Anyone else experience this?

So, when I found out I was pregnant, and it was safe to tell our friends, family, etc., I noticed that some of our friends just stopped wanting to hang out. I thought it was really weird, since in particular, with one of these couples, he is my husband's cousin and his wife, and we always used to hang out with them. Since I've been pregnant, I think we've seen them twice. Those two times were at a wake and a funeral. I have also experienced that with other people too. Not sure why that is. I know that there are some people who are not interested in having kids, but I'm sure all of their friends are not childless....hmm.....

I guess it upsets me, because I never thought some of these people would act like that...

      Do you know if any of them are struggling to conceive? That was my first thought because if they are then they may be struggling with the fact you are pregnant and they are not.

      Guess that rules out that idea. Strange, I mean this is your first child. People are weird sometimes.

        I experience this as well. But it's my boyfriend's friends. Whom are all males, single, bachelors. So it's to be expected. I've been trying to go to dinner outtings with them but I've noticed that I just can't 'hang' because I get tired by 930. Plus, it's different now that I don't drink. And usually they wind up at a bar. I end up wanting to pass out at the bar table next to my glass of water.

          Having children changes just about everything including your relationships with other people. I think some people like Mara Gee said think you just won't have time for them anymore. They are under the impression that life just stops once you decide to have kids. Which is totally false. I found some of my friends and I just don't spend as much time together because now we have less in common because our lives are now so different. But I also found that once i had her i made new friends, who did have kids and did understand it was a whole new world of other parents.

          I still have some of my old friends from before but i gained a lot of new too!
