Need help leaving an abusive relationship while pregnant with 2nd child!?
Im only 19 years old and Ive already heard it all about my age and stuff by now so you don't have to waste your time telling me. Thing is I left my boyfriend who was providing for me financially and am now living with my mother! I still feel like I NEED him! I mean how do i go about getting a job when I have no child care and Im already 20 weeks pregnant? I have my GED but not really any experience only 3 months of being a cashier! And i live in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood so speaking spanish is pretty much a must if you have no experience! Not only that but I also have no car or license and obviously cant afford to buy a car! I just feel like there is nothing I can do i tried looking for child care but I must be in school or work 20 hours a week! how am i to do that with no child care in the first place? I feel like ive dug this hole so deep there is no way out and I am starting to think I will just have to put up with my ex just to survive! I'm so scared and I just need help! I live in dallas so if you know of any places that help teen mothers get on their feet over here that would be wonderful! Thank you everybody for helping. I really need it I'm so overwhelmed right now with my highrisk pregnancy a son going through his terrible twos and now feeling like I'm putting more stress on my mother.

If you have a doctor or go to an OB clinic, talk to them there. They should be able to get you in touch with a social worker who can help you find some resources and child care. Good Luck!
