What are you going to do with the baby if you go into the airforce? Realistically? You need to sit down and work out if you can actually do this. What is the likelihood of having to spend months away form your child? Is the baby daddy the same daddy as that of the 2 year old? How long have you been in your relationship? Do you have any family support? He says you cannot provide for the baby....so what right do you have to bring a baby into this world that you cannot provide for? Would adoption be a consideration?

I know, lots of questions, but they are all very valid ones that you need to ask yourself. It sounds to me like you can't raise this baby. Not if you want the baby to have a good life or parents who are around. This is a really important consideration. I know a lot of people will say "ok, so you can't afford it, big deal", but it actually IS a big deal if we are talking roof over head, food in mouth AND parental nurture.
