    That's very true! I've gotten past that bit now, I'm just very excited. I'm actually busting to tell DS but I know I'll have to wait a bit longer haha

    But yeah, apart from that I'm a single mum to two kids. Pregnancy was an emotional time being alone, but I am doing great now. I work full time and financially we're doing well

    Congrats!

    Sorry to dampen the moods here...
    Though you might want to consider getting some legal advice about the parental rights of the bio-father.... just incase this one tries to come back and become dominating towards "having the rights" to see the bubs.
    If the courts are shown that this person is not suitable to be a parent theb they may be able to give another person of your choice a parental order.
    The courts usually look out for the childs best interest.
    Is there anyone that you can definetely leave the kids with incase something happens to you? Or decide for you (if you are not able to decide at the time) if your child has an operation or not.
    I am looking into this myself, because I would not want my kids to end up in their bio fathers hands because I havent got my fiance a parental order. He is their father after all and certainly better for the kids.
    Just thought I would let you know about the dangers regarding these strange boys.

    OP - I was single while pregnant after after breaking up with exH so I'm not sure about things in regards to FOB. But I'm sure you'll be fine!! It'll be lovely for your little man to have a sibling too.

    Well I was thinking of just not telling him, he boasted to a friend of mine that he had a baby and the mother was 'drug fu***d' but he didn't 'give a sh*t' as it was no longer his problem. I just don't want someone like that around my child - yes I know I should've thought about that before getting myself into this situation but I didn't plan on sleeping with him nor fall pregnant

    Hey its okay, I wasnt trying to brag about making those decisions that I have made myself. Really.. I was just concerned about this man wanting to see the baby after its born. Yes its tricky I know. Life doesnt always pan out the way that yoj always think it will. But yeah, ask for some legal advice, it could be just the case of not putting his name in the birth certificate. Not sure if its really ethical but if they have no interest in the childs wellbeing then I believe that they shouldnt be allowed to have an rights. Just my opinion though. I am no family courts lawyer. Wish I was though....

    You never know if this man or kid... could have a mid life crisis later on in his life and demand full rights, and visitations etc. Its best to get it all the facts about what you can do to be in full control in this situation. :thumbup:
