My husband is always overseas for work, and we hardly have time to communicate beyond an hour every few days. I have not been in touch with my parents or his in-laws very much, and they live 12 hours away. Most of my friends have never been pregnant before, so I can't talk to them about what I'm going through either.

Where and who do you turn to for emotional support? Do you make new friends and if so, how? :(.. I feel really helpless.. and lonely...

I'm really not sure if I should get in touch with my parents and in-laws..

Well get involved with this site where you can ask questions and answer them and make great friends too. If you are worried about the baby then the best person to ask fot advice is your midwife who is there for you at any time. Having a good relationship with her is vital to make you feel comfortable and relaxed around her, she is going to be in your life for quite a while until the baby is 6 weeks old.

Normally there are parenting classes as well, where you could meet other women in your area due to give birth around the same time as you. Once the baby is born join a mums and tots group (after vaccinations) where you will meet mums with kids of all ages under the age of 5. It is a great place to meet mums facing the same problems as you are and who are looking for friends and later on play dates for their kids.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
