I'm 33 and 17 weeks pg. The dad promised me that if I got pg he'd stick by me no matter what, but the day before the test came back positive he left. When I told him, he said "it changes nothing". I've tried remaining friends but he's unable and unwilling so I'm doing it alone.
I have no friends or family locally; both of my parents have passed and I moved here at the dad's request. I can't leave now because of financial and medical constraints. I'm worried about those first few months after the baby is born. I'm positive I'll need help.
I don't have the cash to hire a nurse or another caregiver. Making friends here is a challenge but I haven't given up yet! Any other suggestions on how or where I can find resources to assist when the time comes?
public aid wic churches any friends. i am sorry that you are going thru this but you can handle this . i have been thru this and it is not easy by any means but iot can be done. any family where you used to live that may be able to help??
yes go to WIC
its a free program to help mothers who need support
you get free formula and careal,milk,eggs ,chees and bread
also go to churches
it doenst matter if your religous
you need help for your baby
thrift shops are great
and how come you arnt eligable for financial aid?
sorry to hear that you are not eligable here in my state if you are single you qualify. maybe you can talk to them again i would also talk to a lawyer about your rights and child for compinsation and support from the so called dad good luck hun and if you need anything or a shoulder to cry on i am here you can pm me if needed.
The only problem with wic is that she lives in Canada. I'm not sure that they have it there....though it's worth a try. You might check with your health department......Maybe you should attend birthing classes. There's a lot of other pregnant moms there. Who knows maybe you could make some friends and have the support that you need when the time does come to have the child. Other then that i'm sure that you can make it. If you have to go back to work soon after the baby the best thing to do is to maybe find a daycare that takes infants. Talk to them...maybe they will be willing to work with you on a payment.
I just went through the same thing. After I had the baby I moved when she was 3 weeks old back to New York by all my family. It's really such a terrible thing I just don't understand why they do this to us especially when we need them most. You should really decide if you want to move or not, because once you have the baby stuff together it is so hard to then take it apart and pack with a newborn. So at list you can get ready to move now so It might make it easy. I wish you the best but I will tell you it's hard
