If you are named as the father--you sign an Affidavit of Paternity, then she has to notice you and file a Petition to Terminate Parental Rights.
If you are really interested in wanting to keep and raise this baby, then the best thing for you to do would be to file a Complaint for Custody with the family court. The court will not rule on your case until after the baby is born, but this way, you are preserving your rights and putting your ex and the Court on notice that you have an interest in this baby that you are asserting.
