you made her pregnant . forget your boyish ways and sort out things. if you have unprotected sex. this IS what happens. remember it could be a lot worse. you have to talk . what do you both see happening take in all options . be very quick with what you decide.

I honestly think that's something only you and your girlfriend can figure out for yourselves. We can give all the advice in the world, but it's going to boil down to what both of you think is best for the baby and your relationship.

sort out your differences if you can or else just make things as straight as possible. whatever you are going to decide is going to effect the future of your child..don't just compromise now because she is pregnant..that will create lot of problems for your child in future if you can't adjust later. So just sit down and think in cool mind...

Jerry Springer isn't going to like that!

Yup - nothing works 100% of the time. But, I'm sure your girlfriend and you will make the right decisions on how to proceed. Good luck, Steve - and the world will still be there once this is all sorted out!

all i can say is good luck, and just make sure you always listen to what ever your heart's telling you. people've faced worse.

Seeing as I have a pregnant wife running around somewhere (she's at work, don't read that wrong :) ) all I wanted to add is that it's a beautiful thing! I for one am planning to continue travelling even after having a kid. Consider putting the plan on hold for a while and convince your girlfriend to do the travelling/living in another country thing in a year or two. Too many people think that it's the end of all travelling but I for one hope not!!

First thing I'd do is have her take a paternity test.

If the child is yours, then you must do the right thing and marry her, support her, and make a go of it together. If it's not yours, then enjoy your travels.
