Yikes, that's a really unfortunate situation! I'm sorry to hear that. I wouldn't lie on the BC if I were you (the child should know who it's biological father is, and he should help raise it if it's his), and if you and your husband were getting a divorce to begin with, I don't think bearing another man's child is a good reason to get back together - although, you know your relationship much better than I do!

I guess I'll keep an eye out on this in the coming months. Mines only 3 months and I can't seem to not be around him 24/7 :
