It gets lonely.

I am 20 years old with a six month old son and 21 year old fiance. He works most of the time so I'm just dying to talk to someone who understands what it's like to be a 24/7 mommy especially being so young and knowing what people my age are supposed to be doing.

Yay finally! Well I live in Edmond and I have my whole life. Before I got pregnant my life as a little out of control crazy teenager that doesn't think of consequences so once I got pregnant I really had to straighten up while I watched my boyfriend turn 21 and go out all the time. But now I couldn't be happier taking care of my son but I lost all my friends because they weren't the kind of influences I would want him around you know so yeah. I just want someone to relate to basically.:)

You can talk to me! Our situation is very, very similar. I am a stay at home mom of a 5 month old- I'm 20 and my boyfriend is 21. He's a college athlete so he is ALWAYS gone. I don't have any friends in this city because I live here so he can be close to his son. It's very hard...

Hi, I totally understand! I was 19 when I had my first dd. I now have 3 children and I am 30. My husband works nights, and it can be extremely lonely due to him being gone at night (5pm-7am) and sleeping during the day. I have found little ways to keep me busy. My children are older now so it's better(11,8,7). When they were younger I would go to a lot of playgrounds, walks and library/pool activities. It is not an easy thing by yourself and 3 children but you become friends and help each other. Also websites like these are great. Is there a group for your city? I belong to one where I live and they do a lot of group activities. Going out to a movie with a friend is also good too. Also date nights..... Don't focus on being by yourself. Cherish the time you have with your child, trust me, it goes by way too fast.

Hi! I understand how you are feeling. I'm 25 and I have to admit that there are still some days that you just want someone to talk to after a tiring day. My husband works and is busy most of the time too. But having a ME time every once in awhile helps :) it doesn't matter if it's an hour in the tub or a walk or just a quiet night by yourself in the room or a good book / magazine..It will help! & trust me..bonding with your little one in a fun way is precious too :)
