Brite - Congratulations! She is gorgeous!!!! I am so happy for you guys. What a perfect name. Welcome Riley!!! Rest up and enjoy this precious time!
KS - I am so glad to hear you are healing up well and that the babe is doing great. Congratulations to everybody!!!
Dandy - Woah! I am SO FRICKING THANKFUL that the pickle and you are both doing okay. What an intense experience. I can't even imagine the rollercoaster of emotions you must be going through right now. I will be thinking of you guys so much and wishing the very, very best for all of you. Welcome to the world, little Adair! (Awesome name, by the way). Please rest up and take great care of yourselves and each other. Wishing as much ease as possible for you three right now.
Crystal - The situation you are in sounds really hard. I am really proud of you for being strong despite how heartbreaking it is right now. Breaking up is painful, especially when you are all shacked up and share so much - history, a place to live, a baby... But you are doing the right thing. I've only heard a few pieces of your story here, but many of her actions have been abusive. For example, isolating you from your friends and family and trying to make you feel guilty for taking care of your baby. It won't be easy to split up, and of course it will be sad. You have shared lots of good times together, and she's not a bad person, just someone with some tough issues she's not yet ready to face/deal with. But that doesn't mean that splitting up is not the right thing. It takes time to heal from heartbreak and move on. It will be easier when you guys don't live together anymore and you can start to rebuild your new life. Do you have a plan for where you or she will go? It will still be a HUGE change that will take some time getting used to, but you are resilient and will be okay. I agree with Darthtunaqueen, call your friends and tell them you miss them, and ask for their support. Lean on your friends and family for support, and keep on believing in yourself and the choices you're making for you and your baby.
Love to all of you!
