I went through kind of a similar situation, minus the military. I'm 23, my baby's father is 27. I had lived with him for about 6 months before I got pregnant. We had been fighting a little before I got pregnant, and afterwords he just started avoiding me. We both moved out of our apartment in January (I moved to my dad's, he moved to his parents) to save money. Long story short... he broke up with me a month later when I was 4 months pregnant. So I know how you feel there. Honestly, if things were rocky before you even got pregnant, it might be better that you're seperated for now. After my boyfriend and I broke up I started to feel better (not right away of course). He ended up avoiding me and getting a girlfriend, but strangly enough, not talking to him helped me. It feels better to me now that I just have myself and my baby girl to worry about, not some guy. I don't have to think about what he's doing, or if he's going to call me, or whether or not he really wants to be with me. Take this time apart from him to focus on yourself and your baby. You are one of the lucky ones who have a supportive family. I am also one of those lucky ones. I will tell you, you really learn to appreciate everything people do for you. I think I'm a better person now because of this pregnancy.. and having to be alone. I feel 100 times stronger than I was at the beginning, I've learned a lot about myself, and I'm honestly happier now that I'm not with the father. The last thing I wanted was a broken home, but honestly, if I would've stayed I would've been unhappy, and my baby girl would've sensed that and been unhappy too. I think sometimes it's actually better just to seperate. If you and your baby's father are meant to be together, he'll come around. Some guys just get scared and need a little space. So for now, just try your best to be happy for your baby. Try not to think about your ex. Things will get easier with time.

you have to let go and let live girl. It is harder to hold on to the pain then to let it go. I say you let bve apart of the chils life but not your.

I can see that you are upset, maybe this guy really does care about you. But you know what he hasn't once proven or shown you that he loves you. If he did, he'd come see you, he would MAKE the time to see you, he would come clean with everything. Military does wierd things to people, if you are enlisted and have a personal relationship things can get real rough, trust is a big issue most times. I've got frineds and family in the military and the majority of them are divorced or still single for a reason. one male friend is divorced with a couple little girls, his ex went to live with her family. he still cares i see it in his face and he adores his children. Its hard to balance life in the military and a personal life. Be strong, focus on yourself and the baby, make sure you have his information so that court ordered or not he holds up his end in the responsibility of raising a child! I'm glad your moving back to your family, you need the stable loving enviornment. My ironically when I fiound out i was pregnant with my first, my b/f was also cheating on me. I told him and he thought it was some sort of game to keep him, i felt that he is the father and has the right to know, what he does with that information is his business. He has never met my child by his choice, that is his loss. and my child and I are definately better off. Best of luck to you.

Michelle, I really think you need to let go of a possible relationship with him, this doesn't mean that you should empty him out of your heart, but don't sit around waiting for him to come to you, or for a possible future relationship, because what if it doesn't happen? You don't want your life to revolve around "what if's" because your baby needs you more than anything. You and your baby should be your one and only priority right now. I don't doubt that the father of your baby loves you, I'm sure he does but the thing is, I don't think he loves you in a way of being in a relationship with you. Rather he loves you - as a person, as the mother of his baby, but he's not in love with you, as a partner or lover. It obvious that he started to feel this way for awhile, but was probably afraid to tell you, because he didn't want to hurt you. I know that's SO unfair, why allow you to continue to believe in something that's not there? A lot of guys are like this, especially if they still care about you (as a person) it's hard for them to see you hurting. I know it's super hard to try not to read too much into his emails, the "i

OOPS! I accidently pushed "submit" ....ANYWAYS, what I was trying to say was, try not to read too much into his emails, the I miss you comments and I love you, because he does love you, but not the way you want or need him too. His love for you is probably verging on the edge of being platonic. Anyways, take care of yourself, do what you need to do to make your life happier for you and your baby. Live life instead of waiting on a possible relationship with him, because it might never come along and you don't want to end up missing out on the things life has to offer you and your baby. What you might have to do is just accept the fact that an intimate relationship with him is over, but a friendship with him and relationship between him and his baby is not out of the question. Good luck!
