Does anyone else find that outside of their family they actually don't do anything? I'm currently 24 weeks along with my third child, I'm a SAHM to 3.5 year old and 2 year old boys and I love it. I haven't worked since I was 20 weeks pregnant with my first son and apart from going to playgroup with the boys once or twice a week I don't do much that involves other people.
DH works long hours out of town during the week, sometimes away interstate over night so our weekends are often family orientated - a park, the zoo, a trip away or even just at home in the backyard together etc. During the week my days are filled with cooking, cleaning, playing with my boys, taking them to visit my elderly nanna and doing little art projects with them. There is limited adult interaction unless it it from my family. (Mother, step-dad, brother.)
I don't have any mummy friends at all and I don't think I've seen one of my childless friends in over 5 months - since before I was pregnant!! It doesn't often bother me but sometimes when I have exciting news or am feeling flat for whatever reason I realise the only people I have to speak to are my mother and DH and then I start to feel a little lonely and wonder what is so wrong with me that I have no friends lol.
I've been considering doing a midwifery or nursing course in 2015 but I wonder how I'd go with a children who are 5, 3.5 and 1. I've completed half of a teaching degree but the idea of finishing it and actually teaching terrifies me. It would take a very patient person to be a teacher and I am not that person. I just feel like once my children are in preschool and primary school I am going to have nothing. No career or friends and that is a bit of a worry.
Does anyone else feel the same?
