I’VE just found out that I’m pregnant. The only man I’ve slept with lately is my mum’s boyfriend. I can’t believe this could happen to me.
I’m 19 and I live with my mum. My partner is 22. He runs his own business and I’ve been seeing him now for a year. I thought the world of him until lately.
I first got suspicious when I found a restaurant receipt on the floor of his flat - a whopping great bill from a posh place outside of town. I confronted my boyfriend and he said he’d been there with a bloke he was hoping would give him some work. So what could I say?
I kept a close eye on him though. As soon as I got the chance I checked on his phone and saw all these texts to his ex. It was clear he was cheating on me and I broke with him immediately.
I drove home in a terrible state and burst out crying as soon as I got in the door. Mum was still at work but her boyfriend came in and asked what was wrong. He’s 36.
He hugged and comforted me. He felt so warm and so nice. Then he kissed me and we made passionate love right there and then in my room.
Since then we’ve been sneaking around and getting together whenever we can. I know it’s wrong but he makes me feel so wanted.
I took a pregnancy test yesterday to put my mind to rest as I was late. I felt ill when I saw the result. I haven’t told anyone yet. I don’t know what to do.
You and your mum’s boyfriend have behaved appallingly. You must stop this affair, obviously, but if you’re going ahead with this pregnancy then your mum has to find out what’s been going on.
I doubt her boyfriend will stick with you and turn out to be a loving father to your child. He’s not that sort of guy - though by law he would have to help support your child financially.
