I'm just wondering, since me and my SO are not married, will he have to adopt the child when it's born? Is there anything I should be aware of, being an unwed mommy?

We want to get married, "someday" (just like we wanted to have kids, "someday" lol... baby beat us to the punch on that one).... but I'm just wondering if we should just do it before the kid is born.

Good question! I have no idea, but I guess I should find out too. I don't think so, though.

We had my DD when we werent married. As long as he is the father then you put his name on the babys Birth Certificate and he doesnt have to adpot her at all. I also gave my DD his last name... It was a personal choice you have the right to chose yours or his...
