I'm 31 and about 6 weeks pregnant

I'm 31 and about 6 weeks pregnant but I'm not sure who the father is and I'm not sure what to do.
My head has been in a mess since I found out on Xmas day.
I've been with my partner for 4 years, been trying for a baby for 2 years and had no luck. My doctor told me it was time to do fertility tests to see if there was a problem.
I'm ashamed to say I got very drunk one night and had unprotected sex with a friend, whilst on the last day of my period. So now I'm unsure to who's it could be. I have a long term medical condition and as I am not getting any younger, and it's taken me this long to conceive I'm thinking I don't want an abortion. So this week I'm thinking of confessing all to my partner.

Editor's Comment

An agonising situation but I do think that you are wise in deciding to tell your long term partner. Hopefully the baby is his and you have managed to conceive in the end, but if there is a doubt it's better to face it now unless you plan never to doubt that the baby is his. If you would like to talk this over and get some support please contact the national helpline 0300 4000 999, or the online advisor for unplanned pregnancy support.
