Single parents

I just found out I'm pregnant and I am going to be a single parent, I am very scared about budgeting.  My job does not provide paid leave.  I do not know what is going to happen from here.  How do other single parents do it?  What am I missing?

Although this is a perfectly fine place to post this question, i'm going to reccomend you try the pregnancy 34-21 forum (no matter your age) there is a great bunch of girls there, some pregnant, some not. They can offer lots of adive and its a community full of support.
I wish you the best of luck and see you in the other forum!

What do I do?
I got preg on bc didn't know untill 4 months along. & he doesn't want a baby I dont either but we already had an abortion last year. I have a two yr old & he has 2 kids. I told him I'm not getting another abortion. He went from stressed to happily naming or unborn son & now stressed again. I understand but he told me hes not going to have anything to give our baby because hes taking care of his two kids. So I ask him are u saying u can't help me? He says ya then I say wow so I'm doing this on my own now? He gets mad & says thats y I said abortion I told u I have financial problems. & just goes off. Hes putting me through up & down emotions I know it's gonna be hard but we have to do it. I even said we can do adoption & he said no. so what am I supposed to do?

I'm tired of being stressed about this. He told me he would help me now hes crying about not being able to. Do I have to set up child support or what? He really hurt me today by the way he came at me.
I'm scared I'm going to be a single mom of two now.
