Well my situation was fine for a while...But the father of the child(Mike) has not spoken to me, has ignored my calls and neglected to return them, along with avoiding coming over to see me in person when I'm up in the town he lives in at a mutual friends house on the weekends. This has gone on for almost 2 weeks now...I haven't told anyone in my family that I'm pregnant(other than my mom and she didn't find out til a few days ago). Considering I'm not married, not in a long term relationship and now Mike isn't even speaking to me, I'm scared to tell the rest of my family the news. Because honestly, to them, it's not probably going to be great news to get excited about. My brother and his wife are pregnant with their second kid, and everyone is excited, because he is married and settled down. I'm the youngest child out of 3, pregnant, going to college(straight A's last term) and as of right now looking to be a single parent since Mike is nowhere to be seen...My dad and I have finally gotten to the point where we can start rebuilding our father/daughter relationship(as of last year) after how shitty he treated me from a child onward and we are doing really well now...He is proud of my grade accomplishments since I'm the first in the family that is planning to finish college and who has done that well in school. I have no clue how to tell him I'm pregnant and that Mike isn't going to probably be around to support me...My brother won't exactly be easy to tell either since he is my big bro, he gets protective, but also acts like a dad sometimes and shows disappointment. I can already hear them saying how irresponsible I am and how dissapointed they are in my poor judgement. My mom tried to tell me it will be better once the news is out, but I'm not totally sure, and I gave her an example of her reaction, worried...not excited. And her reaction is mild compared to what my dad's will be I'm sure...mainly because my mom and I are very close. He hasn't exactly made it comfortable to tell him either since he has mentioned many a time that I'm not allowed to have babies yet, or how proud he is that unlike my friends getting knocked up in their teens..I have mangaged not to. I know I'm 23 years old, but I don't like the thought of not only having the father of my child not being there to support me, but part of my family as well...But I suppose they will have to find out at some point. I don't want to write Mike totally off yet, but from the looks of things...I have to assume the worse and maybe be pleasantly surprised if he happens to pull his head out of his ass...for someone who is 31 years old with 2 kids already, he sure as hell doesn't act like it! I'm sorry I threw this rant out there, I'm just at a loss right now...and quite frankly, I'm sick of crying/being frustrated/confused about it. <----That about sums up how I feel.
