  • I'm sooo sorry :( we're syruggling too. Just try and think ofg the long term... being the best mom you can. nothing else matters when your kids are taken care of. try findiing some assistance from family, friends, church... whatever support systems you can find. your not alone, ok?

  • maybe live with friends for ahwile? or if you are engaged does he work? i'm assuming hes the dad, maybe you guys could go ahead and move in together, you do still have to take care of you and your kids even with another baby on the way. maybe talk to your doctor, explain the situation and see if there is any work you can do that wouldn't be harmful to you and the baby. i don't know what else to suggest b/c i've never been there, but i'm sorry you have to deal with it.

  • I am really sorry about your situation and I know how you feel. Where I live we have some people that will pay your utilities if you qualify. I am not sure who it is but it is worth checking into in your area. I hope things will get better for you soon.

  • I'm in the same boat as you, not being able to work=/ It's really hard..I had to move back in with my mom..
    I agree with the PP's..or maybe welfare for the time being? It always sucks being on welfare but you have a family to look after..
    good luck
