  • Perhaps you can talk to the friend who is always around you? Just explain to them that it has nothing to do with them, but you both want some alone time. Make sure they know that you just want some bonding time between the two of you before the baby is born. Hopefully your friend will understand and back off a little. Let them know you appreciate it too.

  • Ask your BF for alone time and explain why you want it without any of the friends hanging out with you to. And ask him to talk to the friends and say no when you have made plans. If he wont talk to the friends about saying no when you have made plans, then maybe you could gently explain to the friends why you cant invite them along to share time with you.  If they dont understand your need for one on one time with the BF, then they are just selfish.

  • When your friend isn't there lock the doors and turn off your phone. Go lock yourselves in your bedroom and spend some time alone. Try taking a walk too. Believe me, when your baby gets here people will run like cockroaches for whatever reason. They will be up your butt at first and then you will see no one for a while.

  • You have to make that time. and when you do, make the best of it. Even when the baby is born, you'll still have time. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Enjoy each other!!!
