So would you like being pregnant the same time as a close friend or another family member or would you prefer to be the only one pregnant at the time?

After seeing my sister and cousin pregnant last year together, due one day apart, I definatly do not want to be pregnant the same time as anyone else close. Everyone was always comparing them and now always comparing their babies. This would be annoying to me. I am a little worried my sister might try for another child next year like me and after waiting years to have another child I want a nice experience.

I don't think I'd care either way, But I don't expect a friend or family member to be pregnant the same time as me. I don't know anyone whos thinking of ttc anytime soon.

I would like to have a pregnancy buddy. That way I won't feel so left out when I can't do certain things.

I don't think I would mind having someone close pregnant at the same time. It could be kinda fun, and you'd have someone to talk to who was going through the same stuff.

I guess I wouldn't mind if it was a girl friend. But family I would hate. Especially my sister because she is always trying to be better than me. When I had my kids she later said she was mad because she felt like it should be her turn first because she is older. Well lucky she did not have kids before me because she divorced twice! When she finally did get pregnant last year she was constantly calling me to tell me every little thing about her pregnancy and show me all the things she was buying. It got annoying after a while.

I got pregnant 3 months before SIL (DH's sister) did with our first. It sorta sucked, probably because we're not that close. They were almost exactly 3 months apart. (Brynlee July 27 and Cousin October 26.) After the babies were born, all people did was compare the two. They still do.

My bff got pregnant when I was pregnant and her baby was born 6 months after Brynlee. I think it would have been nice if she got pregnant earlier in my pregnancy so we could go through it together (even though she lives out of town).

My youngest sister is pregnant right now. I think it would suck (for the other person) to have a BTDT mom pregnant at the same time as a FTM. The FTM should get to experience all of the stuff by herself or with another FTM....I know I am reading way too much into this. LOL

I love having other friends, family, and co-workers pregnant at the same time! It makes it so much more fun to go through (for me anyways) but it is true that everyone is always comparing everything... it just doesn't bother me if that happens.
