Hi my name is Katherine I am almost 20 years of age and I am Currently 23 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I found out 8 weeks ago that i was expecting a child and only 3 weeks ago I found out I am having a duaghter.

My mother has finally accepted me and her grand daughter and has allowed me to move back in with her. This has now led me to relax but stress all over again. My mother is soon to turn 60 with a full time job, Fiance and 4 other people living in her home. I am greatly concerned for her mental state with a baby in the house on top of all the stress she has.

Please... What should I do?

First off congrats! I would use this time to make some purchases I dont know if you are being asked to pay rent or if you have a job but I would suggest starting to but things for your baby girl now. Help her out as much as you can. Have you looked into goverment assistance for housing and what not.

Be honest and open with your mom. Ask her what you can do to help ease her burden.

Do you plan on staying with your mom for a while? If so, I would probably talk about splitting expenses and what share of the rent/house payment, grocery, utilities bills would not only be fair but economical for you and your mother.
