Boyfriend andI have been together 1.5 years. In the grand scheme of things relationship has been good and we love each other. A few months ago I found out I was pregnant. I stopped the pill to get a nexplanon implant and had a really bad reaction to it. Had it removed and was going to get a non hormonal iud a few weeks later. We used condoms so I don’t really know how it happened. He was really excited. I was terrified and freaked out, still am. I started staying with him most nights almost immediately after we started dating. After we found out about the pregnancy I officially moved in, we got engaged, and I quit my job to go back to school. Like I said overall everything has been great. He goes through these phases every few months where he is in a terrible mood. He will start a fight with me, we will get into in pretty bad and won’t talk for 2-4 days. Then he will apologize and we make up. So last weekend he was hanging out with his friends came home at like 2am. He woke me up coming in I just went to see what was going on. He immediately thought I was being a *** and trying to start a fight (really wasn’t) things got heated and he straight up choked me and hit my head against the wall a couple of times. I have some bruises on my arms. We made up everything is fine but internally I am freaking out and don’t know what to do. I am pregnant with his child, terrified, and don’t think I can do this without him. Never happened before. Don’t know if it will happen again. Never thought it would. Me being pregnant really complicates things. I’m not sure what I realistically should do. If I do have to leave he isn’t just going to accept that especially with me being pregnant. Any advice you could offer would be very helpful. I haven’t told anyone obviously.
