Today is my birthday. Its not any birthday. Its my 21st birthday and I'm 7 months pregnant. I'm just really sad and I feel like I'm missing out. Then I feel guilty for feeling that way because my daughter is so important to me and I love her so much and I couldn't imagine my world without her. I'm just tired of not having my body and I want it back. Sorry I needed to talk somewhere and maybe hear some positive things. Thanks for listening.

Hey Mary, hang in there girl! just think in just about 2 months you will have a baby beautiful baby girl, which is a lot more than a lot of 21 year old girls have. Your little one will love you soooo much too!

I know excatly how you are feeling. When I had my firstbaby I turned 21 while I was pregnant. I didnt think it would bother me, until the day came.I celabrated my B-Day, then after she was born, she was almost 2 months old and I went out to really celabrat it!!!! Though I will tell ya this..I felt even more guilty going out after she was born then I did for my feelings I had turning 21 and not being able to go out cause I was preg...Just know its ok to feel this way...Your not the only one who has...Try to think of your baby as a belated B-Day gift, :) Hope you feel better..HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!

Hey mary I know how you feel is was my birthday this past saturday... It was alright but Im 24 and still (or used to ) do out and have a good time and this year it was hard because I did nothing but eat. Im sick of being pregnant and everything and everyone else. I feel your pain, by the way when are you due I have 9 long weeks to go. By the way HAPPY 21st you will be able to go and party again

Happy Birthday Mary! I was 9 months pregnant with my son on my 21st. birthday so I know how you feel. I was pretty bumbed out myself that day but I got through it. What I did was on the day of my birthday I started making plans for a big party that I was throwing for myself after the baby was born. That party has gone done in history! Don't feel guilty about feeling the way you do, its completely natural. The good news is that this will all be over soon and you will have a beautiful child to show for it. Maybe today you can get some movies, and indulge in some serious junk-food (it won't hurt you or the baby if you slide on the nutrition for one day.)

Hi Mary. My 30th birthday is in March, & I'll be entering my ninth month of pregnancy. I know exactly how you feel. I'm not a big partier, but still can't help feel like I'd be able to celebrate a little more if I didn't feel like a heartburn-inundated, wheezing, ache-y whale! lol But I also see it this way... this is my first baby, it's a new adventure, it's a unique story in my life to share with my loved ones. Don't feel guilty for your feelings. I sorely wish I had my body back too, birthday or not. Totally understandable. Happy 21st! Hope it's beautiful. :)

Thank you all so much. You all made me feel much better. It didn't turn out so bad. At first it just seemed like another day. Then my sister took me out and we went to this club where you had to be 21 to get in so that made me feel like I was doing something for this certain birthday that I couldn't do last year. So I made everyone drink double for me since I couldn't. Noone minded that. I got to dance and so did the baby. I'll just have to make up for it later. Thanks again for listening.

im 19, my boyfriend just turned 21, and he's always going out. Its not fair, i cant go out and party and hang out with friends because im so close to going into labor, i know i couldn't go to bars with him even if i wasn't pregnant. i just feel like if im stuck at home, he should be stuck at home with me. maybe im just selfish but it makes me feel like im going through this pregnancy alone

Hey Girly cheer up. Being 21 isn't what it's cracked up to be. I just turned 23 in January. If it makes you feel better my doctor gave me a shot in the b___t for my b-day. The only thing that changes when you turn 21 is that you are legal to drink. Trust me you will have plenty of time to do that once your little bundle of joy is born. Take the time and treat your self to a pedicure or manicure or something nice and relaxing.
