Recovery and finding peace in all of this is such a struggle

Recovery and finding peace in all of this is such a struggle. I keep my partner at arms distance and confide in those that are actually empathetic...
We went to our ultrasound today and we came back and my partner was all affectionate and saying "I love you." Fast forward a couple of hours and his boss/co-worker (female)and him are texting back and forth with her sending him smiley faces. She's unhappily married with kids and she leans on my partner as a "friend." I feel like this is like his supply now and I don't want to be suspicious but it's just got me all messed up tonight.
I don't know what I am looking for here, but I just needed somewhere to go in my head right now.

No I haven't. I suppose I don't know how to do it without the blow up, the defensiveness, and acting like I am crazy. With a normal person, you can approach it reasonably, ya know..?

@Wisteriasal yea, that's true. That's why they get away with everything though. They just go crazy on us. Do you have the option of leaving, in case he does that? You shouldn't be dealing with that while pregnant.

Yes and no...I can always go to my parents but I think to some degree, he has them under his world , so although they are supportive, they are also old school and think you can work it out. You can't work things out with someone who claims that "he is not the problem." It's like I need venting and validation, but I also need to detach , even if we are around each other...
