I love freecycle!!!!! That is where I got the playpen I have and some toys and clothes. If you lived here in Utah, I'd give it to you.

I have a pack n play that you can have. It is nothing fancy, but it does have a bassinet layer so that the baby is not in the bottom, but rather raised up. You are welcome to it for free.

i live in houston and i need to unload that kind of girly stuff, how far is arlington?, if you have a way to get here i can give you a brand new crib , a playyard/bassinet/changing station and a regualr bassinet, i also have a stroller/car seat that attaches and baby clothes, toys, lots of things, let me know
edit**i am 4 hours south of you, i dont know what your financial or transportation situation is, you are welcome to the stuff for free if you want them, it would be all that you needed for the baby (besides diapers)and then some, i tried to sell them today and i will not try again if you give me an answer today
also might i suggest having a late baby shower, and buying the kind of things that convert, like a playyard that is also a bassinett, a space saving high chair, a convertible car seat that attaches to a stroller

go to www.freecycle.org and find one for your area. You can request anything and people are always giving away baby stuff on mine.

Post what you need on freecycle.org. I've donated all my baby stuff through that.

I second the FreeCycle.Org website. You sign up and choose your state and find if your town or nearby town has a freecycle group. Ours has lots of offers of free baby stuff. I have given away all kinds of things we could possibly sell, but who wants the hassle of having a yard sale when life is busy. I have also asked for stuff. The posts are either "Wanted", or "Offer". Usually people will give it to the first responder and send a new post that says "PPU" meaning Pending Pick Up. I have had people email me that they want something and then simply not show up. I usually email the 2nd responder and offer it to them. Good luck with the hubbie situation. I would also ask local shelters for free lawyer advice. Good luck.

It sounds as if he might be controlling? did you have domestic violence issues? If you did the domestic violence shelters have a ton of resources like lawyers, etc. to help moms get on there feet. good luck!
