My husband and I got married and are expecting our first son in October. He is deployed to Afghanistan and will be there until Next May/June. I moved home to live with my mom at five months pregnant and have been unable to find a job, probably because I am noticably pregnant. (I'm 26 weeks now) my husband wasn't expecting to support me while pregnant and isn't thrilled about it. He has given me about 1000 to pay my bills (which are 450) and to buy things I need, gas, money for the baby, and food. He is giving me about an eighth of his base pay, which doesn't even include housing or other allowances he is given because he is deployed and married. When I bring this up to him, he makes me feel ungrateful for what he has given me and is annoyed that he has to support me before the baby is born. I am starting to worry about how the baby and I are going to survive like this. He is an officer, so I don't qualify for any type of assistance, since its expected he would take care of us. He made a separate bank account for me, so I don't even have access to his pay or any type of money the Air Force gives him. Any advice?!?! Please help!
