Im 7 and a half months pregnant and all my partner and I do is argue and shout and cause each other stress. Should I split up with him and have the baby on my own or should I stay in this relationship. He is not willing to make any effort to get help with me to stop all the arguments. I just don't know what to do anymore. I know that the arguments are no good for the growing baby and when the baby is born he/she will be able to feel the negative vibes and I don't want that for my child... What should I do?

Pregnancy puts strain on ANY relationship. All couples argue from time to time & pregnancy hormones just make that worse. It doesn't necessarily mean you should break up.

How long have you been together? Do you love each other? If you think it's in your best interest to split up with him then do so, but if you can try working out your problems it would definitely be worth doing. Being a single parent is HARD.

We've been together for 2 years and a half. And as much as I would love for us to sort out our problems that involves talking and any time it gets a little bit heated or unpleasant, or I say something that he doesn't like then he either walks off or says he's not having this conversation anymore and says we will have it later and never brings it up again. Your right about pregnancy hormones making it worse but this has been going on for a while now!!!

I know exactly how you feel. I'm only 12 weeks preg. and me and my boyfriend have been fighting like no other. We've been together for about two years also. I know some of it has to do with hormones, but I think his "hormones" or whatever guys have are outta whack too. He seems to be getting just as angry with me all the time. I don't know if its lack of intimacy because I have absolutely no sex drive at them moment, or what. We had a huge fight yesterday because I asked him to change his shirt before we went to my dr. appointment. His shirt was so stained with grease and oil (he's a mechanic) so I just asked him to change and put on a decent shirt. He took that way overboard like I was embarrassed of him or something. After that whole ordeal we just had a long talk and I was on the verge of breaking up with him. I just can't take the fighting anymore. I told him to think about what he wants for the rest of the day while we both went back to work. He came home later and apologized for having such a crappy attitude lately, and I apologized for mine also.

We've always fought quite a bit, but we love eachother so much. Its just gotten so much worse lately. He admitted to having some anger issues (he's never hit me or anything, just gets upset easily) and I admitted to shutting him out sometimes. I really hope we can work things out. Anyway, I hope you guys can work things out!
Good luck to you!

Sick of arguing
I am in a similar situation. My boyfriend has the worst temper and doesnt realise how upset I get when he shouts, if i start to cry he will hang up the phone or walk out the room saying he cant be dealing with this. Its making me depressed and making me question if I want a child with him. I think if ur hurting and stressed all the time maybe its best you are on your own as hard as that maybe x
