So, my baby's daddy is not being very nice. He was ALL for the sex, and he even said if I got pregnant he would love to have more kids (he has 3 by his ex wife).
But when I told him I was, he was like, "This always happens to me. Everytime I'm close to getting what I wanted something ruins it."
I guess he thought he was going to get the ex and the kids back. Whatever. I don't even care.
But I have some serious health problems and am unable to work right now. So I could really use some money! It seems to be that I should not be the only one responsible for all the prenatal expenses: doctors co-pays, medication (zofran and prenatals), plus all the other things that go along with day to day living.
I mean, I am carrying his CHILD here. You would think he could ever pick up the phone and ask how we're doing? NO. Not once since I told him!
Sorry, needed to rant. I really expected more from this man.
I'm on nothing. I need to get on something but I have no idea how or where to start.
I have been on and off work since last summer when I was diagnosed with Cancer. I had 3 surgeries and I worked each time in between and my body really never recovered properly.
I work at a fine dining restaurant and my boss told me I should find a new job because this is going to be too stressfull. That was when I told him I was pregnant. The only reason I told him was because I had called in twice with morning sickness plus I hadn't slept and I had to explain.
I really do not want to go back to work at that job but the money is so good nad I need the money to support myself and my child.
Right now my dad is basically supporting me and it is so embarassing. He is abusive and I have to put up with it because I have no where to go. He doesn't know I am pregnant and I am scared to tell him because he is going to freak. And who knows what he'll do?
Forsure you can head to the welfare office and apply there. If they know you are pregnant they will automatically consider you for WIC ( which is pretty much for pregnant and new moms.. they give food stamps and formula and all that lovely stuff)
I bet that you could look the nearest welfare office online....
My mom would trip if I got on welfare. She makes so much money, she cannot figure out why I can't just work right now. I don't know why either. Every time I go back to work, the anxiety hits again and I feel like I'm gonna die!
Believe me it's embrassing going to get welfare but honestly it's alot of help. Doctor's appointments are so expensive and then the ultrasounds are also expensive, but with medicaid all of that is paid for you don't have to worry. WIC is a life saver once you have the baby because 1 can of formula is 13 bucks. Right now my daughter is 2 months and she goes through 3 cans of formula a week. Your not gonna be on it forever just until you get on your feet.
