no one has said your a bad mother because your poor. and when it comes to saving for a car, that's something you may want to seriously consider. i have been in a similar situation as you. we did not have a car until a few days before my first child was born. so i walked 2 miles to work. i worked 2 full time jobs until i was 7 months along, and urged to quit by my doctor. however, when you have a question like, "did my water just break?" you need to be on the phone with your doctor, because no one on the internet can answer that question for you. think about this-after your baby is born, she/he is going to get sick. ear infections, colds, etc. how do you plan on getting your child to the doctor's office when they say, "bring him/her in now, and have us take a look". you may think that spending $45 on a phone with internet is better than saving for a car. you need a phone, sure. that's a neccesity. but you also need to think about some type of transportation soon. you can't always rely on public transportation, or a friend to give you rides here and there. taking a taxi will get very expensive very quickly.
