There are many thrifty ways to tweaking finances to meet your needs. You could go to local food and baby pantries. They provide baby neccessities. Breastmilk is FREE and best nutritionally. The WIC office provides a free manual breast pump if you are a client just in case you will be working. There is no hassle with getting up at night and mixing bottles, it would be a life saver if you have to go to work in the A.M. Cloth diapers are reusable, you dont need the fancy ones. I make my own baby food, all it takes is a $15.00 blender with a puree setting and fresh veggies and fruits. The state could potentially deem you in need of aid and could help get you financially stable. There are options for you, very soon you will see this precious unborn child as a blessing, as children are. Good luck to you! You will be glad you decided not to abort. God bless :)

Are you getting child support for your 20 month old? I had my son when I was 20, he is now 4. I just recently started getting child support for him in the great state of Texas it makes it very easy. And if you are having a lot of financial difficulty I would definitely look into that option. I was very stubborn for years saying I didnt need or want help. But in actuality its much better for your children. Theres also a lot of organizations in different states that can help you find things you need for your baby, such as hand me down cribs, clothes, swings, the basic NEEDS. The main thing to focus on is the big expenses like diapers and formula. Which you can get a lot of help from manufacturers of those items and get coupons and whatnot. If you can breast feed the first few months that definitely helps with the formula cost as well. Are you with the father of the child currently?
