Kind of a lurker on this board, I guess Im just looking for someone who is in a similar situation...or advice.
My husband and I are both 34, don't have kids. LOVE our life together and are about 95% sure that we will not ever have kids.
All of our friends have kids now or are pregnant. Never bothered me really, I was always there for them, went to their baby showers, offered to babysit, bought their kids nice things. Always tried to stay in contact, however one by one we slowly drifted apart, for I guess obvious reasons, we didnt have much in common at that point anymore.
Not long ago, our closest couple friends became pregnant with their first child. I have remained in close contact, have been supportive, even went to the 3d ultrasound with them. As the pregnancy goes on, they too are starting to drift away despite my efforts to stay in touch.
I guess Im just venting, but Im finding myself becoming sad and depressed that I may be losing these people as friends too. Now my H and I are the odd ones out.
I really just miss my friends. I guess life changes and you have to adapt but it just makes me sad. On top of that, I worry every day that I am making the right decision by not having kids and it haunts me.
Has anyone else ever been in this situation? Im trying to branch out and make new friends, but its just not the same. Does it change? Am I silly to feel this way? Bleh,
Thanks for reading.
