    Default Left out

    This is going to sound so petty and stupid but does anyone else feel left out now that you have a baby? I am pretty close with my family and since DS was born it feels like everyone has been ignoring us, or doesn't want to be around us anymore. We don't get invited to the movies anymore, we don't get invited over to people's houses anymore, no one comes here anymore. My text messages don't even get replies anymore. I don't think I've done anything wrong and I don't think I've changed personality. DS is not the only thing I talk about. Although I probably won't go to the movies coz I'm still not ready to leave DS, DH might like to go while I stay home with DS, I just feel like we're being left out now. I know they don't hate the baby and I don't expect them to dote over him every time they see him so I don't know what it is. It just makes me sad coz we were a very close family before. anyone get those feelings or am I just being paranoid and overly emotional still.

    Maybe they think they are giving you some space, some time to spend with your DS. i doubt its because they dont want to see you or DS!

    Thanks for the hug Loco, sending one back to you also. It's hard to know what other people are thinking. Just wish we weren't left out, I don't talk to my dads family any more because they kept forgetting about me once my dad had another child so rather than being hurt all the time I chose to take myself out of the equation for them now I don't want to do that with my mums family also.

    Northern - I've thought maybe that's it but the text messages that are not being replied to are me inviting them over, the invites via text is not a new thing, it's just the easiest way for us all to communicate these days but mine seem to be ignored now.

    I do love DS and DH but it just feels a bit lonely now somehow. :-(
