@Soul4me I felt exactly the same way. The idea that my son wouldn't be with me for any length of time made me sick. I tried explaining that to my divorce attorney, but he never understood anything I was going through. I tried explaining how I felt to my friends and family, but most of them thought I'd actually be happy for the time by myself. They obviously didn't understand me either.
In truth, the time away wasn't too bad, the time did seem to pass somewhat quickly, but it helped that my ex was so into being a bachelor that he missed a lot of weekends with our son. I would also call my son while he was with his father several times on Saturday and Sunday. This made my ex husband angry - he didn't call our son at all during the time he was with me, so my ex thought I shouldn't call and check on my son when he was with my ex. That was crazy, of course I was going to check on my son!
The point is, the first few times were bad, but I got used to it - to an extent. I made myself stay busy and I made sure I had something to watch or do during Friday and Saturday nights when my son was with my ex. You will get though it. It will be okay.

Yes, I have been thinking about what I could do to pass the time and I definitely know there will be tears the first few times. But I have been told to include her father in her life as much as possible...it’s weird because we raised two other children, older together you would think I would be okay.

@GirlKitty the father of my younger child didn't want me calling either even though it was in court order I can call once a day. Also that she can contact me as much as she wants. He completely disregarded it.
