I recently ended things with the father of the baby I'm pregnant with. He says he will be involved but he doesn't ask/say ANYTHING about the baby. I just feel like he doesn't even care at all. All he can talk about is how he wants us back together. It is so frustrating...he is living out of a motel right now and working a minimum wage job after getting fired from his last one because he has such a bad attitude problem. Not to mention no car or license and doesn't care to get either one. I sure know how to pick them.



I just want to know if he is actually going to be there for his baby or not and while he says he wants to be, I just have this feeling that he's just going to blow it off. :/

"A women becomes a mother when she's pregnant. A man becomes a father when he holds his child"



This is true in most cases. I hope he comes around!

no one can tell you if he will be there or not.. Many men don't feel like father's until the baby is there though. What would he ask now? the baby is inside you.

Very true, I guess I just need to wait and see what happens. I'm not sure what he would ask except little things like how an appointment went or how the baby is doing, stuff like that.
