Default 35 Weeks & Nervous

Im 35 weeks pregnant and my other half been locked up for about a month already and all i can think about is giving birth to our son all alone and he not being there is literally hurting me i dont tell him about it because i dont want him to stress out about it either. This is our first child together i have a daughter from a previous relationship and he has two children from a previous relationship as well but it bothers me so much. I hope and pray he gets out by his next court date before my due date

I had my son via c section on October 2nd. My husband was sentenced to 13 years he has already served 2. I will be taking my son to see his father I want them to have a good relationship.

My son is 10 years old and my husband been incarcerated for 14 years so yes we have trailers (frp visits) and even though we were young at the time,we were definitely not planning on something like this but it happened and we are now blessed with a loving beautiful son.Hes still locked up but he'll be coming soon and then hopefully we'll be blessed with another baby. Lucky for us we're able to spend quality time together in the trailers, so his son is very connected with his father.

My son was born 8 months in to my husbands incarceration. He is one month old today and my husband has been in for about 9 months now. It really sucks. He is fighting his case so we arent sure when he will be out hoping for the best☺

My daughter was supposed to be born yesterday but honestly I’m not getting any real signs that she’s coming soon and i’m getting soooo frustrated! Everywhere I turn I hear about having sex but I can’t cause my man is locked up. It’s just an overall shitty situation, I’m trying to stay strong ladies but it’s hard and I worry I might end up suffering from Post partum depression. I would have never wanted my child to come into this world without both her parents present. Her father just doesn’t seem to understand my anger either which makes it 10x worse.

I wish I could help with the anger and frustration, but just know a product of your love is coming to this world very soon.

Look up the eggplant parm recipe for inducing labor. Worked for me!

I gave birth to my fiancť’s first child alone it made me so upset and sad more than anything he got out and bonded with our son and now I’m pregnant and he’s in prison again. I’m going to be pissed if he misses this birth. I’m not trying to do it again

I had my daughter 2 months ago and my daughters father was sentenced to 90 months on my birthday 2 days before my daughter was born , although we got to video visit and everything during labor it was still probably the hardest thing and I feel like he doesn't really understand what I am going through going through this by myself . He got sentenced when I was 3 months pregnant and it has been the hardest thing.

My daughters dad was on CYA parole when we met, I was 14, I knew nothing about CYA or being a child on parole. He violated right after I found out I was pregnant, but made it out in time to be in the delivery room, two weeks later he's back in on a violation - out again for a few months to a year and then sh*t got real as adults and he ended up serving 12.5 years. Was sentenced 24 years, but put himself all the way through the 6th circuit of appeals and won. Didn't take him long to fall back into his natural born ways. I say it's ironic that I left him and ended up marrying another inmate, but it was witnessing both their behavior's against each other's that made so much to me and my life crystal clear - what remorse looks like, what men say and do for love, or what true desire for evolving into the best version of yourself acts like... the journey has been REAL interesting. I have no regrets, my poor ex - I wish him well, but he knows to never ever seek or speak to me again, for nothin!

My baby was born and tragically died 3 months later all while my husband has been locked up. I birthed him and buried him alone. I am heartbroken and honestly I donít know if my husband and I are going to make it. I need him out here....
