Single, Pregnant and Lonely

Ok so my boyfriend left me while I was around 4months pregnant. Im due in the 4-3weeks now. My baby girl can arrive any day now. The father hasn't had anything to do with me since the pregnancy. He doesn't call to see how things or goin or anything. He said he does want to be at the birth just to cut the cord sit for a lil bit than leave? That hurt me just for him to say that as well as he said he will visit her every two weekends? You will think that a father would want to be around his newborn as much as possible. Now im by myself taking care of our baby with no help from the father.. How do I manage these feelings

Sorry, I have to disagree with Stephanie. You have absolutely no right at all to make a decision to raise a baby alone if the father wants to be involved. Every two weekends is still a father who wants to be involved in his child's life, just not with you, and he doesn't HAVE to be involved with you. When you break up with a person, you cannot expect 24/7 involvement, that's just not practical. If you do what Stephanie suggests, you are committing parental alienation and risk losing your child altogether, do NOT do it.

Instead, I suggest you file for custody, visitation and child support. Having a legal document in place will make sure everyone involved is protected.

The BEST advice I can give you being a single mother myself to a two and half, almost three year old is to stay strong and stay away from this guy. My sons father was similar but I made a choice early on in my pregnancy that I was going to raise this baby alone because it was better for me to raise the child alone and to meet a wonderful man later on who would adopt my son than to let my sons father come in and out of his life as he pleased being the piece of crape he was and is and letting my son be disappointed by him. If a man can't man up and be a dad 24/7 and most importantly marry the mother he doesn't deserve. He doesn't deserve you and that baby and most women don't think they deserve better when they do. Stay strong and don't let him come around. Find a man who will actually love you and your baby. Being a single mom isn't bad I am glad I'm not married to a douche bag. I would rather be single than unhappily married or married to a jerk. My knight and shinning armor will come!
