So..I am at that age that most of my friends are married and starting to have children. It used to be this celebratory thing, where when you found it..it was like "yay". Now its just plain annoying. I am losing all my friends to the "nesting syndrome"..or at least that is what I call it. I am not sure why female humans do this but I have noticed it now in 3 different friends over different years. When they get pregnant, they just go completely off the grid. They don't want to hang out, they don't update or call, (Ok with exception to the random Facebook post about having swollen feet or some other pregnancy discomfort). I have lost one friend completely..because she never seemed to recover from the "nesting syndrome", and others become slightly more distant. I mean, sure, I am going to have kids in about 1 to 2 years here..once we get more settled in, but I don't imagine just cutting my friends off. In fact, One would think you would want your friends over more to chat about it and eat ice cream. Is it a temporary thing that once you have a child or your first child, you just want your privacy? Or does your whole mentality change, that you don't feel like friends are that important anymore? I don't get it. Can someone explain it to me?
