First of all, do not let anyone, even your boyfriend, pressure you in any way to get an abortion. If you want to mother this little son or daughter then what you need is support and encouragement. If your boyfriend cannot provide that, turn to friends and family who can.

On the other side, many ladies in here will tell you that it can take a while for the baby's father to adjust emotionally to the new responsibility. Give him time and let him bring up the subject for now.

Few of us were financially stable when we first got pregnant unexpectedly. It's really not that big of a deal and so much can change in 9 months. On the flip side, if you are waiting for that 'magic' moment you may never feel that it's the right time. Or what seems like the right time can change into instability during the pregnancy. None of us knows the future. What we do know is that we love the baby growing inside us and are willing to take a chance and take on the challenge. It's worth it, and you're not going to regret it.

I would encourage you to join a due date club here on just mommies. It's a lot of fun and encouraging to connect with other moms due at the same time you are. Yu may even find other moms in the same situation that you're in. Take a step back, don't let your boyfriend's reluctance stress you out. Enjoy these first few weeks of baking your little one!
