A relationship of one month does not a good recipe for baby make.

Sorry, but you shouldn't even have to ask! Keep your head straight. Finish school. you already have 2 kids, and are single, and you want to add a 3rd to that mix after only dating a guy for a month?

NO!!! LOL...

Back away slowly Jessica! I honestly have a feeling that you actually just want to hear that the decision to say NO is a good one...

I would say no. Just one month with this guy and he wants to have a baby? I would run for the hills. Considering that you also have two other mouths to feed. Also, you and this guy would be stuck together for 18+ years of this 'baby's' life; that is if he doesn't run. Then you'll have three mouths to feed and depending on you to survive. I'm sorry, but I, personally would tell this guy to 'stuff it' and if he keeps pressing for a child. Dump his butt and finish school. Your schooling is much more important for your other two kids than some guy who wants to play 'daddy' with his own kid, who may not even stay with you.

yes i totally understan dthe fact that its only been one month. ive known him for about a year but im not saying this thinking it makes a difference about the fact that he wants to have a baby. i do want to finish school. and yes maybe i just need it to hear that it wasa dumb question to ask because i was about to say yes. but i actually went and i got an IUD wich will last for 5 years. so thank you ladies, even if it was a dumb question to ask i just need it to hear it would be a bad decision...thanks! :)

Boyfriend of one month? Um, no.......
I'm kind of disturbed that a single mother with two children wanting to finish school even needs to ask this question :\
That's if it is even a real question.

You have only been with this guy for one month. How is this even a question? Of course it's too soon.
