My boyfriend left me at 5 months pregnant

I am 5 months pregnant and my boyfriend left me. He claims that he cannot bear to see me stressed out and he feels he is adding to my stress hence he left. I am working full time and studying . My contract of employment will be ending in the next 3 months. I have tried talking to him to stay at least until birth for me and the baby's sake but he is adamant he made the right decision. Every attempt I have made to reconcile he points out why he shouldn't be with me as we are always fighting. To me it was not a big fight, it was something that we could have both easily fix. I don't know hoe to cope with the added stress and I am worried for the health of my baby.

I am so sorry he left. Do you think there were other reasons as well? Usually in a committed relationship the commitment deepens with pressure and stress, a commitment to help you make it through. You can do this mama, take a deep breath. Do you have friends or family around? Can you reach out with specific requests? Sometimes people don't step up because they don't know what to do. Here is an article about single parenting that might be helpful: Hugs sweet mama. Let me know how you are doing.
