Are any of your close friends or family members pregnant? Are they due around the same time as you? Do you enjoy sharing this experience with them?

My sister in law is pregnant and due in February. I think we have this back and forth jealousy thing going on (more her than me ) since it's the first child for both of us, but ultimately, we think it's really cool.

My other sister in law should have been pregnant right now, but she had a miscarriage earlier this year. It's hard because she can hardly look at me, and I try not to talk about it, but it's just so hard for her.

I have several friends that are pregnant, but they're all in the States or don't live close to me. I love being pregnant with people I'm close to though and being able to share our excitement and our complaints!

I love having all you as belly buddies though!

It feels like almost all of my friends were recently or currently pregnant. I was just saying about a few months ago that I felt left out Not anymore haha My best friend from high school had her baby 3 weeks early back in September. Another friend had her baby on 11/11/11. My best friend from middle school is due in February. Another high school friend is due in May. They all live some distance away so we don't really get to see each other, but we stay in contact through FB. Most of them either are pregnant or just had their first child and I am on my THIRD So they are the ones coming to me for advice which I find pretty cool. It is fun to finally have friends with kids so I can share back and forth some experiences.

I don't have any friends IRL who are prego or at least not that I know. My sister is prego and due in Feb. I would have been due a week before her if I hadn't miscarried earlier this year. I would have loved to be due at the same time, but now it's working out better that I'm not. She and her family live her now, but they are moving and my parents will go help her after her baby is born. They'll be able to come here when my baby is born and help with all the kids when I need it.

I have a cousin that is about a month behind me. Her and her hubby live very close to us, so I'm so excited to share this experience with her. She was worried I would be upset that she was stealing my thunder, but I'm a more the merrier person.

My SIL is pregnant (living in Argentina) and my BFF, also from Argentina JUST found out today she is pregnant!!

I am SOOOO over the moon for my BFF!!!
She had a molar pregnancy in January and had a horrible time (even had to get surgery) and wasn´t able to TTC until now. Since they don´t sell OPK´s there, I just sent her a bunch with another friend who just left and a couple of sensitive HPT´s (again, the ones they have are 50 or 100 mlU so you won´t find out until AF is late).
Well, looks like she won´t need the OPKs after all!
She called me this morning and we cried like idiots for half an hour
So far only her DH and I know (well, and you but she doesn´t know you, haha)

Nope everyone I know that I'm close to has already had babies this year. My cousin who used to be more like a sister had her first in May another cousin had her 1st and 2nd in August a friend from high school had her first in September and a long time family friend had her first in October the same day I found out I was pregnant this time. Computer though is a completely different story a mommy group I've been a member of for the past 9 years is quickly doing it's part to make sure that every month next year is covered by atleast one person having a baby.

Let's see, a couple of close friends had babies recently within the past couple of months, one close friend is due in January, my sister had her baby 3 weeks ago, a couple of people on FB have recently announced pg's, my cousin (who has been trying for 4 years with a couple of losses in there) is pg and due 6 weeks before me. I would have been due in March - one of DH's cousin's is due in March, not that we are close with them, but I had a m/c in August. Anyways, I like being pg with others, it's nice to complain and talk about what is going on I will admit, after the loss I had a lot of jealousy towards pg people, including my sister, but I got past that and was always happy for her it's just hard when you have a loss and see others with what you want. Anyways, I am so excited to be able to be pg with my cousin - yay

A very, very close friend of mine is due in January with a baby girl, which works out since DD was born in January. I can give her ALL DD's smaller clothing if this one is a boy..and probably still, since they'll be completely different seasons.
She's so tiny and adorable
She also has a son just a few months younger than DD, and this baby will be a few months younger than her daughter so it's pretty neat We switched this time.

Then I have another girl I know who I don't speak to often is 6 weeks ahead of me in pregnancy, exactly I believe.

Pregnancies around here seem to happen in groups.

I really WISH I had a close friend who was pregnant (for the first time) along with me. I have 3 BFF's who are really disappointing me right now. Well mainly just one of the 3. All 3 of my BFFs are BTDT mommies, they have 7 kids between the 3 of them. And the one friend, who I usually talk to every day, all day long through email during work, went through the same struggles I did when TTC. It took her 3 years so she knew very well how hard it is. She was super excited for me when I got pg, but she is now "annoyed" when I talk about my pregnancy and ask her questions. I asked her about breastfeeding the other day and she was completely annoyed because SHE thought it was way too soon to be asking such a question. So I've pretty much stopped talking to her altogether. If she wants to know anything about my pregnancy, she can ask. And she hasn't. It makes me so sad. I've talked to my other (of the 3) friend about it and she doesn't understand it either. And she has been great, she listens to everything and has answered any question I've asked and even gone maternity shopping with me. So at least I have her. I'm just so disappointed in the other one who I thought I was closer with. There is a couple that DH and I are pretty good friends with and they're also sort of newlyweds and are going to start TTC soon. I wish so much that she was pg with me!

Sorry...didn't mean to hijack, I should've probably made my own post about this, it's something that's been really bothering me and kinda of ruining my pregnancy experience a little.

Nope. Most of my friends are long done having babies. Matter of fact most have kids going into college. No I don't feel old My SIL was pregnant but miscarried and I don't think has any plans to try again, since it wasn't planned and my brother really wasn't thrilled. So I'm all alone in this.

A majority of my friends are either done having kids or far from starting. I do know someone ttc so I'm keeping my eye on her for signs

My best friend is about 27 weeks pregnant with a boy. It's her second and has been a hard pregnancy (vasa previa) with a lot of worry about him, but so far it's all ok. I was able to give her all my little boy clothes since my last was born in Feb, and she will have to have a c-section at about 35wks with this one, so she will have him at almost the same time I did. All the clothes should fit right on track.

My sister is due April 27 with a baby, but she is giving it up for adoption. It's a good thing though, everyone is very happy about it. No sadness. It's best for baby.

When I had my older son, my SIL and I were only 3 weeks apart... I loved having someone to share all of the pregnancy stuff with... We were really close so it was a lot of fun...

One of my BFF is trying for a baby, and she is officially late, but still not testing positive... We are both so anxious to see that BFP... We will both be bummed if AF is playing tricks!
