Maybe we should all start our own introverts group 😊😊

I'm an extrovert but even I hate the effort involved in catching up with people, especially while pregnant!

We have a 7 month old DD and I am really struggling with fitting everyone/everything in and DH is quite protective of our down time as he doesn't get to see a huge amount of DD due to work so he sees that as his time with her and doesn't want to share her!
I currently have about half a dozen people wanting to catch up with DD and I during the week sometime soon. Between childcare practice sessions each Tuesday and Friday (going back to work this week 1.5 days), gymbaroo class on Monday, swimming on Saturday then fitting in things like dr and physio for me at the moment and giving her decent opportunities for naps at home and practicing with her solids eating I can fit 1-2 people in for catch ups each week. My parents want to see DD 1-2 times a week - always with me taking her to them so that's an added expectation. I also need to fit in running errands like grocery shopping and heaven forbid just chill out cos yanno having a baby is pretty freaking tiring. 💤💤💤
I do just do my own thing when I want but feel guilty that I haven't caught up with certain people. I find it hard to fit it all in I can't see it getting easier. I'm also the kind of person who needs time just at home, quiet time with no jobs or plans to chill out and recharge. It's absolutely essential that I get that at least once a week a few hours or I feel a bit chaotic and overwhelmed. Or overstimulated in baby-speak 😀
It's good that you recognize it MrsLadyBugg and can think about how to manage your time and everyone's expectations and your needs.
