I don't think anyone will tell you that raising a child by yourself is going to be easy. You only have a couple of months before your little one arrives so you need to use these couple of months to plan. How do you think your parents will react when you tell them? Why haven't you told them? Maybe they will be supportive and you can use that right now. Why don't you want anything to do with the father of the child? He is a danger to the baby? Also, it's very important to get pre-natal care during pregnancy. They sell the pre-natal vitamins now in the health food stores. You can buy them without a prescription.
hi,my parents are not only separated but also not so gud wen it comes to parenting,tellin them will only bring me stress which am nt redi 4 cz of da pregncy,we had broken up b4 i found out i wz prgnt n wen i tld hm,he nt only abused me n my baby bt also asked me 2 abort,we hv neva spoken eva snc.tx
I understand. You're going to really need to think and plan for the next two months. What disturbs me is the this child is not even born yet and it's being neglected by not being provided with the proper pre-natal care. You should figure out a plan for when the baby needs medical care, diapers, formula. Your telling me that your job cannot support this new baby, what do you plan to do about that? You're going to have to make some serious changes in the next two months. I hope everything goes well for you.
I'm not trying to stress you out, just want to make sure you're ready when your little one arrives. Are you in the U.S.? You may want to check with your county or state to see what type of services they will offer you and your baby. I hope everything goes well for you.

Where I live there are a LOT of resources. My best friend was someone without any money for prenatal, and I got her hooked up with Medicaid. What area are you from, I will look up an office in your area so you can fill out the information and start receiving free medical visits. They can also get you reduced housing as well as dental visits.
You need to contact someone who can help you. I refer a lot of people to birthright (birthright.com) because thats where I went when I was pregnant with my son and they were amazing. They helped me with getting set up with free insurance and even gave me free maternity clothes and offered a bassinet. Look them up or give them a call 866-576-2764
