UBC, I'm sorry things aren't easier! Are you in the U.S.? Here is a link on some resources for getting prenatal care: https://www.verywell.com/free-prenatal-care-2759784

You'll make it, you're stronger than you think! I'm 47 years old and 22 weeks pregnant. I was sooooo exhausted during the first trimester, I spent practically the whole 1st trimester sleeping. But now, I'm much better. The second trimester gets much easier.

I hate that my mother lives with me because she is all up in my business, bosses my kids around, is not happy unless I'm handing her money and has rearranged/redone my entire house in a bad way, much more clutter than I want to live in, but she likes clutter. Obviously I work full time and will have to go back to work as soon as possible after the baby arrives. I can't afford prenatal care and the father hasn't offered any money for that. I contracted bacterial vaginosis the first time we had sex and it reoccurs despite treatment. (I never had any STD /STI prior to him, I was married and faithful for 14 yrs prior.) my current kids are 6 & 8, there father lives in the other side of the USA. I have no family around me, none even close, so it's me, my kids and mother and this baby on the way. I'm planning to skip most prenatal care and have an unassisted home birth. I birthed my second unassisted with no problems. I guess the biggie is having this baby at 40, being single, money, wishing I have lived my whole life differently. The babies father says he will be financially responsible, but he is a penny pincher and expects kids to have no more than 3 or 4 sets of clothes. A baby can poop that up in less than a day. My life is totally not what I would wish on anyone, but I'm sure many have it worse.
Sorry you're having such a hard time! I hope things get better for you.
