Cait was shattered when her husband left her to start a family with a new woman. As told to Annabelle Scott
I’d been trying to get pregnant for two years after a miscarriage left me feeling devastated.
I was desperate to be a mum, and I’m the first to admit my obsession with getting pregnant was the main thing that ruined my marriage.
I also didn’t pay my husband Daniel much attention or recognition that he was hurting too. I made it “all about me” because it’s my body, and I saw it as my fault that I lost our baby and also my fault that I wasn’t getting pregnant again.
My life revolved around IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation), and every time my period arrived I had a total meltdown.
I even got a second job so I could take Daniel on a holiday, so we could mend our relationship and keep trying “naturally” while taking a break from IVF, which was so stressful.
I spent the entire two weeks away being an emotional wreck. I even had a tantrum when there was a pregnant woman with a toddler at the resort we were staying in. “She’s already got one baby, and now she’s having another one,” I cried.
I was a pain in the neck to be around and just a crying mess half the time, so I don’t really blame Daniel for cheating on me.
Not long after we got back from our holiday, I went into the bathroom and didn’t realise Daniel was in there. He was just standing next to the sink, texting someone. I knew right away he was up to no good because he looked so guilty.
