I am just so frustrated!I have no car or job and I'm due in June.I would try to get a job but my mom thinks it's too late for me since my previous employer wouldn't hire me back when he found out I was pregnant(he didn't tell me that was why because he knew I could sue him but when I told him I was moving back he acted like he was going to) and I'd only be working for two months or so if I got one now so my mom said there is no point getting a job for a few months.and I don't mind sharing a car with my mom until I can get a car myself,but she can't stop her life when the baby is born she will still have to go to work everyday and I'll have weekly Dr appts and I'll have to get a job but the car can't be 2 places at once.so I really need to get a loan from the bank but to get a loan you have to have a job.I don't even have a credit;the only credit card I have is Victoria Secret.I would ask my mom for help but she can't afford that she already pays for so much stuff for me and my brother.it makes me so mad that my dad doesn't do sh*t for me or my brother but he does everything for his new wife's children

I totally understand. It will get better in time and everything will get worked out. I just gave my two weeks notice at my job because I'm due in 3 weeks and they wouldn't discuss maternity options with me and now they won't even it me on the schedule for the two weeks. Also my husband has been told he can't come back to work until he gets his emergence migraine meds worked out, he is a school bus driver. He already had to take a week and a half off until their doctor could clear him but the doctor won't clear him until he has No symptoms from his meds.  So he is out of work for 2 more weeks and this is right before We have our little girl but I know it will all work out. Life has a way of working out and God is good no matter what happens.

I'm due the first week in July and I have every intention of getting a job. I am going through a temp agency and i honestly have no hard feelings about having to leave in a few months. Businesses who go through temp agencies have an almost endless apply of people they are able to hire. I'm looking out for my baby and am mainly working to provide the stuff she'll need when she makes her entrance:) maybe you could consider that?

I understand your frustrations, but you can't mad at your father bc he doesn't help out. This is your child and you shouldn't expect others to do for you or your baby other than the baby's father. I hope everything works out for you....

I'm not mad at my dad for not helping.I haven't even asked him for help.he has never done anything for me.I'm just mad that he makes my mom do everything and my dad makes twice as much as her and can't even help her with anything.and my baby's daddy isn't doing anything he wants nothing to do with me or the baby
