I'm so very sad to hear about this, and cannot imagine the depth of anger, sadness and despair you might be feeling. And although there is never a good timing; finding out yesterday must have been particularly devastating and surreal.
You have received some great advice (particularly from the wonderful Witwicky) and I'm sure many of us in here will continue to extend our support. Where do you live? If you are located near me I would love to give you've hand, an ear and a shoulder.

Thank you all so much for your warmth and support. FOB has taken ds for a few hours so I am starting to do some practical things. I won't get anything from Centrelink as I will be working through pregnancy and baby will come to work with me straight after. I will be organising mediation once they open early next week. I will make no decisions about birthing/labour as it's too big to think about but I have organised care for my son. I am hoping to find another single mum who will house share with me which should pay a 1/3 of this mortgage so baby will have somewhere solid to come home to and ds doesn't get stuffed around. I will also be giving the phone back to him when he drops ds off- I figure it's part of his sh*t and I want nothing but peace.
I am still in shock and whilst a bit teary I feel nothing else except for sadness for the little ones. I will continue with the 'day at a time' plan. The universe doesn't hand out more than one can handle right? Mum in Mind I am on the northern beaches of Sydney.

Oh my gosh I'm so sorry
In the wise words of Pooh to Christopher Robin :
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think
I hope you can surround yourself with positive, strong people so you can lean on them for a little while

to you FM,
From memory your past posts.. have always been so supportive of others with their problems and always offered nothing but sound, non judgemental caring advise..It just seems so unfair that you of all posters find yourself in this position..
I've proposed in past posts, that some men just don't get when it comes to their responsibilities..so all strength to you girl you'll be ok ..the universe cares
