friend group

A little background: my husband has had two best friends since middle school.  Both of those guys were best men in our wedding.  Lately, the two of them have been spending a lot of time together, and my husband gets left out fairly often.

Yesterday, both of their wives announced pregnancies; both due within a couple weeks of each other.  So they will be "pregnancy buddies!"  I mostly just feel bad for my husband.  The two dudes who will have babies around the same time will now have even less in common with my husband (one has a three year old already).  We already only see them about twice a year; I think this will only decrease now.

It just makes me sad how people exclude us because we don't have kids.  Like we don't already feel isolated enough.  I get tired of chasing them and trying to set up a time to hang out.  Eventually, I will give up.


  1. That sucks, I notiee my husband and his friends are drifting apart too :(

  2. I hear you... this is basically what happened to us with dh's cousin & family. They live two blocks away from us -- he was an usher at our wedding & their two little girls (now grown up) were like nieces to us, I adored them. I'm not sure if there were other reasons besides our childlessness. But after I lost my one & only pregnancy, we saw less & less of them -- and we got tired of always being the ones to call & propose a get-together (which was usually turned down). Today we see then at the same weddings & funerals we see everyone else at. Sad. :(
