really dissapointed and sad and upset.. needing advice on what to do.

so.... i went into pre term labor today. My husbands military pay has been messed up for so long now that we have blown through our saving to pay the bills that we cant afford because he is not getting proper pay... ( they keep twiddling their thumbs instead of fixing it) now im down to one more paycheck till she is here IF i can keep myself rested to not go into labor again... and im freaking out. not only do i still need CD's but i have NO CARSEAT!!!! i was so set on taking coming home pictures in the true fit carseat with the butterflies from walmart as this is our first girl.. but because im a parent with no more time to try and buy it im needing advice on how to get a free carseat till i can afford one of my own. Is their programs like that? im in the Pheonix area if that helps... i dont know how to go about it or where to look. any ideas mamas?

Im in Buckeye AZ about 20-40 min from Pheonix (depending on where your headed in pheonix) and about 4 hours from LA. My husband did receive an AER loan a few months ago to help with our rent because i didnt have enough to cover it, (hes overseas right now in Korea) and they keep telling him its fixed and then there is always some reason why it didnt really get fixed.. its been 7 months of this, i keep praying it will come through soon, but i dont think it will in time.


OPP, I asked the hospital and they said you have to be within a certain income and well, i am over it. it sucks. I thought fire stations would but not anymore i guess? im kind of at a loss.

thank you both for responding to help give advice and for the hugs!

I'm pretty sure the hospital will give you one if you dont have one upon discharge from the hospital

Hope everything works out soon, and you get the butterfly seat you're hoping for! Stay rested and try not to stress mama, keep that baby girl baking a little longer.

If there is a chance she will come early, I wouldn't plan on a True Fit. It fits full term babies great but won't fit a preemie well

Here is how to apply online. Just explain that you have income but pay has been messed up for months.

Good luck.
