Unexpected and Uncertain
She's five weeks gone and I'm feeling a massive mixture of happiness and panic, added to a collasal amount of fright.
In Aug 08, I'm going to be a Dad!
I am 29, with a career that means I travel internationally at least 100 nights of the year. Plus I have just started a part time MBA.
She is my girlfriend, 27, and working/studying part time. Our relationship has been rocky in the past, and we've been close to splitting up a few times - always driven by me, if I'm honest - which is why we are not married.
How am I going to learn how to be a Dad? Everything is about to change and I am so scared. What if we continue to have a rocky relationship and that rubs off on the child??
The real problem is that none of my friends have gone through this yet, and I have no-one to speak to apart from my Parents (and hers) who we haven't told yet anyway..
I would love to get in touch with others who are going through this and similar situations right now, or have some wise words for me.. I really need all the help I can get, I am happy, really, but so scared!
