    Hello lovelies!

    This is my second confirmed pregnancy, but first one to last. *fingers crossed*

    I'm new to everything! The growing pains. The now green poops!

    I feel like no one talks about the ”weird/bad” things during pregnancy. Am I the only one who thinks so?

    Estimate due date May 8th.

    I kind of agree! I think it’s like births though, nobody really chats about it to people who haven’t done it, and when you haven’t done it or aren’t doing it you aren’t as interested because it doesn’t apply to you at that time.

    So my friends and I have talked about the weird bits of pregnancy (and birth) but only after we’ve all had kids, if you see what I mean?

    That makes sense. I did have friends tell me the common thing likes the baby pressing on your bladder or they couldn't keep down their favorite foods.

    I'm the first one of my main group of friends to be pregnant. I'm having a feeling I won't be seeing them for a while because they probably won't come to see us (the baby & me) judging by their reactions.

    Oh no, I really hope that isn’t true and they surprise you. Sadly, it happened like that for me. First to have a baby and when my eldest was 2 months old they just suddenly cut all contact, and I never saw them again. We’d been friends for 10 years...

    but you know what, I made much better friends through a breastfeeding group who I am so thankful for. So even though it may happen, you may make even better friends x

    One asked if I'm going to keep it. The other is willing to pay for it. They claim to be supportive but let's see how it goes.

    But I hope I have the same luck! I do want to take breastfeeding classes. All the mothers I know struggled with it. Plus like you said it would be a great place to meet other mothers.

    Gosh, those are some realllllly supportive friends, I’m sorry you’ve had to deal with comments like that.

    If you plan to breastfeed definitely lots of research beforehand is key! Finding out what normal feeding looks like for a breastfed baby will really help reassure you. I’ve breastfed my 3 for 2+ years each with very few issues, I’ve been lucky, but I’ve also armed myself with lots of knowledge and known where to look for help if needed. And I met lots of like minded mums along the way!

    I think sometimes ladies get scared when a friend is expecting, I dont understand it but.. I had one friend tell me I should nip it in the bud and another pregnancy I had a friend get mad at me for not adopting (we are both adopted but it was still out of nowhere). Maybe they are just scared of you moving on without them. Congratulations btw!
