He may need all of the time to wrap his head around the fact that he is going to be a father, whether or not he chooses to step up to that magnificent role.

You are in a very tough situation, but you know how much you love this baby already and what choices you've already considered and tossed. You know you better than anyone.

Do what is right for you. It may hurt for him to turn away, but you still have support. You still have a tummy full of love. You still have your strength, wits and heart. Be frank. Plan for the worst, but hope for the best.
Yeah, I suppose. Well, he already is a dad, twice. Three times if you count the one I let him convince me to get rid of.

You're an adult woman who is perfectly capable of doing this on your own. If he doesn't want to be a father then let him go. It will be better for you and the baby.
First. Me thinking of telling him I'd think about adoption is not the same thing as telling him I'd do it.

Second, as my first post says, I have told him I am. Why else would he bring up adoption?

Nowhere did I post that I would tell him I wouldn't keep it.

I'm not playing any games. I told him when he brought it up, that I don't know if I could do adoption.

I'm not commenting on anymore negative seeming replies.
