You’re Girlfriend is Pregnant – Now What?

Your girlfriend tells you she’s pregnant. This wasn’t in your plans. You’re angry and frustrated. You don’t know what to do. You’ve got racing thoughts about yourself, your girlfriend, and the life that’s now growing inside her. Questioning if you’re ready to be a father. Questioning if you want to be connected to your girlfriend for the rest of your life because of this child.
You’re scared. What do you do?
Stop. Listen to her. Talk about it. Stay calm. There is time to process this. There’s no reason to make any rash decisions.
First, it’s important to gather all the facts. Get the pregnancy verified and make sure there is a viable pregnancy by obtaining an ultrasound. Pregnancies are extremely volatile, so it’s imperative that you know it is growing in the right location, there is a detectable heartbeat, it’s growing within the proper time frame, and she hasn’t miscarried or is possibly in the process of miscarrying. Then, seek wise counsel so you can make the best decision for both of you.
It’s normal to be angry, frustrated, and scared. But know you’re not alone.
We would love to help you in any way you will allow. At Cross Roads we can verify pregnancies as well as perform early ultrasounds to confirm a viable pregnancy. We can also offer lay counseling and emotional support. Don’t hesitate to reach out.
