I'm a 33yr old single mom of 2 girls, expecting my 3rd. I'm divorced and my girl's father is emotionally and verbally abusive and a superficial bully at times, still even though we're divorced. We split them 50/50 and the kids would rather be with me...He only pays half of daycare and that's it, so it's hard to live in the area tgat I do as a single woman, it is breaking me and he doesn't care. I have a geographical restriction in my divorce that he never fails to remind me about when something new comes up in my life.

I am also 17 weeks pregnant and doing it alone...met someone who I think is bipolar and has made every excuse not to see me by promises I'm not going to do this alone. He was great at first and everything was wonderful and he was supportive, helpful, went to appointments. We even talked about moving in together. All that changed and he blames it on his issues. I've cried over it so much and never expected to be in this situation but I have a very supportive family.

I've decided to move about 45 minutes away from here and move in with my mom,and dad so they can help me during this time. I have a great job but my divorce ruined my credit and I financially strapped right now. So my parents are helping me until I can rent a house close to them which will be a way cheaper area than where I am now and my kids will learn about the value of community instead of having everything they want. With this move I've decided I can't make a 45 minute drive every day twice a day so I'm going to change schools for My kids. I'm very afraid at how my ex will react because he's already threatened to take me to court and sue me for child support . It's best for them I think and he's selfish and I can't keep letting him treat me this way. I'm just scared and in need of some encouragement and support and woukd like to find out if there are any other moms out here in Denton, TX that might need a new friend!

I'm sorry you're having to deal with this alone, but the good thing is you have your parents for help. That's worth so much! Since you have a little one on the way, I'd say to try and focus on keeping yourself healthy most of all. Try not to stress out about things you can't control right now. Later, after the baby is born, I'd definitely look into filling with a lawyer for child support. Him only having to for half the daycare bill isn't enough. Good luck and God Bless!
