‘Are you sleeping with my husband?’ He was working ‘odd jobs’ at her house. There was always something he needed to ‘fix.’: Woman finds self-love after infidelity, ‘I deserve to be enough for someone’

“Kayleigh and I were inseparable friends. After years of infertility, she was the first person I told about my pregnancy. ‘That’s great, babe!’ she squealed. She was such a support, dragging me off to go baby shopping on weekends. I was 4 months pregnant, but it got to the point where my suspicions were just too strong. I confronted her. She looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘No. But he’d be all mine if I wanted him.’ I was totally shocked.”

“He had been acting weird for the last few months. I thought he was going through a mid-life crisis. I felt invisible.

I felt like a shell of a person.”

“My husband was on military duty, and I was all alone. He’d joked with me the weeks before that I was definitely having twins because I was already showing, and he was right. My body was and is completely different. I have these 2 new precious lives, but also this brand-new belly, stretch marks, and lose skin. As a fitness trainer, I no longer ‘fit the part’ with chiseled abs and a six pack.”
