Just looking for some friendly/non judgemental advice on dating whilst expecting. I’m 30 years old, have been single for several years, however in January I found out I was expecting following a brief casual few months with an old flame up until the new year. To cut a long story short, when I told him he made it clear that unless I was to have a termination then our friendship was over and he would never have anything to do with me or the baby from that day on… After a lengthy very difficult few weeks I decided I couldn’t go through with something I feel I’d regret forever based on his feelings and decided to go ahead with the pregnancy which he has since had no communication with me since and made it very much clear that it’ll stay that way, however, almost half way through my pregnancy i know I’ve best the best decision ever, i have amazing support around me and I am excited to welcome my baby into our lives.
Dating or meeting someone has not so much as crossed my mind. However, a previous relationship from in my late teens (who I have always remained good friends with), I speak with regular and has recently told me his feeling have never changed and over the past year no matter how hard he’s tried not too but the feelings have become more and he hasn’t been able to get me off his mind. He knows my situation, he’s not just anybody, my family and friends know him but we have just been friends for years… The only thing that is stopping me from giving things ago is the fact that I am pregnant, with another man’s baby and it never crossed my mind the thought of starting a relationship whilst pregnant - to be quite honest, I’m scared, of how I feel about him too but also how I may be judged or whether it is even right to be dating whilst pregnant?
Like i said, id just love some friendly/non judgement advice or talk on similar experiences in pregnancy? X
