Pregnant and need help
Organized by: Jami Segura
I am Jami Gout. I am pregnant and about to have my first baby in a few weeks. I am extremely worried about money. I am late on a few medical bills I have no money at all and no way of getting any for weeks and months even. Because I will be taking care of my baby. Having a lack of money really makes it hard to live comfortably. My husband has had blood clots and has been to many different jobs. We both haven't held a job for more than a month recently. So his medical bills and everything are taking a toll on us also. He just barely got a job that he is keeping. But it is a bit late for us to catch up. We live with my husband's mom and it has been a goal to get out of her place. His mom will be moving out in a few months and we do not have a clue what to do when she does leave. We may end up homeless on the streets. I don't know. I don't want the government to take my baby because I won't have a place for her, or us even. I am scared because I know my husband needs me to work also in order for us to live healthy. We have had a loan before and it ended up being a huge mistake. We owe a lot. We make payments but right now it is hard to even make them on time. We can't even pay his mom to live with her. I feel like she wants us to get out and we are lucky to even have a spot with her. If anyone could help at all I would be grateful. I am worried that my husband will be overwhelmed and overworked to get us out of this mess and I don't want my daughter in this environment where there is tension and stress. I have applied for Medicaid and all help that I could. They wouldn't help us at all. We could use any cash towards the baby, towards food, and things we need. Also I would save the money given for a place to live. That is what I want most. I want to feel safe with my family. Instead of living in my husband's mom's home. I feel like we have imposed enough on her space and freedom. I would appreciate any help given. Please and thank you.
