You are just more aware of pregnancies and babies now that pregnancy is on your personal radar. It’s like when you start thinking about buying a new car, and suddenly you start noticing whatever car you are thinking about everywhere that you go.

The best thing that you can do for yourself is find ways to relax about it. The more hyper aware you are, the harder the whole process is.

I swear there is a new pregnancy announcement everyday on my Facebook. I’m not TTC and I’ve noticed that tons of people are pregnant so it’s not just you lol. A lot of my friends are having either a Spring or Summer baby.

Stephville:  I posted about this the other day in the waiting to TTC thread.  

2 girls at work and 2 friends announced their pregnancies last week.  And 3 others had their babies in the last 10 days.  

I feel like we are the only couple who aren’t expecting/new parents.  (We aren’t.  There are lots of our friends who aren’t trying yet either or don’t ever plan to have kids.)

I saw a couple FB posts on Thanksgiving announcing new pregnancies they were thankful for.

I’m not even at the stage of my life where I’m even thinking about TTC, but seriously everyone on my FB feed is pregnant. It’s crazy! I’m in my very early 20s so it’s just crazy to me how many people have kids/are pregnant that I know. 

 

Disclaimer: I don’t mean that in a bad way. It’s just interesting how people can live such different lives at the same age.

I am pregnant right now, so I know I am watching for it, but I can easily say this is the most pregnancy announcements Ive ever seen. In the last 6 weeks:

1 friend gave birth to a boy

1 cousin gave birth to a girl

1 cousin announced her pregnancy

2 friends announced their pregnancies

2 coworkers announced their pregnancies

That is so abnormal. It feels like everyone I know is either TTC or pregnant.

Stephville:  AOriver:  I agree! My MOH is due some time in February and I know 3 other women who are due around the time of my wedding in May. I have a lot of friends and family that are married and having children, but this is the first time so many of them are due around the same time! And that’s not even counting all my FB friends that are pregnanat or about to give birth. I can’t wait till we get married and start TTC.

sostobe:  I feel the same way, and it isn’t true for us, either.

Before I was engaged, I felt like everyone else was already married.  Now that I’m married, I realize that I have many friends who are single.  Oh, and the single people don’t have kids, either!
