We went through this w/ DH’s friends.  They were all having babies right around the time that we got engaged.  It definitely made for a different social dynamic once all of the babies started arriving, but we adjusted.  There were more brunches, fewer dinners out, and we started hanging out more with our other childlless friends.  Now a couple of years later, we’re catching all of DH’s friends on round two.  We’re expecting baby #1, and many of them are having their second.  So in the end we don’t really feel like we were left in the dust by too much… plus we can benefit from all of their expertise with child-rearing.

We’re in the same situation: just married, but we have a lot of friends starting to have kids. We are not there yet. I have been a little bummed recently because one of my good friends started hanging out with a girl who we can’t stand (she has admitted to it, too) only because they both had babies within months of each other. It wouldn’t be a big deal except this other girl is kind of one of those toxic friends who only likes to gossip about people. I just sometimes feel like the people with kids have their own “baby club” and they don’t really have time for friends without kids, but I’m thinking it will eventually pass once they want to have nights out again. We’ll see, but I know how you feel.

@CherryWaves:  It’s true.   We are not necessarily ready for a baby, but it still gets at me a bit when I see so many posts or whatever have you about being pregnant.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m very excited for everyone.  FI’s friend and his wife are finally expecting.  We’re super stoked for them as they’ve been trying for years.

@CherryWaves:  We’ve still got plenty of friends who aren’t preggers (actually, still plenty of folks who are still single) — but! NINE people in my department have had/will be having babies this year. Babies everywhere!

Tell me about it.  🙁  You can’t escape it on the website either.  We found out at noon on Dec 1 that my husband is sterile, so it’s been really hard.  I have heard 15 pregnancy annoucements since we found out too, one a week is average.
