I am 17 years old, I am also 23 weeks pregnant with a beautiful baby girl. Nothing is wrong with the pregnancy, I just need some advice on the father side of this.
I had gotten rid of him in the beginning as he just couldn't handle the fact that he was going to be a father, when we were only together for a short amount of time. A lot more to the story, he didn't show up for appointments, but the main thing that caused me to cut him out of the picture was that his best mate tried to cause me to miscarry (he has two assault charges both to pregnant women in the past by punching them in the stomach.) This all happened when I was around 6 weeks pregnant, all within the first two weeks of finding out about the baby all these events had occurred.
I've been thinking a lot about the father recently (not to get back with him or anything) but about my little girl. Like one day she is going to want to meet him and get to know him, and when that time comes I don't exactly want this all coming back at me and her hating me over the things that I did to protect her by keeping him out of it (even though he showed no initiative in actually doing anything for her or even showing up to appointments about her and with his best mate being ... violent)
So I'm not too sure whether I should patch up a friendship for her sake or what ? :(
