OP, good that he loves your daughter - that is one less thing for you to worry about. For the very same reason, you can be reasonably assured that he wont carry out his empty threat. So, if you are in this to keep your family intact, you have to make more effort in a particular direction - it is not enough for your daughter to just have her father and mother, it is also important for her to witness good relationships. Considering how that will be asking for a lot, with the way your husband has been behaving, you must put all your efforts into getting back your self respect in this house. Focus your attention on yourself. You, your pregnancy, your growing baby, and your little child. I'm sorry to hear about your parents, and for the time being, we cannot do anything about them. Save yourself first. You should start practicing disengagement with your spouse. Even if you give back, it is engaging them. It enables their abusive nature - especially in those prone to anger issues. Do you really think if you give back to your spouse or MIL, they will start seeing the error of their ways or realise its painful to you? No! They are just going to use that to fuel more anger against you. I am not advising you to shut up. You can give back : they will know they cant say whatever they please to you. But I urge you to go even stronger. Start engaging yourself in ways that you will have minimal interaction with them. Stop looking to your husband to help you out. Stop expecting him to be nice. Make yourself independent, cultivate a space and lifestyle for you. Enjoy your daughters company. And move on. Give up spending any kind of energy or effort on them. Put it all into yourself and your children. When they retaliate in anger - they will, be forewarned - FIRST dont bother, dont let it affect your mind...please please its super tough, but the most essential. Be cool; you can reply back, but dont argue. Just give your piece of mind and move on. Ensure you move physically away if the situation turns towards physical demonstrations. This coolness of mind, I-dont-give-a-damn will be your biggest weapon. Also, about the bed: if space constraints are an issue, maybe you can look at replacing your sofa with a sofa cum bed kind of thing? Just a suggestion. Regarding your health, please ensure you take care of YOUR diet, and get exercise - it is very important for GD. Are you on diet control alone, or taking insulin/tablets? One more thing, just because your family back in India is unable to support you does not mean you are helpless. If it really comes to it, there are always other resources that you can tap. So YOU don't think you are lost case and sitting here helpless (whatever your husband things - who cares!) - remember that you are here to enable your daughter /children have their father's love in their day-to-day lives - and you are a strong woman for making that choice! Lots of love to you.
