Thank you for the advice. It is not making things easier, knowing that a woman never forget that...

We are going to the mandatory consulting in a few hours but we had a long talk yesterday night and it was the hardest so far.

Her reasoning for having the child is purely emotional "Oh, I feel like having a baby when I see all those other babies". No rational thinking about what impact it will have on both of our lives, whatsoever. Is that normal?

Let's say I don't think you're going to have any luck trying to logic her out of where she stands. If anything, she might dig in harder against that approach.

The logic of child rearing is incomprehensible, and has only gotten less so for me since I had a kid. Logic is one tool in the human toolbox, but it's one among many. Sometimes logic is overrated.
