I think you're gambling really recklessly, in a way that's pretty inconsiderate towards any child you may end up creating.

Are you ready to support a child ALL BY YOURSELF? Financially, practically, emotionally?

Because with a partner who has made clear he doesn't want a kid -- even if he's stupidly having unprotected sex -- the chances of you finding yourself in that situation are pretty darned good.

People are curious about pregnancy. That doesn't make them ready to be parents, or mean they want to be: your partner touching your belly and asking if he's created a pregnancy doesn't say squat about either his readiness or his willingness.

If you feel ready to PARENT -- not just have a baby -- then you feel ready to think about the welfare of a kid, first, not your own wants and needs. And usually, people of that readiness don't gamble with this stuff because they understand the gravity of that.
