HI ! My name is Jessica, I am a 23 year old mother of one. I have a beautiful son. He is almost 6 mos. old. I am a radiology technologist, I work weekends only so that I can be home with my lil guy! I'm learning how much changes when you become a mother! Your perspective on life completely changes. Motherhood has been amazing thus far... but they do grow so quickly! I'd love to meet others out there being as though many of my friendships have changed since I have a baby now and most of them do not.

Hello, first off your little man is so cute!! I have one daughter who just turned 2. I agree with you that your perspective on life and what is important in it changes drastically when you get pregnant and then even more when the baby arrives. I am 28 wil be 29 in 2 weeks. Friendships do change, but you make new ones. Friends who aren't really close really don't want to talk about babies all the time, But our babies are our life so what else would we talk about really? . If you work then you have work to talk about, me I have my little girl and my pipe band. And really only the ones who count will stick around and be as excited as you are when you talk about milestones or something new he learned.

Hi Jessica! Congratulations on your handsome son. My name is Joscelyn, I'm 29 and I have 3 boys. My eldest is 11 years old and now I have 17 month old identical twin boys. Motherhood absolutely changes your life. Someone else now totally depends on you and needs you. A lot of friendships that you might have had before you had a child do change after a child arrives, especially if the other friend does not have any children. Hope to talk to you soon!

Hi Jessica nice to meet you, i am a mother of 3 wonderfull children whom i adore, i am 29, i was 19 when i had my first and alot of my friendships changed when i had my first too, i found that most of my friends didnt have children so it was hard to keep up with the friendship as they were doing different things to me in life like going out clubbing etc while i stayed home with baby, it was hard but luckily for me i met alot of friends in a mum and baby group whom i could talk to about all the joys of motherhood and we are all still close friends now. Please feel free to talk about anything you like from the good to the bad as motherhood has both of these!! and most of all enjoy everyday as a mother because before you now it they grow up so quickly my oldest is now 11 and she is always out with her friends or doing her own thing, Hope to speak to again.x
