My ex and I broke up two weeks before I discovered I was pregnant. I called him and told him and he immediately asked me what am I going to do? Am I going to keep it? Naturally I was upset and said I would keep it and do this all on my own. He finally came around and wanted to talk face to face regarding the situation. He told me that he wanted to be there for me, we could work through this together. I left the meeting with him feeling a little relieved but at the same time still holding a grudge against him from our breakup. I told my friends about out meeting, and they all told me to be nice to him... That he is trying and give it time. The next four weeks was me texting him pictures and updates like, "our baby is the size of a blueberry this week!" I actually started to get very excited with the idea of him being around. He would tell out mutual friends how happy he is about it, he will make an excellent dad! My problem however... These last four weeks, when I text him it is very vague responses or I get zero response at all from him. He has never told me what he tells our friends about the excitement he feels. He asks me
How I am feeling, but then has zero response
After I tell him. I keep trying and trying, but am
Tired of catering to him and trying to include him in a life that I feel he doesn't want to be a part of. My family told me to ignore him and let him come
Around, but like all of you feel... It's lonely. And how do I deal with the fact that he will always give this baby an amazing amount of attention and care for them, but never truly care about me? That seems to bother me the most and I have no idea how to him or any of these actions at all. I am only 8 weeks along and this is my first child. Please help!
