So, lately its dawned on me. I am 19 years old and 13-14 weeks pregnant and even though, my husband and I live together I find myself being rather depressed. I don't really have any friends due to working full time and then going straight home for the last 4 months. Its hard finding friends my age when everyone my age is into drinking and staying out late. I just cant do that anymore!
I really would like to find some other teen girls that I could talk to and become friends with. I don't really mind if your in california or not. Also, I don't mind how far along you are. Age isn't an issue as well.
Anyway, let me know and tell me a little about yourself.
Heres a little about me:
I work in retail at Staples where I met my fiance'. He was in the Navy for five years before we met and he's a super sweet guy. I used to compete in hunter/jumpers (Horseback riding) before I got pregnant. I find it really hard to not ride anymore :[
Hey lady! I'm 20, live in LA, and about 4 weeks and 5 days. I DEFINITELY feel you on being lonely-- I live with my OH (but he's been on a work trip the last week--which has made me SO lonely) but I work full-time and only recently moved here so don't know too many people. I work for GreenPeace doing frontline (which is canvassing/fund-raising/whatever) and I love it (its how I met my OH too) but both of us aren't making enough money to start a family doing it. Its been hectic trying to figure out what we're going to do but luckily my family is fairly supportive. I think we're both going to move back to San Diego (where both our families are) and then I can do bookkeeping work for my parents' business again and he can work in construction with my dad (both of which will pay very well). YAY. AND then we'll be closer to support from the family.
Anyways I rambled on, like usual. But I'd love to talk more and get to know you! xxoo
I'm 21, but I was 19 when I was pregnant with my first and I did realise that some of my 'friends' started dropping like flies when they found out. Luckily now most of my friends are also mothers or pregnant themselves so we can relate to one another. Baby groups/parenting groups are good ways to meet people in the same boat
Anyway about me... So yeah I'm 21, I'll be 22 when this one arrives and Jake is coming up 19 months. I live with my OH and I work part time at a supermarket on a deli counter, and I'm also finishing my degree which is hard work I will probably continue to work part time until both children are older and then I'll maybe get a 5 day a week job somewhere (that's if things go to plan anyway)
I'm Abby, 19 and 35 weeks pregnant with a little boy.
All my friends have vanished now. I get a few 'Oh we should meet up before the baby is here' comments, but when i try to organise something, it never happens.
I'm pretty much always floating around here on my phone, so if you ever want to chat, feel free to pm me.
I know whatcha mean about being alone. Once I found out I was pregnant I dropped out of regular high school and went to the alternative school and got my GED so that I can go to community college next year. So I don't really have any friends to hang out with - they all say they want to hang out, but how an I supposed to when all they do is party???
I also don't have a job because no one wants to hire a big, pregnant, 16 year old! But that part is okay with me.
So pretty much the only person I ever see is my OH (who I live with) and my sisters.
But I'm Marissa, I'm 16, and 26 weeks with a little boy - PM me if you ever want to talk
I am in a very similar situation! My OH and I live together and I work full time and barely see my old friends anymore. They are all still going out all the time and getting drunk/taking drugs etc. They will message me here and there but never invite me to do stuff anymore because I can't drink.
Sometimes I get lonely but my OH and I are pretty much best friends and I would rather hang out with him on the weekend than any of them to be honest lol. This forum is good to chat to other girls in your situation so don't be afraid to vent your feelings!
hey, im gemma, im from the UK and im also 19 and im 34 weeks pregnant with a little girl we're naming Abbie
i also have a 14 month old daughter named Kacie.
i have the same issue with friends working and spending alot of time drinking.. as a mum 11pm is now what i class as a 'late night' and as my daughter is in bed by 7pm going out isnt really an option (even though i couldnt drink anyway).
i live with my partner who ive been with for 3 and a half years but i do find i feel lonely alot of the time also. im also beginning to feel as though the 'spark' in our relationship has gone, although we do still get on well, as im so busy with DD during the day we dont really tend to speak as much and in the evenings im so tired now im getting further along that most nights im in bed and asleep before he comes to bed and because im in bed so early he spends alot of time on video games etc.. in all fairness hes on them alot in the day too, which i guess is why we dont talk as much during the day. iv tried to explain to him how i feel but theres not alot we can really do about it i guess.
i also dont live close to my family and as i dont have alot of money or drive i cant travel to them very often. i see my mum once a week usually for an hour or two in town but with the way iv been feeling lately i do feel like this isnt enough.
i guess i just crave a bit of decent adult conversation. but i do find that baby and bump is a great outlet sometimes and the girls on here are amazing at giving you the feed back and making you feel as though your not alone.
