are you talking about one particular friend? She might be hurting, seeing you with a baby, if she cant have kids. That's something you don't need to talk to her about if it upsets her, or you. If you want to keep her friendship, work on it, call her, meet her, when you're with her, don't talk about your self at all, keep the subject on her and what's going on with her and in her life, keep turning the conversation back to things you know she likes to talk about. If you don't want to keep the friendship, then stop calling her and see how long it takes her to ask you what's wrong.

Just about every child health centre, library, church and community centre have mums groups with other mums who just want to get out for a bit and chat about how their life's going. Get out there. We make friends all through our life, and lose them too, that's life, we grow, we change. I'm 37. I have one friend from school years, a handful of friends from uni years and am making some great friends through being a mum now.

Yeah is this just one friend or all your friends? Maybe you are calling them at the wrong time of day.

Why dont you just join a mothers group and have them as friends other mums around the same age and that are also pregnant and exchange ideas and make new friendships with. And your friends sound like they werent even your friends after all if there treating you like that more on.
