Becoming slightly neurotic....

Are there any other mummy's-to-be out there that are turning into slightly-crazy-pregnant-ladies, or is it just me? I'm a casual browser on here and love reading a lot of the posts but am really envious of other seemingly very 'together' preggo ladies! I'm 23+4 with what will be my first baby (4 MC's over the last 2 and a bit years, so super excited about this sticky little bean) but starting to feel a bit like I've not got the faintest clue what I'm letting myself in for!

I had this glorious vision that when I finally got pregnant I'd be having chatting with my mates that've popped out sprogs about their funny parenting fails, and being able to ask stupid questions about 'B -shaped baby bumps' and 'is it ok that I've just eaten 5 jars of pickled onions in one sitting'... But they've all apparently turned into 'that parent', and instead of being able to have a lighthearted chat with them about baby stuff and ask silly things, they've decided to bombard me with exactly how I should look after Bubs and telling me how rubbish they think I'll be at certain things... (I've not got the greatest relationship with my midwife either - something I'm a little bit gutted about as I hear all these lovely stories of supportive midwives and great appointments etc - but I find her a bit patronising and 'shouty' - and instead of being treated like a 29 year old, revert back to feeling like a naughty teenager!)

So I'm sort of left with no one to share my slightly bat-shit-crazy thoughts with, and feel like I'm miles behind all the other mums I see that seem totally prepared for baby - when I don't even know where to start!

Anyone in the same boat that wants a neurotic baby buddy!? gringrin
