What are pros and cons of telling the father
I'm about 12 weeks pregnant and have no idea what to do and I'm generally scared about this situation. Im Just going from high school on June 22nd next Friday. Then I haven't decided what I'm doing after.

Pros: abortions are hard on your body and can even impact future fertility (childbirth obviously being hard on your body too).
Adopting the child to a family is an option but is a surprisingly hard thing to do emotionally.
You get to bring a new person into the world.
Baby daddy could pull through and really be helpful for you.
If you keep it its one hell of a commitment.
Baby daddy could freak out before he comes round, some dont cone round.
I 100% would tell him, its his kid too after all though to me you get final say. If it was me Id be pretty upset if I found out years later and likely wouldn't be able to trust you again.

I think what your doing is right! The father does deserve to know. And i admire you for not leaning towards abortion its really something that you and the father should discuss but adoption is always on the table even if itll be hard. OR if you are up to it and it will make life a little harder and you'll have to work hard you can keep the baby and find an amazing guy down the road
