My situation, to me is a bit weird, or so i think because i was always the life of the party, made many friends, and ofcourse had a few dear close one. When i found out that i was expecting i spread the news like wild fire, i mean i had been in my current relationship for over 8yrs now , live with the love of my life and finally married and now expecting our first child, so telling everyone was joyous! The response i got back from most of my girlfriends were normal reactions, "Congratulations" etc. but for every month that went by i lost contact wit yet another dear friend. Now at this point i have extended phone calls to them sporadically cause i know that i am pregnant and i may not be able to burn a hole on the dance floor, but shit its not a disease, its a part of adult life and i was amazed how i have totally been swept under the rug, by the girls i actually considered my friends. At this point i have read between the lines, gotten the hint, i guess, i have even made up excuses for them all, but my daughter is 16 months now and all of my fun girls have abondened me, and i find it absolutely appalling and disgusting that they would one day expect more from anyone else when they finally decide to reproduce. So in general i have started this post just to see if this behavior has affected any other new moms. I know that i may not have much in common as far as my new role but i am still the same friend i have always been, my brain has just added a new app, which is raising my daughter with love and care!
