It's been 7 months past dday. I was about 2 months pregnant when I found out about the cheating, and we've been apart ever since. Just wanted to give an update to you wonderful SI members.
On September 12th, I welcomed my wonderful and beautiful daughter. I've had the support of friends, some flew out of town to support me physically, emotionally and financially since I have no family in the US.
On September 25th, I celebrated my 30th birthday.
I'm still in school part time, working towards my Master's. Will resume fulltime studies in Spring of 2014.
I'm in a better place emotionally. Growing stronger everyday though I still have moments of sadness and regret.
Recap on my ex:
He apologized when he came to the hospital to see DD. He missed everything from Dr's appointments, to ultrasound to birth. He has missed it all and only saw her for a few mins the day after she was born. She was sound asleep the entire time. Maybe she wasn't too thrilled to see him. I did not believe his apology...didn't come from the heart and there have been no actions on his part to support his words.
His child support payments have increased. However, he's not paying me the amount he should. Says he is living hand to mouth and will have to look for a second job. That's his problem, not mine. I'm not the one who cheated and threw all our dreams away.
