Think she's pregnant?

If your girlfriend is pregnant, it's important to understand that it affects you just as much as it does her. You may not know what to do in such a situation, but at this point, you will have a significant impact on the choices your girlfriend makes. This is an extremely difficult time for her, and she will need you more than you know. Here is some advice:

  • Listen
    Your girlfriend is pregnant with your child. Listening to her concerns is important, as the decisions she make affect you very similarly.
  • Talk
    Because the situation involves both of you, it's important that share your own thoughts and concerns with her. This is a new situation for you, and your best bet is to share with people who care for you.
  • Be Honest
    It's possible that you and your girlfriend are not in agreement with the decision she will make with her pregnancy. After listening to her, it's important to be honest with her, so she doesn't feel overwhelmed.
  • Stay With Her
    Some men feel that their girlfriend's pregnancy doesn't affect them, and that they can simply leave the situation. Not only does leaving her make it harder for her, it also can be hard on you in the future, because if she has the baby, you are still the father. You can't change the situation you're in, so make the most of it.
