Do you have a lot of friends who are moms? Do you find that being high-risk pregnant impacts your relationship with them (for good or bad)?

My friends are about 50% mom and 50% childless. None of my friends have been through a high risk pregnancy. It has not really had any impact on our relationships. I am not the type to get p-oed is someones is boo-hooing over something they dislike about their "normal" pregnancy. Everyone has the right to whine sometimes. Also, all of my friends know my risks and know what pregnancy means for me, so they are very understanding.

most of my friends are moms and they know I give myself injections for a clotting disorder. They're all supportive and always ask how I'm doing, do I like my doctor....all the typical questions any pregnant woman gets. Like Liz said, everyone, normal pregnancy or not, gets to complain and it doesn't bother me. Pregnancy, for the most part, is hard. We get tired, uncomfortable, have to pee all the time, etc. It doesn't bother me. I look at it like a bonding experience! lol

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

I only have one friend who is a mom and the rest are childless. I guess no one treats me any differently. They are just excited that I'm having a baby and ask me all the normal pregnant lady questions.

I actually have a few friends who were just acquaintances before we had Jim, but are now good friends because they had pregnancy complications too. Like the woman who will be our doula--she lost twins because of a PPROM, and her daughter has a disability and has spent a lot of time in the hospital, so she gets what we went through with Jim in a way that a lot of other friends don't, and she's super understanding about the stress of a high-risk pregnancy. Being high-risk hasn't driven me father away from anyone either, which I think is pretty cool.
