I don't want to go out!

Before I got pregnant I was quite a party girl, loved to go out drinking, eating with husband and friends - usually 4 or more nights a week. Now I've had a personality transplant!! I just want to stay in and potter about, I have zero desire to leave the house. Is anyone else finding this!?

When I was pregnant with my first I bawled my eyes out because I couldn't go out and get drunk. Then it got to the point where I was that tired I couldn't be arsed! That was back in 2013. I've still not been drunk since because 3. Months after having DD I got caught pregnant again. It's good that you don't want to go out, your priorities have shifted and that's normal. Even after baby was born I couldn't be bothered going out , I was too busy being a mum smile

Hormones change you! I knew something was up when we were on holiday and I felt homesick - I have backpacked alone on 5 continents and never once felt a pang - all of a sudden, in a very comfortable and lovely hotel in rural Greece all I wanted to do was go home and watch telly! I was terrified it meant that having a baby would rob me if my wanderlust which is a big part of my personality - I'm now 38 weeks and it's back: bff had to explain to me that I might not actually want to go camping this summer yesterday and DP just put the kibosh on driving round Jordan next spring! You'll be back to being you soon enough smile

Ah I felt so happy when I saw your title! Im 8wks & for the past 3 have only been out of the house to go to work (& attend family stuff I couldn't get out of). Just want to hibernate close to where my food & bed is grin I'm told the energy will be back soon.

I'm the same too! My OH and I are going on holiday with some friends in 3 weeks which was booked before I was pregnant. I had a tantrum the other night saying I didn't want to go!

I want to go out, but without a bit of alcohol I'm too socially awkward to enjoy socialising.

I was like this when pregnant. I just wanted to be at home!

toohardtothinkofaname I am 31 weeks - it's got worse! It's not that I am tired (but I am) more just want to be here!

Misstwister, thankfully it'll be autumn/winter when I'm in my later stages so perfect excuse for staying in the house in my pjs. SO EXCITEDgrin

I'm the same, going out sucks without alcohol. I'm sick of watching my mates get pissed and being the designated driver
