I am sorry that you feel that you were pressured into the adoption. If you want to try to revoke the adoption you need to act quickly. Below I will link references to legal assistance so that you can contact them ASAP.
Generally, once the consent and authorization is signed it can not be revoked. BUT you make be able to take steps to challenge your agreement to the adoption based on undue influence and duress. The other issue is that BOTH parents need to consent to the adoption. If the father did not he can challenge the adoption. I know you stated that he did not want to come forward, but if he wants to challenge the adoption he will need to IF you can not prevail on the duress issue.
Here are links to the law and other resources regarding the adoption:
