Like you need ANOTHER kid to take care of. He can either man up or step out, but either way he's going to be paying to support this child for the next 18 years. A child is a blessing and if he can't see that he should have kept it in his pants or covered it up. Plain and simple.

And btw I understand you have an emotional attachment, but once you step out of this situation and move on, you will be so thankful you did. Go find a real man.
I don't disagree that he's immature.

If you do decide you are unable to care for this child, then please consider adoption. Many families would love to help you in your time of need with medical assistance and financial compensation. But this baby is a life.. Not a choice. We look at these images on u/s and rejoice fir each other! Itty bitty babies with heart beats! BABIES. People say it's the mother's choice but what about the babies choice? I'm sorry to sound like this but abortion is not a teeth cleaning type of procedure. In and out with no harm done. It's a life and it's murder. I don't want anyone to feel pain from a past decision. I've been there and I regret it constantly. I wish someone would have stood up to me then and told me there was another way. I will pray for you and the pain and confusion you must be feeling. But God is good! He will honor your decision to protect life. It won't be easy alone but you can do it!
It's not an option to me either, which is why I told him if it happens again, I would not make the same decision. Obviously he doesn't believe me about that.

I will not go the adoption route. My kid is just that, mine.

I did tell him it is a life. I said to him, if it exists, it's a life.

I have had an abortion, I don't need to be told what it's like.

I'm not religious.

In the end, you have to decide whether those good parts are worth what you are going through right now. Whether they're worth the fear that he will find some other dumb thing he doesn't like and bully you into changing with the threat of him leaving.

It's obvious to me that you want to be a mother. That you want this child. Do you want it badly enough to not let him rob you of that dream?

You're strong enough to stand up for yourself, whichever you decide.
I agree with you. How he's acting is very selfish. And he's telling me I can't support it, because I'm on govt assistance. That's not his decision to make.

Thank you.

This isn't some tribe in a third world country. You have the final say as to what goes on in your body. You won't be the first or last woman to do it on their own. If you are again offended by the tone of my post, that's on you. It's the truth and like they say the truth hurts.
Please don't jump to conclusions. I was taking bc pills since November. Nowhere did I say abortion is an option. Please read another reply of mine, above this.

I'm not putting any blame on him. If anything, he's not taking responsibility.

It's time that you put yourself and the baby first. Make plans for living without him. That doesn't mean you have to end things with him, just be prepared for the possibility without him. If he comes around and decides to be involved? Wonderful. If not? You'll still have all your ducks in a row. His opinion about this working doesn't matter at all as long as you've determined to find the finances to make this work.
I agree. He tells me I am not ready, that I can't take cared of it. But how does he know? He can't speak of what I can and can't handle. He only has the right to speak for himself.

Oh, things with him will end. I won't end them, but he will. Unless by some miraculous change of heart on his part, he decides he's ready after all. Which I will not hold my breath for.

You're right, it doesn't matter.

In the womb or outside the womb - there is no difference. Did you know that the bible book of Psalms (chapter 139, verse 16) says that God notices even embryos? God takes the time and effort to notice a child while still in the womb... does that not show the importance of an unborn baby?

First I must say I am not religious, and mentioning that offends me.

There's no "taking" from me. What he is saying I should do is get rid of it.
