Hey everyone! Im looking for a little advice about my situation.... My bf and i have been together for over 2years now and have a 9month old together. Before we were considering having a child he was the sweetest man you could date, we planned on getting married and having children once i finished college. Although it didnt exactly work out that way I still wouldnt change anything. I absolutely adore my LO. When we found out i was pregnant he was estatic, but soon after everything started to go down hill.... I just didnt want to believe it. He was never really involved in the pregnancy but with it being our first i just blew it off thinking that he was just nervous. ( Yes i had blinders on....I see the red flags now). As i got bigger and closer to my due date he started to grow cold and unloving. Although it upset me, I still blew it off thinking everything would change once he saw our beautiful baby girl. Then finally the big day! I had a very difficult delivery and was rushed for emergency surgery soon after delivering my daughter...one of the most beautiful times in my life quickly became one of the scariest. But it was nice to know he was there for me and was being supportive. How quickly that changed… He changed the diapers 2x in the hospital and once at home. that is it. Ive raised my little girl from the beginning and plan on continuing to do so. I am a full time stay at home mom as of right now, i was let go from my job when i went on maternity and have not been able to find a decent one again since. So we rely soley on her father for her diapers, food etc... He recently took a job driving truck that requires him to be gone 24/7 traveling the US so now hes never home to see us. Because of this, its put an even bigger strain on our relationship and made things worse. Now because hes gone he thinks its alright to skip out on helping with her....so my LO and i had no choice but to move in with my parents until we can get back on our feet.
Im honestly considering filing for child support and full custody of my daughter...but have never been in a situation like this before and would love some feed back. Im sorry for the long rant. thank you so much for the help!
