I haven't heard from my son's dad since December 18(eight days after my first ob appointment) should I make an attempt to contact him and fill him in on my due date and how the baby is doing so far......I tried in jan but to no avail.

I don't want anything from him, just trying to give him a chance to be in our son's life.

Nah. He knows you're pregnant. Ignore him until he comes to you

Has anything of yours changed, number, email, facebook? If not then I'd say when or if he's ready he'll contact you.

You don't want child support?

What about when you're on maternity leave?

Do you make that much money that you can be that independent?

Does he know how to contact you?? If he did then he probably would have if he wanted to know. Sorry about your situation it's nice that your trying

Well, if you haven't heard from him in over 4 months, I think it's pretty clear he doesn't want to have anything to do with your pregnancy. You already tried once, and got nowhere. I would just leave it alone. It's not worth the aggravation. He knows you're pregnant, if he wants to be a part of this child's life, I'm assuming he knows where to find you.

If he knows you're pregnant, I would just leave it alone. He would be in your son's life if he wanted, and it doesn't sound like he does. You can't force someone to be a parent. Sorry.

If it will do something for you emotionally or something, go ahead. But I would probably leave it alone if I was through with him; he's aware of the baby and should contact you if it is important to him.

I'm sorry if that sounded harsh.

Has your number and address changed? Are you guys not speaking because you did or said something completely screwed up last time? No? Then no, just focus on you and baby, he's showing you how he feels. If you need to make amends or you fell off the planet and changed your contact information, then yes, try.

He doesn't care and sadly you can't make him. Just keep going forward. His loss.
