  • I am going to guess that this was not a planned pregnancy

    You need to determine if you are emotionally and financially able to raise this child yourself

  • Depending how long he's been in jail, he might just need time to adjust to you being pregnant. Have a talk with him. Ask him if he just needs some space, some understanding, perhaps a break, maybe just he needs to talk and know you are there. Talk to him.

    If you have, give him space, but let him know it cant stay like that forever.

  • Well, your 4 months pregnant and he's been in jail for 3 of those. While he knew, it's a bit more real once he's back in the real world with his pregnant gf. Maybe he's just thinking too much about things and it's stressing him out?

  • Lets all quit making excuses for men and their feelings or lack thereof. I like the first Anon answer. The answer is very clear. Don't turn it into something you "want' it to be. This is his response, loud and clear. Ignoring you means you'll go away, in his mind. This is how weak men operate.

  • Way to go Anon 2:59. That is exactly it. OP, prepare yourself to be a single mommy. Also, is a man who just came out of jail the type of man you want with you while raising a baby?

  • I agree with what the last two ladies said. Forget about him and take care of yourself and the baby.
