I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for about a year and a half. I love him a lot and we are expecting out first child due, Dec 7th. He got arrested 2 days ago with 3 misdemeanors and 2 felonies (both are expected to be dropped to misdemeanors). But there is no chance for bail since I got fired from my job a month ago. So, in the last two days, I have had to move back to my parents house. I know they are trying to help me as best as they can, but I feel like they don't really want me here. They have a lot of rules and make me feel like I'm 13 again. My boyfriend is worried he won't be out of jail in time to see his son be born. All of this is stressing me out and I don't know how to handle it... what can I do to make it easier??? ):

I am going to give you some tough love here. Please don't take it as bashing. I am basing it off of what you have told us. I would first start by looking for another job. I know that you are pregnant, but I have known of women getting hired when they were 7, 8, even 9 months along. Second, I think it may be time to reevaluate your relationship. Is this the first time he has been in jail? What are his charges? If this is an ongoing thing, do you really want to raise your child in that type of environment? Third, you are going to have to except that you have got yourself in this situation, and your parents may not be too pleased with your decisions. For now, the only thing you can do is to follow their rules and make a plan to better yourself so that you can support yourself and your new baby.
