A mom here on cafemom told me..

That once she asked for help from other moms and they helped her, now i know its a long shot but my husband and i were doing fairly good. we had no savings but we paid our bills and took care of what needed to be taken care of. on our anniversary this year we became pregnant with baby #3, and now we are struggling. My husband lost his job, and my BP is high so im on bed rest. Im stuck. My husband is going to a carseat class to get a carseat, but we dont have blankets, or clothes, or a crib. I know asking for a crib is probably not going to happen, but if anyone has boy blankets or clothes that they could send to us, please let us know.

No bashing please, this is one of my last resorts i feel like a horrible person.

  • do you belong to a church or ward? you could call around and find help i am sure. craigs list also has a free section. never go alone though.
    try yoga or meditation for your bp too, it can't hurt!
    good luck!

  • Go to your local churches and ask for help. They usually have funds or groups that would be glad to help out.

  • Call the salvation army, when I was working there they had a program where they would give vouchers for things that people needed, household items, clothing, bedding, you name it, and then you go to the store and choose the items you want. Good luck, I'm sorry I can't do more and I really hope you get everything you need.
