I told my ex I'm PREGNANT with his baby

So I posted a few weeks ago that I was debating telling my ex that we would becoming parents again to a second child. Well since then I have actually spoke to my ex in person and told him that I was pregnant and that it was his child. I wasn't sure what reaction I would get from him but surprisingly enough he was complete "gentleman" about it,  he asked if I needed anything from him that he was willing to make arrangements so I'm comfortable and well taken care of while I'm pregnant and the next morning I received a call from my divorce lawyer that my husband lawyer wanted to change our child support arrangement to include the new child , as well as changes to his will.  Financially he is a wonderful man and I'm thankful for that but I'm more thankful for his new found concern over my health and well being since my last pregnancy was extremely difficult, he has actually come to one appointment and has actually seen our son twice in the past month which is a lot for him since our son rarely see him once every three to four months, I really hope that he can keep this up.

This weekend we plan on having lunch with my family to tell them together we are expecting another child and dinner plans with his family to announce that we are expecting at this point I have a belly poking out so it's a great time to share before speculation starts roaming around.


Thank you again to those of  you that give me wonderful advice and didn't judge me, I look forward to sharing more in this group.

I'm due at the end of May , so I'm happy about not needing to be all hot and pregnant in the summer. And thanks I really do hope he keeps it up as well so far it's been a month and his step up a lot more then I expected him too. He is trying to even come to an ultrasound appointment I have tomorrow, so we will see. I will keep you guys updated.
