Hi everyone. I'm looking for some opinions/advise on my situation.
I found out last year I was pregnant. At the time my boyfriend and I lived together in an apartment. He's not working oil rigs, but is a diamond driller. He decided that the best thing to do would be to move into a house where we would have more room for the two of us, our dog and our baby on the way:)
He figured in order to get a house so young (I'm 20, and he's 22) a good idea would be to move out of town, to make some extra dollars then, by "working out of town".
Thing is... now I'm all by myself with a new baby (now almost 9 months old), in a town where I know no one, have a dog and a house to take care of. His parents and aunts and uncles live in the town we do now, but its totally not the same as were I did live... where I grew up, where my siblings and parents and all of my friends live, and where he is STILL working.
I don't now how to deal with not having any friends, my own family around. In a town I don't know, and being a first time mom. As apposed to having been in a town with my family, friends, and having been in school and working at the same time. I dont know what to do with myself. Especially once all of the house cleaning is done ( which doesnt take much because it's rare that anythings out of order).
Should I go back and stay with my parents (considering I couldnt afford an aparment or anything now)... or should I tough it out in our house? Also, I looked at going back to work to get me outta the house..but by the time I pay for daycare and gas and everything I can't really afford to do that.
Please let me know what you think
