Single, Expecting Twins & Unemployed.

Any moms or expecting moms are single and unemployed? I would just like to know how did you cope or how are you coping?

This is a sad pregnancy for me. I only have my mom who is retired and the expectant father of my twins. He doesn't make much money. In fact, just today I asked for a meal from Mcdonalds & he got very fusssy when a few dollars have to leave his hands.

Sometimes I just don't bother bcuz hearing curse words & seeing someone upset just isn't worth it (is what I tell myself). I don't live in the US so I am not priviledged to get 'free stuff' for expectant moms.

I'm six months and I'm still in the process of packing my emergency hospital bag. Sometimes a simple walk on the beach and a few dollars for myself would be satisfying for me. I just want a peace of mind and fresh air so my babies won't be stressed.

I'm sorry to hear that Tally. I am single, but I do work 2 jobs. My kids father doesn't help financially either. It's been lonely for me, but I try to stay positive for my kids. There has to be programs somewhere to help you. Maybe look into Churches and religious organizations that may help people in need. You have no food pantries? Or diaper banks etc? There has to be something, somewhere that can give you a hand!

which county do you live in? There are programs in many countries to help out.
