I am 5 months pregnant. I was involved with BD for a couple of months before I got pregnant and the minute I told him he was gone. As hard as it was I accepted that I would be a single parent. A month or so later he contacts me apologizing for the way he reacted and said he needed time to think about things. Since then I've seen him once he texts me once or twice a month to "check in" he's never been to a dr appointment made a big deal about being at my last sono but never showed up and his excuse was because he was in the middle of doing a tattoo and couldn't ask the person to leave WHATEVER. As disappointed as I am I always do my part in letting him know when my appointments are, I sent him pictures of the baby, but I feel like he just doesn't care!!! Last week I found out I was having a baby girl and since he missed the appointment I texted him and now he thinks he should be able to name the baby after his mother whom I've never met btw. I am so frustrated I want my daughter to know her father but I don't think it's fair to keep him around if he's going to be a half ass dad. He has 5 other kids with 4 woman and he's a half ass father to them to. I don't know what to do he doesn't have his shit together but I'm trying my best to be reasonable because I know we all go thru hard times but I think he takes advantage of my kindness. My supporters think I should cut my ties now before the baby comes and accept that I will have to be mom and dad. I want my daughter to know her father but not if its going to be when it's convenient for him and at this point he pops in "text" every other week if I get lucky. Thoughts here please are my people right or should I wait and see how he acts when baby gets here?
