So, I know I don't actually have much to complain about in life but recently I can't get past feeling so lonely. OH and I live in a really small town which is either full of students or retired people. There are hardly any parents and virtually none in our age group...also, because of that, there's not much in the way of groups to join either. I'm self-employed so have to work alone a lot anyway and the only people we see are from church. The church folk are lovely but I just never found anyone there that I click with or could build a friendship with.... 3 other girls there are having babies but I'm not really part of their group, despite trying to be......
I know I sound a little lame but am dreading the idea of being stuck here in this town with a small baby and nobody to talk to.....
I really do not know what to say but didn't want to RnR. It could be the hormones at the moment, you've just entered third tri and the due date is growing closer so there is that added thought. I think once baby gets here though things will slot back into place a bit more, the limbo of pregnancy will be gone and having a baby doesn't mean you can't do the things you enjoy, just means you have someone tagging along.
I kinda know how you feel. My husband and I moved about an hour away from all family and friends because of his job. My pregnancy has been super easy and smooth, but it's been hard on me knowing that my nearest relative or friend is so far. I have the opposite prob than you though, we moved from a close knit town to a big city, and it's been an adjustment.
So sorry to hear your feeling like this. i have been a bit worried about feeling isolated once not at work.
Sounds like youve tried what you can to improve your situation. Try and relax, situations change quickly and you may well find you have a new bestie in town before bub is born.
Your not lame - just honest
Good luck with everything
