It’s a ‘huge’ decision,… wise or not… you guys must make sure if you are really up for that kind of responsibility.

If seen legally, since you guys are not married, the child would be labelled as illegitimate. Plus, keeping a future possibility in mind, if the guy walks away from the relationship, then you end up being an unmarried, single mother which is a huge responsibility in itself. Indian society already frowns upon live-ins, having a child out of wedlock is still a huge issue, single mothers do not enjoy many privileges legally. Before taking any such decision, go through pros and cons of the issue.
