Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I hate to say it but at 20 weeks you are probably showing and a lot of employers would hesitate to hire you because of the expected maternity leave... maybe look into working from home?

Seek government support perhaps?

look for help for food within your local COUNTY. Call the courthouse in the county you live. They will help guide you with any assistance you will need. There are only a select few programs out there that can help you along the way. It is almost impossible to depend on government aide to fully support living cost. But, food support and cash support will help some. I have been down the same road with no job and was pregnant and the father was with me, but not involved at all. So, financially i found help throught the government and family/friends. Dont be afraid to ask for help because you need to do it for your child.  Good luck and best wished.

In Illinois they have a WIC program and I believe you can go there and get vouchers for food for while you are pregnant.  A friend of mine used it and said they paid for fruit, milk, etc. while she was pregnant and then vouchers for formula, babyfood, etc. after she had the baby.  They also gave her info and resources for health insurance for the baby.  She even worked and showed proof of income.  I think you should check online to see if you qualify.  Good luck!

If your going to school full time there will be more options for you when it comes to government support. If you have a degree look for jobs in the Sunday paper or even online. there may not be opportunities in your area so you may have to think about relocating. Good luck in your search

Well as much as it is against the law to not be hired  for your expecting they do it! You are not gong to find anything  until after the baby  , maybe you can  babysit  that is a good income average rate is  7-10 an hour  depending were you live   or  of you have to go to welfare  get a degree while your pregnant  so after baby is born  finding a job & paying for child care will  be much easier. My daughter in law  ran into the same problem as you   the baby is now 7 months old she is  working at doctor office  while  earning a degree  during her pregnancy. Good luck & God Bless

go to your health dept to get set up on wic. while you are there, ask them where you can go to apply for food stamps, and medicaid. if you have any unpaid medical bills, they will pay for the past 3 months.
