Pregnant and stressed
Hi Aida and welcome to Beyond Blue forums
Also, a very warm congratulations on your news - you are having a baby. Lovely news.
Your life does sound very much organised for you, and also very difficult. Domestic violence is not ok. Being hit is not something that I find very good - especially when you're pregnant. Who is there in your life, other than your husband, that could give you some support during this very important time? For example trusted friend or close family member?
Also so I can understand a little more, can you give me an idea of what support you would like from us here at BB? For example - just to talk to someone? Do you want ideas about how you can improve your circumstances? Or ideas about who you can call or visit to help you?
If it was me, I would phone - 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732). It helps people in domestic violence situations. Their webpage - www.1800respect.org.au/help-and-support/services-overview/ gives details about the services they provide.
You're not alone Aida. Keep reaching out if and when you want to.
