I have never been super close to my family and over the years it has just gotten worse and my husband is the same way. So we knew when we got pregnant that we would be on this journey pretty much alone. I thought I could handle it but it seems the further along I get the more lonely I get. I know I have my DH but sometimes I wish we had a bigger family. My mother passed away when I was 2 months pregnant and I have been devastated by that b/c she was the only person I was really close too. My MIL acts like shes interested at times, but usually its just to complain or put her problems onto us. I feel sad about this quite often but im so happy about the baby. I seem to have more friends that act like family than family. My DH always says..you have me! Which I do but sometimes I feel I need others support too. Is there anyone else who may have a similar situation and if so how r u dealing with this with all the hormones and mood swings???
