Well, since you asked...
I'm polyamorous -- meaning I have more than one close, committed relationship at a time. I only came into it within the last year. I suppose what makes it "easy" is that I'm only involved with two people... and they happen to be married to each other. (Thus the "Me, my couple, and one more," line in my signature.)
We didn't really plan on this pregnancy. I was/we were too "Que sera, sera" about such things, and were hoping that she (his wife, my girlfriend) would get pregnant first. Things didn't work out that way.
So, it makes matters a lot more complicated in that none of our parents know of our relationship -- or my pregnancy. I also have no idea how to deal with the little legalities (should his name go on the birth certificate, etc.) and there are very few resources for poly families in this sort of situation.
In my 20+ years, I have never taken the easy route in anything.
Polyamoury is not always easy, and it's not for everybody. But it's worked well for us, and I hope it will continue to go well for the years to come.
