How would you date while pregnant? I didn't think that would even be an option. Not that I want to, I won't be able to trust another man for a long time. But was that "topic" caught my eye.

You would be surprised at how many women date men who are not the father of their child while pregnant.  It's actually pretty common.

I am dealing with a break-up now. I have been the guy well I should say boy for 5 years and we have a two year old son, I am also 8 weeks pregnant. Right before we found out I was pregnant I discovered a recent business trip was not business he in fact flew himself to a different location and spent 5 days with another women.

I did confront him. He denied it all at first and now he only says they went on a group dinner and she stayed in his hotel room. He is still lying which makes it worse. I know what happened the girl told me everything cause she is hurt by him too. I posted a discussion that goes into further detail looking for advice, but have only 1 reply. Oh and she is a co-worker in a different city

If you plan on doing it alone, don't put the father on the birth certificate. You don't collect child support but it also means that it's more difficult for him to come in and out of the child's life.
