I'm 29 weeks pregnant. For the past 7 months I have been on and off with this baby's father. We were together for 2 years prior to finding out I was pregnant. He promised to be there and help, as months passed he became very abusive and several times charges for domestic violence we placed. I have been working long hours trying to provide I'm living on my own paying my own rent utilities car and for my first son completely on my own. With complications starting inky pregnancy I'm forced to cut downmy hours. I'm so overwhelmed with bills and things my baby needs to get by. He has refused to help and I'm at my wits end. I have to go on maternity leave in may and I'm at a loss how I'm supposed to keep up with bills food roof over my head. I feel depressed and stressed everyday like its all my fault. I have no friends nor family and I feel so alone. I love my baby more thananything in this world and I don't want to give himup for adoption. I need advice or someone just to talk to.

Do you just not have family near you? Or no family at all?
Wow - what a tough situation to be facing. My heart goes out to you!! I work at a non-profit organization, Focus on the Family, that offers free counseling for those in need of advice and someone to talk to . . . please feel free to give them a call at 1-855-771-HELP (4357). I am praying for you!
Thanks for all the concern. I do have family here my parents, but my mom is where majority of my stress comes from. She likes to provoke my ex and loves drama in her life. My dads disabled and lives on his own since my grandma passed in a one bedroom apartment and everything's all about him. I have actually went into preterm labor twice this week and right now I've been in the hospital going on 3 days. My contractions wouldn't stop so they gave me brethine (?) To stop them. I've dilated to 2cm and just received my second steroid injection. I'm trying to keep myself away from any stress that will cause me to go into labor. Its just sad I want my baby to be strong and healthy and stay in for as long as possible. But my own mother even came to the hospital to bitch at me today and start drama at the hospital. So now she is banned from being here. My sons health is my number one concern and all my family's done today is blow up my phone bothering me..

Im actually living in government housing. But my rent is still out of my budget, because my job wrote them and foodstamps that I was working 35 hours and then the week following cut my hours to 10 a week screwing everything up. Now I'm in process of moving out due to not being able to work. If I'm discharged from here I will be on very strict bedrest. But the only place I can stay right now is my ex and his family or go to my moms.. I need to get stability so I can reapply for my benefits.. I'm in process of my second stateboard exam for cosmetology getting my license.. once I'm able to work I know everything will be fine but for now I feel so helpless
