Well sweetie its all about sled motivation. It sounds rediculious and rude but I don't mean it to. I've been dealing with some very negative and absolutely incredulous behavior from my sons father this pregnancy and at first it would make me so sad at times I found it hard to even take care of my two little boys (this will be my third) but I took a stress management class that helped a lot more than I would have thought. It gave me time outside the house which we all need and it informed me that positive self talk and figuring out what is wrong is the first step. From there I have begun working tword becomeinf more self sufficient and have informed my sons father that if things are not in the road to change between when we had that talk and when my new little boy is borne that I would me moving and we would be coparenting and not living together nor would we be in any kind of romantic relationship. Take what is wrong or bringing you down and work in anyway you can toward making it how you want it even if its just something as simple and giving yourself more time outside the house

I read your other post.... I just want to say you are a grown woman everyone can make a mistake! Its not like you planned for this to happen but everything happens for A reason!!! Just tell both men what is going on so they are both prepared for the out come. You really shouldn't beat yourself up over this. **** happens of course you go through all these emotions and downing yourself but sweetie you didn't know you were going to end up pregnant! The last thing you need to be doing is stressing yourself out because you can't change it! I would talk to your Dr a bout getting the DNA test done while you are pregnant that will take a lot of stress off of your shoulders!! Just try to stay positive and be happy YPUR HAVING A BABY!!!!!:)

I definitely agree with dorothy701 getting out of the house does help as well talking to someone who might understand what you're going through. I've been dealing with stress from my baby's father not being around during my pregnancy and being stuck at home a lot lately due to bad weather doesn't seem to be helping at all. Every time I do get out I feel a lot better so I'd try it as often as you can.

Hey sweetie just wanted to see how you were doing. I know self motivation can come and go lord knows I have the days when it sounds better to just pull the covers up over my head and not get up lol. Hope your doing OK.
