I'm 17 , My boyfriend and I have been on and off since 2OO7. When i found out i was pregnant (Febuary 2O11) , we were so scared like what are we going to do. ABORTION & ADOPTION ? Were completely out of the picture, so i guess that brings us to now. I'm 8 months pregnant and before i got pregnant we barely had problem, a few trust issues here and the but its was never that bad. Now its like he's always hiding something. We broke up like last month because he was talking and texting to other girls behind my back. He said he "stopped" but it hard to believe and on top of that its like were still together he's always sleeping at my house with me . We talk all day and we do a bunch of stuff together still. He says he don't talk to other girl anymore but i feel like he is. I just want it all to go away and for us to be together and be a family with our baby. But whenever i try to talk about it , it seems like were not getting anywhere. WHAT DO I DO ?

Relationship Falling + Expecting A Baby = You are going to be a single parent.

Face it, your guy isn't mature enough to want to "build a family." If you refuse to place the child for adoption, then you need to figure out how you are going to manage with a baby. You may need to still finish school (does your school have daycare for babies of students?). You will need to find a job because diapers are not cheap. You may need to find a place to live, depending on how your parents feel. You need to decide whether to put your guy's name on the birth certificate (he can claim custody or partial custody but may have to pay child support) or not (no child support but he can't take the baby away).

He's not going to stop being interested in other girls, especially once the baby comes and you are tired and busy. Your dream of a family is just that, a dream.

Kick him out and grow up.
