Baby number two and I work the night shift. I already feel awfull because I'm to tired to play around with my 2 year old. He wants to play all day but mommy is only good for a few hours. After that I just want to sit down and relax. Now baby. # 2 is on its way and I'm scared. The hubby works all day and won't be home to help we can't get child care because state won't help us. I'm going out of my mind. I can't afford not to work. Please help what do I do

I would suggest looking at your support network for help. Also, you could make part of your rest time sitting reading, singing, watching kids shows on TV etc. Also start stocking up on tinned and packaged food now while on sale so you have supplies when money is low. I'm using modern cloth nappies bought cheap from ebay and persisting with breastfeeding and pumping to save money.
You could start downsizing now with your expenses/luxuries if you have any.
