I’m pregnant and my mom and boyfriend just told me they are in love

Melissa Carton

What would you do in this situation?

Break ups are never easy, but what would you do if your ex partner started dating someone you knew?

Even worse what would you do if they started dating your own mother, while you’re pregnant with their child?

One woman recently cam up against this situation and is at a loss for what to do;

“My mom and ex just told me they are in love.

I have recently broke up with the father of my children. We were together 3 years and have 1 bio kid together and the other is my son from a previous relationship, I’m also now pregnant.

My mom also recently broke up with her boyfriend of many years. We all live under the same roof, my kids, my now ex and my mom. It’s only been 3 weeks and everything started seeming off.

My mom and ex were pushing me away while they got really close. Last night they confessed they are in love. I have already been having trouble processing the break up. (He said he lost feelings, I didn’t).

Now I feel so betrayed. My mom was one of the only people I had to confide in during the healing process, the whole time she was telling him everything.

I have no job, I’m high risk pregnant so I’m unable to work. My son does get a disability check for having autism. That’s my only income. I have no idea what to do or how to feel. So far I’ve been angry and felt betrayed. I’m stuck under the same roof as them currently.

I’m looking for advice on what my next steps should be.”

Turning to parenting forum Mama Uncut the upset expectant mum received a lot of replies, mainly ones of shock and anger towards her mother and ex;

“Mother or not, it’s time to rid yourself of the toxic environment your kiddo and you are in. You’re already high risk and the stress from this situation isn’t helping. Your mother KNOWS better than this. It’s time to move on mama.”

“Seek out all the government aid allowed, including low cost housing.
Love yourself and move out of that Hell House and cut all ties with this toxic family.”

I honestly do not know what I would do in this situation but I agree with those who replied that she should distance herself from her mother and her ex.

Absolutely shocking.
