So I'm doing a mommies' group class through the hospital I delivered at. The idea is to get all the new mommies together/out of the house while also providing some education and a forum to talk/get questions answered. Anyway, we got everyone's contact info last week and one person emailed and asked if anyone wanted to go get coffee this week. A bunch of us said yes, so it sounded like a plan.
I don't know if the person who emailed didn't come this week or what (it is only the second week), but I stayed after for half an hour waiting to go get coffee before I finally gave up and went home. Not to mention the two women on either side of me didn't seem particularly chatty (we are encouraged to stay after and socialize), but everyone else were in groups of two or three and it sort of seemed like a lot of them knew each other already.
I know I could have said something about going to get coffee, and maybe I could have crashed one of the little cliques, but I'm kind of a shy person and doing those things seems awkward to me. I really tried to chat up the two women next to me, but they just didn't seem interested. So, I went hoping to have some fun social interaction with potential new friends, and instead I have a sore butt from sitting on the floor for an hour and a half and an overtired baby who took 45 minutes to calm down enough to nap.
I know this is kind of whiney but I really am disappointed. It makes me not want to go back next week.
