But....I miss going out with my friends and getting drunk..in fact getting drunk full stop.
I Know, I know totally selfish and I want my babies more than anything, theres no way I'd risk their health by actually doing it. I just feel in such a lonely place. My other half works evenings and is carrying on at the weekend like nothing has changed. All of my friends social lives revolve around drinking (as mine used to!) and I feel so out of place ALL the time, like I just want to stay in and curl up until babies are born, at which point OH will HAVE to make some changes!!
Please tell me I'm not the only one feeling like a very lonely, very bad person!
I miss drinking and going out socializing with my friends, specially when they're out every weekend then upload the new photos onto facebook !!! But I know very soon I'll have something so precious so not drinking is worth it x
First time round I didn't think I was missing out on a wee drink at all, this time I have had a few cravings for a glass of wine but I never would, high risk as it is so don't want to do anything at all to detriment things
i miss drinking too hun, i think its quite normal. I still occasionally go out with our friends but i am now thier driver which im hating grrrr i think i would rather stay in and do nothing for the next 6 months xxx
I felt exactly like that for the first 12 weeks! We didn't tell anyone until then either, so I not only had to stop the drinking but didn't go out full stop so as not to arouse suspicions. I still do miss a few glasses of wine, but have spent some more quality evenings with my friends and hope they will continue to humour me until the baby is born. Then Hubby and I will have to take it in turns to have one too many!
To be honest I think its more OH than my friends, I feel like I'm an inconvenience to his social life. have tried to talk to him about it, that I could do with a bit more support..time for another try I think!
Susie, they fellas don't really get it - we found out we were expecting on Christmas eve, so Christmas was a dry affair for me, while everyone else (Hubby included) guzzled down the festive spirit and then wondered why I wasn't the life and soul of the party.
For us, it changes the moment we get a bfp. For them, it changes once the baby is in their arms.
My husband did try to cut down his drinking but has gone back to his usual habits already. I plan to get my revenge in some way...
I do kind of feel like this but then I so don't miss the hangovers and then when I do go out and they are all getting drunk and I'm drinking my soda and lime, I feel all smug when I leave as I know I'm not going to be hungover the next day. I miss the standing outside a pub on a lovely sunny day, glass of wine in one hand, fag in the other. But it's not forever and I can soon get back to being outside the pub with a glass of wine (no fags though - don't want to go back to that). Just have to realise that it will be a lot less often that I will be doing that.
