Well, I suppose, look at it from his point of view. He thought he was having a light hearted romance and is faced with a child. I know he’s as responsible as you are and he clearly didn’t use a condom but it must be a bit of a shock.

Getting cross won’t help. I’d stay calm, give him time to get his head round it. You can claim support through the CMS when the baby arrives so perhaps concentrate for now on saving for your maternity leave. Think about logistics like childcare and housing. Is your employer decent? If not, take out legal insurance before you tell your HR team.

The more prepared you are, the calmer you will feel. Talk to your family.  Get them on board first.

Congratulations & good luck x
