My husband and I have been together for 8 yrs and expecting baby number 3. Baby #3 was totally not planned nor expected. Ok well recently I caught him with cocaine and world came tumbling down and ever since that day we have argued non stop every time he gets drunk ( which is every weekend). He constantly degraded me and tells me shitty things. On top of this he does not touch my belly nor mentions our baby. Also since he is the only one working he told me to move the hell out of our home. He constantly says this and that is mine and this is yours. I freaking fed up with everything and will file for divorce but I’m afraid they won’t hire a prego women and plus my little boy is supper attached to him. I don’t know how to not hurt his feelings.
im sorry you find yourself in this position. But I think you have to honestly ask yourself “what is the safest place for me and my children (both current and to be)” and go to that place. I personally think it would be somewhere where drugs are not involved but I don’t know your specific situation. I wouldn’t focus on him not touching your belly...my DH rarely did that in my last pregnancy, they just don’t relate like we do when babe is in the womb. However, if there are other warning signs that a future baby may not benefit in your current living situation I would strongly recommend you to remove yourself from that place.
As for being hired because you're pregnant, a) it's illegal to not hire someone based on pregnancy, b) you won't be pregnant forever c) pregnant women get hired all the time, it's sometimes just an obstacle to finding the right job. Don't let that keep you in a shitty situation.
