Have your priorities changed since you found out you were expecting?
I've just started my second trimester, and this is my first baby. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I found I that my priorities shifted. For one thing, I wanted to reduce my stress, so I dropped out of college, feeling no guilt about that at all. The baby's dad has his doctorate, so there's already plenty of education to spread around! I also have become more assertive, and less willing to put up with any crap from anyone in my life.
Most notably, I don't care if I'm in a relationship or not anymore. Both the baby's dad and my last boyfriend want to be in a relationship with me, and I could hardly care less, which sounds awful! Maybe if I were under the age of 30, I would care more. I will have an ongoing relationship, of some kind, with the baby's dad, just because he's the baby's dad, and my baby deserves to have him in his/her life. I don't know if I want to be attached in other ways to him, however. I need some more time to think on it.
My last boyfriend doesn't care if I'm pregnant with someone else's child and claims he still loves me and can't stand to have me gone from his life. I don't really care what he thinks anymore. I've told him I only want him as a friend, but he's not hearing me. So I'm just not communicating with him now.
My priority is my baby, and what will be best for him/her. I've yet to hear (even from the baby's dad) that the baby is a priority for him.
Maybe this is the plight of being a single mother, but there is no way that I'm going to have a bunch (or even two) different men in my life wanting my attention when I have a child. Or maybe I am making a mistake by not recognizing my own needs as well. I'm not sure. But I do know that the mother bear in me has woken up!
