Question: 

My husband's drunken one night stand (with a coworker he barely knows) has resulted in a pregnancy, and the baby is due any day now. We are only 3 months post D-Day, and I feel certain that the baby being born will be a huge setback for us. If we stay together, we intend to have the child in our lives. I'm not sure when that can happen, but it will happen at some point in the near future, once we are hopefully more stable in our marriage and further along in the recovery process. How do I deal with healing from the trauma of the affair while trying to help raise his child with another woman? Also, I am the one dealing with the affair partner, as I do not want them having any contact.
