Well, the only thing you can do is tell him the truth about how you feel. If you were concerned about this situation coming to pass did you not use birth control? I'm not just talking about the pill, but condoms? I am aware that BC fails (very very aware).
Tell him the truth. That this is surprise for you and you don't want him to feel trapped. Go from there. You have options to discuss with him. Adoption? Abortion? Parenting? Take the time to go through it all with him.
Yes, its overwhelming. I'm sorry you are feeling so side-swiped by it.
We are definitely madly in love. I want this baby. I know he wants children but this may be a bit premature. However, I'm 40, not 25, 30 0r even 35. I want a sibling for my daughter too. The thought of an abortion, while I am definitely pro-choice, does not seem like something I would feel right about.
Is it wrong of me to say "it's up to you? I'll do what you want to do?"
thank you all. I'm having this baby. My best friend and closest cousin are totally supportive. I'll go to the love. Also we both lost our fathers in the last 2 years & I feel this baby is a part of each of them.... and a gift to both our mothers....
