All I see on instagram and facebook is pictures of my old friends on senior trips to Cancun and Disneyland and shit with their friends. I feel like I should have that. I should be there with them. But the entire time we were in high school I thought I was so much better than them and cooler because I was always partying with older guys and drinking and doing drugs. I thought they were wasting their teenage years.



And now they're on the beach and I'm sitting at home pregnant.

It's hard i'm sure but on the upside.. you might be done having kids young and enjoy your 40's while others still have young kids to run after.. hmmhmm ME! You can always find a positive in every situation... But the beach does sound nice...

You can go to the beach while pregnant. I did at 33/4wks. You're life isn't over just because you had/have kids.

Goodluck..it gets harder when you actually have the baby. But raising a child is far more rewarding than partying and going out.

I somewhat feel the same way. I hardly have any friend ATM.
So all I really do is work PT take care of the kids. I am 25, and haven't had a party stage since my teens.
I also stopped hanging out with people.

But...it takes time, soon enough I will have friends again.

You just have to look at it, that your in a different stage in your life than they are. You should try going to mommy and me play groups, or join one on the internet, meet some people who have kids, or are about to, and have fun.

Hey now! You still got a lot of good years left! Go to college, get a good job...you'll marry the love of your life...possibly have more babies when you're ready...go on vacation with the family you made. Create a better life for you, don't worry about what you can't change now. It gets better!

I think I'm just feeling lonely. I discovered that the only thing I really have in common with my "friends" is partying. I just feel like I changed so much. I never expected to be one of "those" girls.

Agreed. I'm 24 and since having my son I have no friends. it gets lonely at times. I never get dates with my husband ever. But We are currently trying to conceive our second, so obviously its not enough to scare us away from having more ;) OP you have to just look at things in a different light. When I feel sad about people my age going out with their bf's, husabands,friends, and having a good time, I just think of what i'm doing at home..raising my beautiful boy, making memories with him. I'm so lucky to have him, and since I had him at a young age..my liver will be healthier than all these people going out every weekend! ha! I figure when my husband and I are in our 40s we'll be living it up then!
