did you use? (I have no family nearby at all unfortunately) any words of encouragement would be helpful! The baby comes in 7 weeks and I know things are going to change drastically for my family in the months coming up.
