I am currently 17 weeks. I am very confused on wether or not my Child should have my last name or the fathers! Now in my opinion I think it's right to have my child have there fathers last name. But now everyone is telling me that I will have so many problems in the long run if were not together and if the father chooses to be out of the picture. He has a 4 year old daughter who he sees a little bit (by the mothers choice) but his daughter doesn't have his last name. I had already told Him that I wanted our baby to have his last name. But now I'm having second thoughts! What should I do? not too sure if were going to stay together. I'm hoping!

Tell your mother that no matter what you name the child, he/she will still be her grandbaby...and that she needs to quit stressing you out about the "little" things, because, really, this is a little thing!

Well tell them to back off. You are not even at 5 months and you have plenty of time to figure it out. You need to focus on your health and the baby. Names are important, but can wait. Also, tell them it is non of their business, but then you will have to stop asking friends and family for advice if you really don't want to hear it.

Is he going to be a part of your babies lives at all? Honestly you are only 17 weeks along. You have a ways to go and may change your mind several times. You can totally use your last name if he is not involved, and if he becomes involved you can always legally change it down the line. Personally, I would not give my babies last name to the dad if he has little to no involvement. Why would you?
