Through it all I was being selfish and lonely and wanted all of the things she had, a house, great husband, beautiful baby... I had the problem not her, of course I made it seem like the other way around. Don't feel bad for making the right decision in your life.
- It is SO hard to not talk about my pregnancy, baby, baby stuff and baby plans for more than 5 minutes. My baby is all I think about. He is, plain and simple, my life right now. For non-mom friends it is completely foreign speak and they have no way of relating.
- Not talking about baby was great too! When I could stop focusing on my selfish ass for a minute and really care about my friend and her un-pregnant life, I escaped from my reality and lived through hers. I don’t mean that I was happier living her life, but that I was happy living vicariously through my non-pregnant friend's life. I still have to remember to take time for me, and not focus 100% on baby, especially even before he gets here! For the non-moms it’s best if I spend some time being a non-mom too.
