  • I'm right there with ya girl..I'm pregnant very stressed just like you ....financially, emotionally, mom passed away....the baby's dad is a jerk dad cries alot ...we don't have alot of brother lives here too and his baby is due soon...and my dad and brother are layed off and I'm the only working one... just hang in there and know you are not doctors told me you can't label or measure can't forget about yourself ....i mean your number one is obviously your baby but remember you gotta be strong because that baby needs you more than anything...thats what i try to think about ...i worry about alot of the same things you do.

  • yes i am with all of you. i stress alot because the baby's dad of mine recently went to jail and im 14 weeks pregnant now. He want to have doubts about my child being his child when i no that i had sex with him only around ovulation time. i also work full time and go thru stages on how will i raise this child by my self.., but in the end everything will be alright
