The prospect of being a single parent is scary. The reality is that it's hard, but so much better than what you're living. Since I left my ex, my stress levels have gone down (except when I have to talk to him) and I'm in the best financial position I've been since we got together.
A week after I left I found out I was pregnant. I decided another baby was not the right decision for me, even though ex really wanted it.
Sometimes I regret it, especially as i really want another baby now. But for the most part I'm happy with my decision as I wouldn't have been able to cope with more than dd.
Remember you should be entitled to 12 months maternity leave. Centerlink benefits arent a great lifestyle, but they are adequate to survive, especially until you go back to work and if you start saving now. Also, as a single parent and low income earner, there are great child care rebates.
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

I'm sorry you are having to make such a hard decision.
It sounds like no matter what you decide whether you have 2 children or 3 it will be easier than having him to support whilst he is abusing you.

advice needed! I don't know what to do!
He sounds like an awful person to be in a relationship with. If you are happy to have a termination could somebody else go with you? I had a medical termination (tablets not surgery) and took my mum with me, it was quick and easy and I do not regret it. I was 100% sure in my decision which made it easier. Hope things get better for you.
ETA: Didn't mean to sound too one sided. If you decided to keep the baby and were to leave him there is so much financial support that would be available to you through Centrelink, and as hard as it seems now you would get through the hard times and things will get better. The question I suppose is do you want the baby, regardless of money and your partner?
