Needing advice, mother of 11mo old, accidently pregnant again.. no money.. help

I'm not sure what to do.. We don't have enough money to raise another child. My husband and I barely have enough money to pay for food for our first baby. I live in oregon and am currently on WIC, but that's sometimes isnt enough. I'm scared, I don't know what to do. Any and all advice is greatly, greatly appreciated.

  • I was that same person almost 7 years ago, hang in there. I WAS BLESS WITH A HANDSOME, CUDDLY BABY BOY. WE MADE IT..

    There should be help around you for food, and clothing. Pantry's or church.

    Will you eventually work? I now work, my kids go to school, and they are well fed, and happy. We are looking to buy a home this year, and I am going back to school-while I work.

  • I don't know how I can work. I don't have any help with my baby. My husband works full time and isnt willing to help out when he gets home.

  • you'll make it work somehow. talk to the people at wic and ask to get a social worker to find out about welfare, etc.
