Feeling Lonely

This is my first pregnancy and wasn't planned. My husband is so happy and so are family and friends. I'm 15 weeks and it feels like everyone forgot about me. Everyone is busy with their lives. It feels like I always have to message someone to hang out and they are always too busy to hang. Nobody text me or calls me to see how I'm doing. So it's very lonely and it doesn't help because my husband works late.

    I feel very similar. My baby is almost a year old now and I moved to a different state last June. I pretty much have zero friends because everyone doesn't live here or doesn't have kids. I see all of my friends going about their lives and I'm here by myself. It's rough.

    Thanks. :) It's hard when you don't have people who understand and no one else is pregnant.
