My boyfriend of two years has ignored me most of my pregnancy, please help! We have been on and off for two years. I ended up moving an hour away from him and we eventually decided to call it quits. Well .. Until I found out I was pregnant! He freaked out didn't want me to have it. Offered me money to get an abortion. I am 28 and he is 32. He is religious we r unmarried... Not that it matters to me, but to him it does. He demands paternity.. Which is fine. But he treats me terribly! He's not supportive or loving like I thought he would b, I am 7 mths pregnant, he doesn't want to talk bout n e thing bout a future, the child. He says he is sick of me. That he will b there for the child but I make him crazy. I have tried to understand he is afraid to grow up and all the anxieties of responsibility and commitment, I have been so patient. We fight about everything, I try to talk him through his anger, I try to give him space, everything, his family tries to give him advice, but honestly I think he resents me for having this child against his will. He has no plans to take care of us... Just the child. He is demanding, about names last names, religion, and it angers me off, because he just isn't there for me! Y should I give him this power? And his family annoys me so much, babying him, n telling me to give him space he will come around telling me I should hold to their family traditions as far as names last names baptism. N I feel so pressured and upset with him, because he's just mean, ignoring me for months not giving a crap. And it really hurts. To b alone pregnant when u thought someone loved u. I try giving him the benefit of the doubt because he is scared, or the paternity bothers him. I am just really hurt. Confused, emotional. I dunno what's going to happen and I'm so stressed this whole time and I should b happy and I'm not! I dunno if this point I even want him there for labor because I'm still not speaking with him enough to even go to Lamaze. And I'm not going with n e one else so I cam feel depressed for being single. I don't know if I want n e one in the room. I've been alone this whole time, so y should I give him that joy? Y should I give him choice in name with the way he is to me, I just don't know if he will eventually become that loving guy I once knew before this after the baby is born. I'm torn to pieces over this guy
