We have been on foodstamps for 2 months now. It is $100 a month.

DH had to go back to school for his job and he hasnt been able to work so that is why we are here. He has one month left and then he will be back at his job, we will be off food stamps, and things will be better.

We have been trying for a baby knowing that all of this will be a non issue by the time I have the baby.

ETA: He had to go back to school because everyone at his job was required to get a masters degree. His job paid for the school and now he has his day back and when he will get his bonus. He is going to pass his classes so now there is nothing in the way. That is why we waited until now.

Also now that he will have his masters degree he will get paid more. We plan to have close to $50,000 in saving by the time the baby is here.

For those idiots who do not understand what I just said....we do not have anything really in savings right now. DH will be working and we will be putting at least half of his paycheck into savings each month


UPDATE: They let him go back to work just a little earlier than planned. HE got his bonus and we now have a few thousand in the bank. It feels so great

OH and I just got my first positive pregnancy test! I am so so excited!
