my hubby is getting laid off in late jan, im pregnant and due march 4th, our lease here lets break the lease whenever without any penalties....we are BARELY making it with his job i mean seriously we have like dollars left at the end of the month for extras like toilet paper etc. we are already recieving food stamps and stupid medi cal (california welfare) wont get us approved they're beating around the bush!
my hubby's parents offered to pay a couple bills but i still cant stand the fact that would mean my parents are paying our bills and we would remain on welfare for a long time. i do not want that. my sister has offered us to stay at her home but she is already hosting my mother, mother's hubby, her hubby, her hubby friend, and two kids and they are all frequently fighting very dramatic so i dont want my kids in that situation.
what do i do.......?

Your husband should be looking for a job. There are lots of great tips and support in the job hunting moms group: http://www.cafemom.com/group/jobhuntingmoms
Hopefully, you are doing everything that you can to save money. Collect cloth diapers on freecycle, use cloth napkins and towels instead of paper, cut way back on meat and dairy, eat meals based on dried beans and lentils, etc.
