Going it alone???

Hi there! So I am now in my 6th month of my first pregnancy, and I am afraid that my baby's father will not be involved in the rest of the pregnancy. He and I have decided to "take a break" and I have a feeling that this break will somehow be permanent... As upset and frustrated I am about the situation with him, I am desperately in need of something productive to pass my time! I work full time and have little energy for much else :( but I cannot sit around with so much on my mind... This may be a dumb question... but, What would any of you do?? P.S. I do not have many girlfriends, and I lost contact with all of my guy friends when my baby's dad came into my life...

Sorry to hear. :(
I would do crafty things. Crochet, scrapbook, other stuff. Youtube has tutorials. Plus pinterest is addictive! Lol.

Lol thank you! I truly do love to do anything and everything crafty! I currently have a million and one projects in the works!! I just seem to have the same problem, with too much time alone to think!!  :( lol I guess I really just need to be patient... And get out to meet pepole! But where do single "normal" girls go to make new friends? In my situation living in Utah, I have learned that there are 2 main groups of girls... The ones that party( that is all thet really care about), and the ones that are married by my age, that would judge me... I feel like I am stuck somewhere in the middle, with no one who understands...

I hear you! It can be rough meeting new folks. It may sound corny, but It's great if you can find an online service. Here on the east coast, there are groups that organize fun outings for single people: meals, music events, outdoor stuff. Try google and see if you can find anything like that. If not, try it another way. Since you like crafty stuff, see if there are any online communities around that. See if you can connect with any specific people near you and then maybe arrange to meet up as a group at some crafty event. A friend of a friend might be someone you really hit it off with! Good luck. :-)

This might sound stupid, but maybe the gym? Even if it's just a little while to walk on a treadmill.... If you make a friend there you can use that friendship to get back in shape after baby is born.good luck!

i would suggest reaching out and maybe trying to reconnect with a couple of friends.  Do you know anyone who has kids?  it couldn't hurt to try!  otherwise, maybe go to Meetup.com and look for groups in your area of moms/moms-to-be that you can connect with.  Another good option (if you're in the US) is looking into the MOMS club.  it's mostly for stay at home moms, but they can probably help point you in the right direction as far as where to go next.  good luck! i do hope you find a support system!

I agree with reaching out to your old friends. You'll never know if the friendships can be salvaged if you don't try. The working out suggestion is a good one too cause it'll keep you in shape and maybe you'll meet someone else there to become friends or work out buddies with.
