Parents that DON'T help

I am going thru a divorce. I am pregnant and I have three children.
My parents reluctantly let us move in for a while because we had no where else to go.
I am supposed to be on bed rest.
My Mom doesn't want to help me with anything. She won't even keep an eye on them
so I can take a shower. Its literally been three days since I had a shower because I don't
have time. And she imposes stupid rules like the children can't sit on the floor of the bathroom
while I shower BEHIND a curtain, because its innapropriate. And I can't bathe the children together.
I understand its my responsibility but I am so exhausted and I just need some help.
Her excuse is she's old and she has a life.
Jesus christ! Needless to say I am NOT on bedrest as I'm medically ordered to do so,
and she makes my life miserable. I try to help out but she bitches about the way
I do things, because I didn't do them her way.
I am so ticked. I am exhausted. I don't know what to do.

Help!

Can you hire a babysitter or a mothers helper type situation to help you with the kids so you can rest?

I don't have any great suggestions. I moved in with my parents for exactly a week after I left my ex husband. I couldn't stay longer than a week for reasons just like yours, except I wasn't pregnant. I took out a loan so that I could get a place, it was that bad.

She is making your life hard to make you want to leave. Oldest parent trick. Sorry you are going threw this.

Go and try to get public assistance and move out cause that can't be good on you, your children or your unborn baby. Take your medical records with you and tell them what your mom is doing and they should help you... find a church that would be willing to help as well until you can get back on your feet

No, my ex left me with no money, we were about to be evicted, and no job.
I've filed for welfare and child support but that stuff takes a while. All I've heard was that my case
was accepted thru CSEA. So its just me.

I'm so sorry, I wish I could give you some advice. My mom has bent over backwards to help me out and I never had to ask. I hope everything works out for you!
