Meg - October 5

Im preg with my 1st and feel so cut off from everything. I cant do any of my old activities but everyone else (husband & friends) all still do i feel so left out. Anyone know how to cope with this ?

hi Meg, I'm only 18 and preg. with my first too.I can relate to what you're going through because I had a lot of difficulty dealing with this at the first of my pregnancy.I had to go to my prom and spend the whole summer pregnant,which is really hard this young because I only have a few friends who are also pregnant.Talking/spending time with other pregnant women helps a lot. Also, my "friends" stopped coming around when I made the choice not to go out partying anymore to avoid alcohol and cigarette smoke.So I found other hobbies and stuff that interested me to keep myself busy(like sc___pbooking,reading pregnancy books), and now I am not even wishing I was able to go out and do the things they do.Maybe go to pregnancy yoga or water areobic cla__ses, it's an easy way to meet other ppl in the same situation.Also, talk to your husband about how you feel. I did with my boyfriend and he is really supportive and he doesn't party or do things I'm not able to do, and this makes it so much easier, probably more than you'd think.

I know what you are feeling. I am 25 and this is my 1st. The father and I are not married and are currently just friends(that is his doing). He still gets to go out and hang out with his friends. My friends all have careers and live an hour or so away so I am feeling pretty lonely myself. I am currently 33 weeks and I hope it gets better.
