My ex-boyfriend & I HAD a great relationship. We're both in our 30's, w/successful careers. We have no children. This was an unplanned pregnancy, but we chose to keep the baby.
During my 4th mo., he "Changed His Mind". He comes from a very religious family & stated he was concerned about pregnancy out of wed-lock & opted to leave us. He never told his parents about the pregnancy.
I took on ALL the responsibilities. There's been very little contact between us. He never "came around". I'm now due in ONE week.
I'd love for my child to know her other family & heritage. I'm NOT seeking any money nor to bad-mouth him or rekindle. It's their First Grandchild & I believe they have a right to know about the upcoming birth. They may or may not want to be a part of this child's life.
I'm torn. Should I tell them? If yes, HOW? NOW... A week before my due date? Or just show up to their house with the baby???

You have to call and tell him first. It would be best to tell them together. Make sure he is on the birth certificate if noting else. At least his child would have something proving he/she has a father. Who knows maybe after the birth he will step up and be a real man and father the child he help to create.
