We split up very recently and he’s already in another relationship and putting it all over Facebook – I’d love some advice on what to do next
I was with my ex-boyfriend since school and the relationship lasted five years all together.
We split up very recently and he’s already in another relationship and putting it all over Facebook.
That’s upsetting enough, but now I have found out that I’m pregnant and don’t know how I can possibly tell him without him kicking off as we’re not on good terms at the moment.
I’d love some advice on what to do next.
So what if he ‘kicks off’?
You didn’t get pregnant on your own and you’d simply be telling him because he’s the father and has a right to know.
Call him up and if he starts yelling, then put the phone down.
It’s up to you then to decide how you move forward with it all.
Don’t tell him in the hope it’ll bring him back because the chances are it won’t.
If you decide to have the baby, then you have to face the fact that you’ll probably end up bringing him or her up on your own.
You’re clearly feeling vulnerable and confused, so don’t deal with it alone.
Confide in your closest friends and family, and get their advice, too.
And see your doctor to get the pregnancy dated and to discuss your options.
There will be plenty of people to support you if your ex won’t.
And please delete him from your Facebook account – you don’t need the added stress of seeing him parading his new girlfriend or venting his feelings in public.
