Everyone else having babies!

So, I have a pretty large "Air Force Family" here in okc, where we are stationed. Most of my friends have one or two kids. Most have like 1.5year olds. This week 3 of them have announced they are either due in April or May with baby 2 or 3. I am very happy for them, but kinda like they are stealing my thunder and that my baby announcement wont be as exciting- it will just be "another baby!?" even though its our first. Idk. I hate thinking that way or feeling a bit like they are stealing my thunder, bc regardless all babies are miracles.


Also, I think when I found out 2 of them are having April babies, and I had my m/c in July and would have had an April baby- so it stings a bit.


Am I crazy?!

I completely understand where you are coming from!


When I knew DH & and were trying and the first few weeks after our BFP I was nervous my SIL would announce they were pregnant with their second.


Every baby is special but every momma deserves the joys of first time motherhood :)

I know what you mean. But think of it this way, you LO will have many playmates! And you can easily talk to your friends about the same experiences you are going through together at the same time. I know we crave that attention but once the LO arrives, I would seek out that support!

I know what you mean but trust me none of that will matter when babe is here. Like dorkmeetsned said. What will matter is the advice and support those seasoned moms can provide! P,us for sure yours will be special to those around you bc I bet they've been wondering when you would join the club!

My maid of honor text me the other day, "Bartin's #2 is on his/her way and will be here April 28th!"  That's 5 days before my due date and honestly, part of me was like, dang it, can't I get this moment to myself?  But then I was like, well at least I"ll have someone doing this with me and she is my BF, so.......get over it green eyed monster.  But I know what you mean.  It happens to all of us!
