bun in the oven? take your buns to your boyfriend first!

Dear V,

I think that I might be pregnant. It’s not like it’s some random person’s baby because I’ve been with my boyfriend for two years. The whole thing was an accident, but I think that I might want to keep the baby. I’m going to be graduating next May. The problem is that my boyfriend and I had decided that if this ever happened, we wouldn’t keep the baby, and I would have an abortion. I don’t know if I feel that way anymore. I haven’t told anyone about this, not even my boyfriend. We haven’t discussed any of our plans for after graduation, and I don’t want to make it seem as if I’m keeping the baby in order to keep him. Our relationship is really good, and I don’t think that I would ever have to do anything like that to keep him with me. I just think that I want to keep the baby.

Baby Blues?

Dear Reader,

A pregnancy is an awfully big deal, in case you’re not aware; a baby links two people together for a lifetime. Before I continue on, are you absolutely sure that you are pregnant? Have you taken more than one test? Have you been to the doctor to confirm your suspicions? Do you have a very trusted friend (your boyfriend!) upon whom you can rely for emotional support? If you only think that you might be pregnant but have yet to take a test, please save yourself the twisted emotional trauma of pondering the hypothetical and get yourself to a drug store.

If you are already 100% sure that there is a bun in the oven, you absolutely owe it to your boyfriend to let him know what’s up. Some might disagree with me, but I think that your boyfriend should have some say as to the outcome of this situation. I am assuming, because there are very few young twenty-something males in this world who have the emotional and financial capabilities to care for a child, that your boyfriend might not agree with your change of heart, and I think that his opinions are as valid as yours are.

Furthermore, you must ponder your varied future circumstances – who will raise the baby? Where will you live with this baby? How will you support yourself and this baby? These are some fairly overwhelming questions to think about, so do yourself a favor, and clue your boyfriend in before you make any rash decisions on your own.

Best of Luck!

V.
