OK (cracks knuckles):

I would put 'cut to'---the stuff about a trip to the doctor. It's important (per Sheila Davis, whose books are very helpful) to make your timeline clear to the listener.

Also, 'my life is a little wild' doesn't seem quite the emotion a person perhaps ambivalent but loving of an unwanted child would express. Maybe it rhymes, but it needs to be in keeping with the story. I think by 'wild' you were trying to say that the person isn't ready to settle down to kids and marriage, but you have to make that clear.

Edit/rewrite some more. You're on the right track...
