Any single mothers please help with my emotional toll. I am 15 weeks pregnant and I have a 8 month old daughter. I take care of her all by myself without hardly any help. The father to my children is in Jail and I'm really depressed. I have no transportation and I no job. I need work but no one will hire a pregnant woman because its too much of a risk, even though that's not what they will tell you at the interview. I go from day to day and I never get to go anywhere. I have no friends to spend time with and Everyone I know never asks me to do anything with them. Whats your advice ladies?

My fiance was locked up for 3 months while I was pregnant with my now 7 month old child, I didn't have a job, nor did I have a car, Stay postive, think how much the baby means to you, you dont want your child to have stress on him/her, do the best with what you have! my friends abanded me when I got pregnant, but I made sure to be happy everyday because i knew my baby needed me happy, i went to visit my fiance once a week thanks to some people that would give me a ride from my church, i dont believe in depression myself, but, do something that will make you feel better about yourself, make yourself believe that its going to get better because it will. I hope things will get better for you! My advice would be maybe join a local church if your into that or a parenting class, that you can talk to other ladys having children, not to teach you how to raise one but to help talk about your problems, that also helped me.
