I can't make my ex fall in love with me but I can choose to pick up my bruised ego and move on.
I am excited about the baby and have been starting to enjoy my pregnancy which has changed my attitude. They're are men out there that will love and care for us and our children in the future.
So when I told him he was going to be a father after the birth control failed, his response was not completely unexpected: "You're on your own," he said, simply. Though his decision to leave has certainly been difficult for me to digest, I don't view it as tragic.More than anything, it was clear that we needed to TALK about this stuff: that pregnancy and parenthood is not a one-size-fits-all deal.Almost as soon as I hit "publish," the emails began.I am 20 weeks and am just starting to get used to the idea that I am single and pregnant.I think the hardest thing for me to deal with is the fact my ex left which I guess he was planning on doing anyway. They’d come to every doctor appointment and had even gone so far as to help me choose my donor, though I was technically having a baby alone—I would be a single mom by choice. Starving already, I was off to enjoy a triumphant falafel. The first thing every guy wanted to know about was my relationship with the baby daddy. I found myself endlessly explaining my choices to guys I didn’t even want to go out with anymore. He called me sneaky for not disclosing my pregnancy right away.
