I am 32.5 weeks pregnant with a ds 4 year old as well. I would really like to start the mediation part of our separation as my ex is giving me h*ll and it would make things easier to plan for the future. He is trying to bully me into taking a newborn for sleepovers! He thinks i'm being a bish and won't listen to me when I say that newborn sleepovers is unrealistic. He has our ds on a Tuesday night for a sleepover and has been having him on a Saturday night too- unless my ex is 'tired'. His work means that from now until October he won't be able to have ds every Saturday but maybe able to do a Friday or a Sunday night or miss the weekend sleepover altogether. He is angry that I want something definite and feels I should be flexible. I can work at home some nights and I have always put his work first but now I need to work as much as possible hence the need for set nights. Its no longer my responsibility to work around him to my own financial detriment.
Can I do mediation first? It's exhausting dealing with him and I am hoping mediation will help him see that newborns need to be with their mums.
Any help would be great.
