He said he is not ready to be a dad.

Found out I was pregnant a few weeks ago and I'm nearly 3 months now.
When I told my partner at the time he was happy, then he said that he needed time to get used to the idea of been a dad.
Now he has said that he is not ready to be a dad but he would see it.
His family have been making it really hard for me to talk to him about it because they are telling him to get rid of me. This is my 1st baby and I really don't know what to do :(

It is very tough for you to see your partner change his mind like this, and to feel that his family has turned him against you. At 3 months I can imagine you had started getting excited, planning your future, and probably had your first scan.
I wonder how you feel about doing this by yourself? Will your partner still support you and perhaps change his mind if you carry on and have the baby. I think you need some support while there is so much uncertainty, and a chance to talk this through with someone who is not involved. Please contact the national helpline 0300 4000 999, or Online advisor to speak to someone who can help you.
