I'm the first one in my social group to get pregnant. I talk to my friends on a daily basis through WhatsApp and see them all in person at least once a week.

As it's my first pregnancy, I'm very excited. I can't stop talking about it. I'm so lucky, so happy, so fortunate & so privileged. My baby feels so special, like I know my baby will do something incredible in this world - I can feel it!!

And yet, my friends have started to turn on me. They've become very jealous. They make snide remarks, they mimick me & give me side eye. I feel like my pregnancy is the butt of all the jokes.

I can't help that I've been so blessed and so fortunate to get pregnant out of my friends first. I went to college, uni, started a professional career first & got married first. I've just always been up step ahead - I can't help it!!

Would it be unreasonable to sit my friends down and ask them to stop being so negative? I want to ask them to support me better and help me out.

Purplepicnic Wed 19-Apr-17 21:27:22

You sound like a loon.

Underthemoonlight Wed 19-Apr-17 21:27:30

You sound exhausting

MiddleClassProblem Wed 19-Apr-17 21:27:50

Reverse. If not, they're not jealous you're just annoying by harping on.

No not at all. You can't help it if you're so much better at life than they are hmm

I was thinking gf, but reverse might be right.

On the off chance this is real life isn't a race so you aren't one step ahead, and continuously going on about your pregnancy is dull as fuck, if you continue I very much doubt your friends will be an issue as you'll stop being invited anywhere.

Calm down, you were a person with opinions and thoughts and feelings before you got pregnant, a baby shouldn't change that.

Imagine a friend who collects stamps.
Everything they talk about is stamps, stamps, stamps.
You don't know anything about stamps though...

That's what you're doing to your friends.

As for being one step ahead, that's great for you, remember that when you release how lonely being a step ahead can get.

Um. Oh. My. God.

Awww, bless wink

I mean this kindly but your pregnancy is most exciting to you.. as it should be!
If your friends aren't in the same place wanting babies, they may well find it too much to talk about your baby all day.
I am pregnant (after a long journey!) but will only talk about it when asked... it's for me and my husband to get excited over, everyone else will be excited when our twins are here.
Are you still taking an interest in your friends' lives???

Seriously. SERIOUSLY?!

Nellooo Wed 19-Apr-17 21:30:05

Your darling baby will be no more special than either of mine or anyone else's. Best get that straight or you'll have no mummy friends whatsoever.

BlondeBecky1983 Wed 19-Apr-17 21:30:12

šŸ¤£ Definitely a reverse!

Oakmaiden Wed 19-Apr-17 21:30:44

Very off topic - sorry Op - but what does GF mean??? I keep seeing it on threads... I kindof get the sentiment behind it, but what does it actually stand for?

Reow Wed 19-Apr-17 21:30:49

Um.... biscuit

Fruitcocktail6 Wed 19-Apr-17 21:31:23

Reverse! No one that stuck up would have friends to begin with.

SheSaidHeSaid Wed 19-Apr-17 21:31:28

Always been one step ahead......

Get over yourself
