People disappear since pregnancy

Since I got pregnant I noticed I actually don’t have true friends. Everyone has stopped speaking to me that would usually do so and when I try to visit people or see anyone they make an excuse up and to be honest this is the loneliest I’ve ever been. I wish I had someone to share my pregnancy stories with and to have a good chat with or do something nice but I don’t. The only person is my mum and it is nice and everything still but sometimes I just want a friend. They say you get more friends when you become a mum but where do you even make them when you don’t have them regardless? Is anyone else actually having this problem? It’s driving me insane.

100% - even my close friends who are going to be godparents have distanced a little and don’t speak to me as much as they used to it’s sad but I think part of it is because having a child changes your priorities and puts you on a different level to them. I don’t think it’s malicious it just puts a little distance between us

Oh Nat, can totally relate. At first I blamed covid for how I felt. But really I had no one to talk to and no one really wanted to know what I went through giving birth in lockdown was hard. I’ve come to the realisation that I’ve only got 1 friend that actually checks on me and asks how I’m feeling. I was always the friend that is there for them but sadly it’s not been reciprocated. Here if you want a chat 😊

Your circle changes when you become a mom. It’s sad but completely true. My friends, aren’t real friends
