  • No it was something we both wanted. It's a bad idea if your thinking about it because the first reply is right. Alot of men will leave. Just wait until your settled down and married before you have children. For all you know this guy might not work out or worse...Leave when you get pregnant. Wait until it's something both you and your spouse want.

  • No, I never thought of doing this to keep a guy. Call me traditional, but I always wanted to be married first and have that dream family. (still didn't happen that way either though!).

    I do know some women that have tried that and it ALWAYS ends badly!

  • I had sex with the guy to keep him, he still left and I ended up pregnant (not on purpose).

  • My BFF did this with her EX. No it doesn't work, all she got is raising a son on her own, he even signed away his rights so his son doesn't see him. If a relationship is in trouble bringing a baby isn't the answer. Babies are a strain on a lot of good relationships much less on bad ones.

  • I did not try to get pregnant on purpose, but my SO's family has accused me of it. We had broken up for a small period, and then decided to give our relationship another chance. I got pregnant about a week or so after we got back together. I was on birth control. You know it really isn't any of their damn business anyways. They can think what they like.
