No healthy food for baby...

I'm 17 weeks pregnant today, up until this point things were okay. But now, with my Hubby working and going to school it's getting hard. We also have a toddler whichis our main focus (he gets the foods he needs). Now we're not making enough to buy healthy foods for this pregnancy. What should I do? Is there any help out there near Pittsburgh, Pa?

  • With WIC, I also get farmers market coupons that enable me to buy veggies & fruits. Don't you?

  • If you qualify for EBT, it's an amazing program. I just got accepted into it, and it's like a godsend for my boyfriend and me. We can now afford to buy the healthy foods that I should've been eating my entire pregnancy :P
