Just told my dad last night I'm pregnant and he initially took things well, as shocking as that was for me. Then suddenly he did a 180 this morning and is trying to guilt trip me into feeling bad and guilty because I told my mom first. I told him when I did because I know how he does this and his reactions usually range from depression or extreme anger. I've been conditioned to be terrified to ever come to him since an early age and it took a lot for me to even tell him this news. I was relieved when he took it so well, but then suddenly now I'm horrible person and I purposefully got pregnant to hurt him. All the happy posts my mother and I are making are met with sad and condescending comments like, "why is everyone saying congratulations?" And so on. I'm just so irritated and lost on how to handle this. It's hard for me to confront him because he either manipulates me into feeling bad or that I'm just being mean, or he'll get angry and blow up on me and say hurtful things he doesn't mean... I don't even know what to do because anything I've thought of I can't win.
Hi I am going through a similar situation except this is my first child. For the past 11 years I have been on and off with my ex. We never used anything because we loved each other and condoms I was allergic to. All those years I never got pregnant. I was concerned so I went to fertility doctor. They found out I had polyps I got those removed and still nothing. I had tried with another ex too but...
I have been experiencing panic attacks in the last month. They are increasing in severity. I have no one to talk to about it and support me. I could use some help and advice to get my life back to normal.
