I am 21 weeks pregnant, and recently left the father of the baby. The father goes to the few appointments that have been scheduled but has nothing else to do with the baby. He doesnt ask question, doesn't know that the baby is kicking... basically he is NOT involved except in Public. I have a low paying job, but still manage to buy the crib and other furniture. I know that my family is there to help me in any way they can, so why isnt the father! He makes comments saying he is going to be the BEST dad ever. So when does fatherhood begin. So far he is not a dad in my eyes. So my question is, should I name the baby with MY last name or the Fathers? If the father isnt involved now, then how do I know he ever will be?
