Quoting Scared & Excited:" I always thought I wanted this baby, and I do, I have formed a bond with my little growing baby. But ... [snip!] ... life by wanting it. I wasn't the only one who did this to me yet I'm the only one taking responsibility for it. Rant over."I'm 22 years old, and my first trimester was the hardest as regarding my family and their choice of my baby. The father didn't stick around, and I believe if I would've terminated my baby, or opted for adoption we wouldve stayed together, even though I was deeply in love with him. I know that I will never experience any love like that of my own child. And keeping a man was just not worth that to me, if he couldn't man up about our situation wich he hasn't so far..he really wasn't the one for me. And didn't love me like I thought. And getting pregnant just showed me his true colors. I still get comments from my family..time to time. But i'm 31 weeks now and they are actually getting excited about it, I just understand that they knew it was going to be very difficult for me raising a baby on my own. And of course other concerns...like them having to help me raise the baby. But I made it very clear that I layed down, I got pregnant..and I understand that if they wanted more kids they would've had them their self. So i'm going to take care of my respsonsibility. And after I started buying everything she needed..they started to see that I was holding true to my word and taking care of my own. Everyone comes around in their own way..and if not..they don't. Your family might just possibly miss out on a beautiful grandbaby, neice...nephew whatever and they will have to deal with that at their own time. It is very hard going through a pregnancy alone and scared with no support..and that's all I really wanted was some kind of emotional support..but regardless I'm getting through it..and I'm very excited to meet my little baby girl eventually! I just couldn't imagine giving her up for adoption then later in life deciding now may be the right time to have a baby I couldn't do it knowing I let another child go..just because the father or whoever didnt stick around. I know someday a great guy will come along for me and my daughter and she give us everything we deserve. There is a reason for everything, no child is an accident from God. And now I see I was given this gift to change myself, I've became a lot stronger..and got out of a relationship that I possibly could've stayed in for years that just wasn't healthy and not truely being able to see the guy for what he was. You're right you both got pregnant. It was his choice just as well to choose to have sex unprotected or not..but regardless still choosing to do so knowing what the consequences may be..and he really doesn't sound that great for wanting you to do such a thing. So it doesn't sound to me like he is much of a keeper, but that baby is. A lot of guys as well get scared, not saying that should be an excuse. But a lot of my friends baby dads left them during their pregnancy and came back after the child was born..to me that will not be an option..if he couldn't stick by me and support me through a very hard time then he doesn't deserve me after my daughter is born. It's up to you, it's your body and it will be the decsions you will have to live with for the rest of your life. My mother got 2 abortions before having my brother and I and said it was because my dad said he wouldn't stick by her or support her..and everyday she has to live with that. And she really ended up resenting my father for it as well. Keep your head up, and do what you want!
