Just hang in there! When I had to tell my ex that I was pregnant with my DD, it was the scariest thing I have ever done. We tried to make it work (even though I shouldn't have bc he was abusive, mentally and physically) but eventually we drifted. A baby is a miracle, but it is not "glue" to keep a relationship together. From my experience, if the relationship isn't strong then a baby will show you just how weak it is
Sorry to be so negative, as that is my experience with the situation. He could be the exception that just needs that boost to commit
Do you mind me asking why you are afraid to tell him? Fear he will leave or get upset?
You said you've had a prior pg by him and he wasnt supportive so you already know what ur dealing with. It's unfortunate, but thats the man you chose. Time to put your big girl panties and get prepared for Dec with or without him. I'm only saying this as a woman that has a shaky relationship as well. I want him there but if he isn't I'll still have a LO coming in Dec....
Maybe I would wait til 12 weeks and pretend I had no idea and just found out. That way he can't pressure you to abort or anything. Isn't 12 weeks too late? Then like it or not here comes baby and neither of you have a choice in the matter.
