Once I realized I was pregnant, I changed. I was responsible for someone else's life and well being, it wasn't all about me all the time anymore. FWH didn't change. He was selfish still. He would leave me and our daughter all alone all weekend and he would be out with his buddies carousing. He worked hard all week (he did) so he was entitled. I bought into this. His selfishness grew and grew.
I let him become the selfish, entitled prick that he turned out to be. Plus, his role model father was one of the most entitled, selfish person's around who cheated on my MIL. He really didn't have a clue that is not how real men should be.
He has changed. He is no longer selfish. He thinks about me all the time. He thinks about my needs, how he can help me, how he can be there for me.

We were discussing the Hell Bitch and her rewriting of our marital history. My daughter told me that she knew there was a problem years ago. Said that she noticed that her stepmom's Facebook page had no pictures or references to me whatsoever. Most of her photos were selfies. She referred to "My house", "My yard", "My garden" when she posted pictures, and accepted the compliments.... on MY hard work. Daughter had also noticed that when we brought a dish to a function (that I had cooked) she accepted the compliments when others automatically assumed that she, as the woman, had prepared it.
Of course I asked DD why she didn't say something. The answer kind of hurt. She told me that the adoration and devotion that I had for her Stepmom made her fear that I would automatically side with her against my daughter.
The sad thing is, DD is probably right. I feel like an ass.
I made her a sandwich and filed for D.
I can really relate to this...
He really set out to impress and win me.
