Quick AdviceSo you think she might be pregnant?
If your girlfriend is pregnant, you are a father. You have not ruined the rest of your life...but you have changed your life and her life forever...and you have created an opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and maturity.
Here's some quick advice that might benefit you right now:You Should:
Listen. The situation involves more than just you. There are now three lives to think about
Stay Calm. She needs your support now more than ever. She may be carrying the baby, but you are BOTH parents, and regardless of your relationship in the future, that baby needs you too.
Talk about it. Not only with each other, but prepare to talk with parents and others close to the situation. Hiding the news from people who can genuinely help you only increases the stress. Offer to go with her to tell her parents the news.
Be Informed. Get all the information and seek wise counsel so you can make the best decision for you both.
Be Honest. It is normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear. But make sure she knows she's not alone; that you'll be there for her.
You Should Not:
Don't bail. The more you run from this, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.
Don't pressure her. Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. Both of you would do well to work as a team.
Don't forget. You have a very active role in this situation. Listen to input as well as give your thoughts.
