Today, I should be spending my birthday with my boyfriend of 8 months. Instead he's visiting his ex, who's pregnant with a baby that "may or may not be" his. FML.

Well he might not have cheated on you - mathematically speaking.

You do realize that pregnancies last 9 months right

This is why you should save sex for marriage.

Sorry to hear that OP...

What's his name OP? I might know him..

@38 Hey yeah good idea! I was in Georgia once I probably know him to.. Did you think even think that through before typing it?

Look on the bright side at least he's shown he'd be there if she were pregnant.

If his your boyfriend of 8 months, then either it must be a realllyyy long pregnancy or you got a big problem on your hands OP. Good luck with everything. Hope it all works out for you.

It is a little distressing to realize that a baby is on the way and he's in the shadows about whether he should try or not.

I don't know what species you think OP is..

Pregnancy lasts up to 10 months. 10-8=2 dummy. Also to keep all of the 9 month long comments that will follow, you go into your 9th month of pregnancy and then have the baby. Again 404=10. If you make it to 40 weeks pregnant you are pregnant for 10 months.

#35 Actually, you are wrong. 4 weeks is not 1 month. Since a week is 7 days, 4 weeks is 28 days and every month except February is either 30 or 31 days. So a month is actually a little bit longer than 4 weeks and hence 9 months would actually be about 40 weeks.

If only months were exactly 4 weeks long 35. Of course, then there would be 13 months in a year with a spare day and a bit left over...

Humans actually are pregnant for 10 montha, not 9..

I realize that a month is not exactly 4 weeks but you are pregnant for closer to 10 months. They tell you in pregnancy books and when you go to a prenatal doctor. Just saying

Yes the doctors' timelines are a bit closer to 10 than 9, even in calendar months. But they all start from day one of your cycle ie the last period. And you only get pregnant about two weeks after that (if pregnancy = fertilization) or longer (if pregnancy = implantation). So actually the real figure (biologically) is still closer to 9. Knowledge!

40 weeks is 10 months, plus I work mother infant at a hospital.

^^ This coming from someone who is listed to live at "Whale's Vajayjay".

She better be 8 months and some days pregnant or OP might have to kick some ass.

That sucks op. Hope it works out.

So he may or may not still be your boyfriend in a month or two

More like in an hour or two

Didn't say she was in labor though, just that he was visiting with her.

Not necessarily just because he is trying to be involved in the child's life doesn't mean he has to leave his current girlfriend. It would be better for the kid if the parents stay apart if the marriage would be broken. I know that I wish MY parents hadn't gotten back together just for a child made things 100x worse for me and then.

I'm sorry about that, OP. You deserve better. Hopefully, he's an ex now. Please try to enjoy the rest of your day. Happy birthday.

How do you know OP deserve better?

Because if a guy spends his current girlfriend's birthday with his ex who is pregnant with a child who could possibly be his, then he's just low. OP deserves someone that actually cares about her and will be faithful.

I think 23 means OP could be an extremely terrible person who is just all around awful, and got exactly what she deserves.

Except for that if it is his baby op has zero say in anything to do with that baby. If she can't handle that he might have a kid then she is childish and should find someone else. Cannot expect to be more important than his kid

We don't know what the story is. Maybe there was a reason that the boyfriend needed to be there e.g an important appointment with the gynaecologist or they needed to buy baby stuff and that was the only day they could do it (hopefully OPs boyfriend impregnated this woman before he started dating OP which means she could be due any day now). This needs a follow up.

I agree with you because after all, isnt a birthday the celebration of your birth?

#36: It's not necessarily about being childish for "feeling less important" than the kid; it's more about what OP wanted out of the relationship in the first place. What if she didn't want children and went into the relationship with her boyfriend, acknowledging him of this beforehand? In that case, having that guy's kid around wouldn't allow her to get what she's looking for in a relationship, unless she stuck around with him just because she loved him and was willing to put up with the child on weekends and holidays. I know that if I ever met a guy with an infant child or otherwise from a previous relationship, I couldn't marry him or even consider dating him, regardless of how great he is, because having children is simply not one of my life goals. I'd wish him the best in his parental endeavors, but it's not a bullet-point of what I'm looking for in an intimate relationship. But maybe the real FML here is just that OP didn't have her boyfriend around to celebrate her birthday, I don't know.

Well you may or may not be his girlfriend anymore.

Well he may or May not be your boyfriend, I hope you choose not OP

Happy birthday!
