I'm married almost 4 years now and my dad gives me crap about everything. I never really saw him all the time his mom had custody of me and he lived 3hours away, but when I was 17 he got custody of me by default I was removed from her and had nowhere else to go. any way when I was 18 I became pregnant with dd. I was already living with my bf (now my husband) even though it was a fairly new relationship. My father said every horrible thing about my bf and how he would leave me and cheat on me and have nothing to do with my child and I and he told me well your getting an abortion right? I was so upset that the next time I got pregnant I was afraid to say something but thought maybe it would be different because in between my 2 my younger brother had also gotten his gf pregnant and he got married before graduating HS! Yet again he just had negative comments.
I have a lot of trouble with birth control. I can't have certain hormones and even when one another type like and iud I became preggers again. Now I'm pregnate a fourth time 13weeks already I just don't know how to tell him and not fight. I recently lost my mother and feel like my father is pushing himself away from my family. (a few moths ago he called to yell at me for getting a lizard for a pet for our children)
Anyway how do i tell him something he's just gonna blow up about yet keep my cool as to not "lose" him in my life?

I wouldn't bother telling him. Do you see him on a regular basis? If you do and when he notices your pregnant, and asks why you didn't tell him, just tell him you really didn't feel like arguing with him. As long as you and your husband can take care of your family without your dad's help...it REALLY shouldn't matter to him. I can't believe people who THINK they have the right to tell someone how many children they should have. Good Luck and I hope you feel better.
