  • let the house get dirty.Its not that important. Maybe yuo can teach your two year old the clean up game? Do the bare necessities for house cleaning dishes and laundry let the rest go. Do you have family or friends that can help? As far as the wonter clothes go search yahoo groups for your local freecycle and post an add asking for hand me downs for your kids. I got almost ALL my baby stuff from people on this site looking to donate it to someone. Honestly has probably saved me thousands of dollars. Those are my ideas momma good luck

  • Your SO really needs to get real and understand that you are carrying his CHILD!! He needs to help out and give you a break. Try going to and find your city, people sell clothes for pretty cheap and they're nice. There's lots of stuff on there too. You should find ways to vent now b/c when new baby comes it's only going to get crazier. Maybe join a gym, with free daycare. At least that gives you a few hours break.... something...
