I've just found out I’m about 6 weeks pregnant. I haven’t told anyone yet because the baby’s dad is married and he doesn't want to be with me now. I really want to keep the baby but don't want to tell the dad and there’s no way I could keep it a secret because I see him nearly everyday and we work together now and again. I think he would make a great dad but am worried about what he will say. If anyone else is in this position don't worry about it and make a decision you are happy with. That’s what I’m going to do. Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in. I think it’s very important that you know what you really want for this pregnancy because, when others find out, they may put pressure on you to do what they want. If you need support in that, then you can visit your nearest centre, contact the helpline or use Online Advisor. At some point, you will have to talk to the baby’s father about your pregnancy. Many women feel that the future of their pregnancy depends on the level of support the partner is willing to give but, however he responds, it’s important for you to know your own heart and go with the decision you can be at peace with. Our thoughts are with you.
