So I decided to keep it and I wont tell my parents until Im ready because my mom will just fill my head with negative thoughts like "you can have a baby anytime" to "your man not even working right now" to "Im not helping" to "here you go messing up your life".
I wish you the best in what ever you choose and to real about, aint nobody ready to have a baby financially unless you wealthy and even if you wealthy you might have the money but probably dont have the time to put in.
I always will recommend craigslist and online baby sale places for clothes.. I spent $150 so far and have my baby's clothes all lined up til 9 months.. Plus another $30 for storage bins.. Babies go through clothes sooo fast so its great to get them used.. You're going to be spending a lot on diapers.. but you have time to prepare. Im 18 weeks along (19 on Friday) and I am starting to relax now that I have a bassinet (I got for $30 used), a crib ($120 new on Amazon), and a whole bunch of stuff I have been getting little by little. A baby does cost a lot but Im thinking by the half way point I will be all set and ready for him to come and can relax some.. you can do it.. and I didn't even start shopping until I hit 12 weeks and it became real.. just my whole paycheck (I dont make much) went to it for a couple weeks.
Hundreds of dollars in clothes for $150.. from craigslist and thrift shops
Everything adds up.. but little by little isnt so bad.
thank you so much to bokkechick for my siggy!
