I'm 23 and preggo- my bf and i have been together for a yr and i became preggs despite all teh birthcontrol we tried :-o but .. Im happy to be having my baby - as is my bF (who lives with me) .. I have no job and he suports me (he only works a target stocker position and $ is tight) ..He is addicted to video games .. tho he says he wont be buying any for a while (he has spent $70 on games this month so far) .. Im due in late feb and he hasnt bought a single baby item.. he comes home and plays games then promises to help me around the house and falls asleep -- AND to top it off blames me for being so cuddly that i make him passout?! Ive tried yelling and screaming and talking and notes..postings online... both mean- concerned and trying to appeal to how it makes me sad...Ive tried calendars and check lists and dry-erase boards.. He's a nice guy. I love him.. but I am often left feeling very alone in this pregnancy. Him and his father point out how he doesn't do drugs and he doesnt drink.. and how he's always been a very 'upstanding' citizen.. liek school crossing guard and HS football team.. Im afraid that we wouldnt have what we need for the baby if it weren't for family buying things.. I have 3 months-ish to go - and he says we have time - liek he did when it was 7 mo left and 5 mo left-- ect.. any advice? I mean- theres no breaking up for a good 9months - but Before I give up - i really would like to try everything i can to save us and our little family.
