I have to keep reminding myself I can't apply for 16 and pregnant! I just feel so immature but I'm 31! I've been in a relationship for nearly 8 years.

Think the hardest thing is having no friends in same situation. I will be the first to have a baby (if everything goes to plan) other than a couple of work colleagues who I don't know that we'll I am really isolated with this. I suppose that's my main reason for being here. I'm hoping once it does actually happen I can go to mother and baby groups or something and hopefully make some new friends on the same level!

Before I had my little girl, I had a group of around 7 friends who I could hang out with every weekend. When I got pregnant I seen less and less of them. I made two of them god mother & I think they've seen by daughter a handful of times since she was born. Still waiting for LOs Christmas presents (not that the gifts matter, but a visit over Christmas would have been nice) I don't get invited anywhere, and when I invite them they always have something better to do.
My social anxiety made it difficult for me to attend mother & toddler groups (I found a lot of mothers there were very judgmental & condescending! I was 23 when I had her but look about 14 *rolleye*) I stuck it out 'til it had to close. I enrolled my little girl in nursery a few hours a week so she had all the benefits of mixing with children. Now I have one friend really, and my cousin who I'm close with.

I sound like a right saddo, haha I recently met a girl at work with a daughter same age as mine who's currently pregnant, so I'm finally feeling what its like to have some understanding friends! But yeh people warned me and I never thought it would happen but it definitely did! Not nice. xxx

You do lose friends when you have kids. I have one close friend and a friends with a few people from work, closest friend from there is only 18! You realise the people who obsess over babies then dont care when they are getting bigger. Its nice to come on here and talk to people who are in same situation as you are. Im 27 ive moved to a new area in the last year. My son started going to a new school, my friends kids go to his old school. Dont know any parents as seem to dont want to let you in if you havent been there from the start! Xx

I spoke to my daughter's best friends (from school) mum the other day in town. Didn't wanna seem creepy and say wanna hang out?! As she probably has friends already I said to OH we might as well move away and start again. My friends still pretend to care about my daughter too and I know it's all fake which really hurts. But oh well! I'm closer to OHs friends now. Even he's lost some though.

We're really selling this!

Yea I know it happens. It happened to one of our group a few years ago but she withdrew herself. It's a shame really. I know it's gonna be hard. I have an anxiety disorder too and have struggled badly over the past year or so. Ended up doing CBT which really helped. I'm just hoping I can suck it up but yea I don't think I will cope with people looking down their nose at me.

Only saving grace is I'm an only child and I like being alone and I'm usually quite content in my own company so I don't think I'm going to be devastated when no one comes to visit...

Yup I'm a saddo too

Usually wait till period is due before testing. Either on the morning its due if you havent come on by then. Do you track your cycles? There is free apps you can see how long your cycles are? Just have to record first day of period. Dont have to do anyhing else if you dont want to yet

I've been using an app for YEARS just to track coz I used to be terrible. Plus they went haywire one time when I was really sick. So that side should be fine. AF is 18th (without checking app...) I feel sick at the thought of being PG and at the thought of not... ah well.. what will be will be

It's the best thing in the world having a baby you'll find that out along with all the stuff everyone complains about. Just try not to worry!

Saying that my LG just dropped her curry all over the floor & I've got her toothpaste on my only clean pair of work pants! Whey
