That's exactly what I'd have told my daughter, except I'd have been a LOT more verbal about the situation. In other words, they'd have also gotten a lecture about their choice of having multiple encounters of unprotected sex without having a plan to handle the possible resulting pregnancy.

Theoretically, if your eldest is only 10 months old, you shouldn't need a whole lot of extras, other than another crib and car seat. And, of course diapers, etc (unless you're using cloth). And, if you're a student, your income isn't in the highest bracket, so churches, charities, low income agencies are all there to help in those circumstances. Much easier, actually than trying to get a bunch of strangers on the internet to send you things...That actually concerns me more for your safety than anything else!

But, in my local community, we have a bunch of groups on FB, one is a garage sale group, another is an upcycle/freecycle group, a third is a yardsale group...where we can post up items that we're looking for, or looking to get rid of. Try searching for something like that in your area. I'd think that would be much safer than putting your personal info up on an international site...opens you up for all sorts of weirdos showing up on your doorstep. That you DEFINITELY don't need!

Contact local services in your area. Churches, charities, low income agencies, etc.

And, if you haven't already, get implanted birth control after this one's born. That way, you can finish your education, and not have to worry about getting pregnant every time you have sex.
