I lurk here, and am having unplanned babies myself. The father of my twins was all over the place and then denied them, and it has just been 'fun' since. I was not thrilled about being pregnant at all, and then I found out I was having twins. I almost died. I was in denial for a long time (probably up until a few weeks ago), and I still have moments where I panic.
anyways, I decided to keep them, and I agree....my body, my rules. If the dad doesn't want to be involved, and you are okay with being a single mom, then go for it. I know it would be ideal to have the guy in your life to help, but sometimes the negativity just isn't worth it.
I was in a bad relationship, and got pregnant when I was 19 with DD, and honestly, the best thing that I ever did was leave him. He is involved in her life, but never really was at the beginning. My biggest regret now is telling him that she was his. I have been a single mom since she was born 5.5yrs ago, and it has its very hard moments, but it is so worth it. I am scared now because I am going from 1 to 3 all at once, but sometimes being a single mom is easier than dealing with someone who just doesn't want to be there.
I am sorry if this makes no sense- I am tired, but anyways, whatever you do it is your choice. My DD changed my life in so many great and wonderful ways, and I would do it all over again if it meant that I had the same DD I have now. I couldn't imagine life without her.
