  • Tell him now, it might give him something to look forward to. My hubby didn't want kids right away, but 5 months into dating...yeah baby ready or not. He absolutely adores our son now, and baby number 2 is on the way. Sometimes people don't know what they want till they have it.

  • Wait until you're about four/five months along and all has been ruled a-okay by your physician. Then tell him, he'll have time to digest it and deal. Good luck!

  • If it were me, I would tell him asap. He definetly has time to think. Hopefully after being in, and away from you, he will adore the idea of starting a family

  • Well it is up to you if you want to tell him but one way or another i am pretty sure he will find out sometime. I believe that it would be in your best interest to tell him.

  • As long as he isn't in prison for anything he did to you, I would tell him now. Maybe he will put forth extra effort to get out earlier. Good luck

  • He is in prison? WHY?
    And do you want him to know that he is the father of your baby? I would run and hide and never see him again. Who wants an Ex-Con for a Dad? SOrry but that is so wrong.
    Give your child a positive start in life---with YOU as a Mom and you alone. Really.
    Good luck !
