I Was Still Pregnant at 42 Weeks, and This Is What Happened Next

Were You Pregnant With a Friend?

Pregnancy is exciting for any mama-to-be, but add a friend with a burgeoning belly and it's nine months of fun! Having a partner in crime when it comes to hitting up baby boutiques and deciding on the best stroller can make the expectant stage pure bliss. Were you pregnant at the same time as any of your friends?

My cousin was about a 2 months behind me during my first pregnancy, but she and I have never really been close. I think we've spent more time together since our daughters were born that we did in the 20 years before that. With my second pregnancy, I had a friend who was due 2 days after me, and thanks to CM I found a group of about 150 friends who were all due in the same month. (As did most of us, lol) And there is a group of about 20 of us who are still very close even though we're spread all across the country!

My niece and I were pregnant at the same time.We never had the chance to do the shopping thing which we planned on because I was on strict bedrest for almost my entire pregnancy.She gave birth to my great nephew 49 days before I gave birth to my daughter.Then there was my niece from my husbands side who had also given birth to a son 10 months prior.I guess we were a very busy family that year....LOL

I'm currently pregnant with both my sister-in-law and a good friend from church. its not so fun with my sister-in-law but her pregnant personality is no better than her non-pregnant one so that was expect. But I love being pregnant with our friends from church. We can share and do so many things together, we may even have our babies baptized together!

I forgot that there is one more downer- money. Right now my hubby and I have significantly more money than the other two preggos- so I have to be careful how much I shop or talk about shopping. (Which is probably really good for me.) The only thing I am absolutely splurging on with no regrets is a Maclaren Techno double stroller. I'll just have to be careful not to extol its virtues constantly.

My sister, my best friend and I have all been pregnant both times together. Both times my sister and I have been 5 weeks apart, too with my best friend just a couple weeks away. I love it. Our children are all close and we can share parenting tips and clothing. There are only two down sides. 1) We can't really help each other out when the babies come and 2) My sister-in-law is desperate to be pregnant and isn't. I know it is really rough on her.

I was pregnant with one of my best friends (due 2 weeks apart) and 2 other girls in my neighborhood, plus one of my sisters was due a few months before me. It was so much fun comparing everything then since we all had good pregnancies. Now it is not as great sometimes, since our kids are so close in age, we are all comparing and it doesn't always turn out well since our kids are all so different.

Actually, it's with my cousin, but we're like friends! She lives about 300 miles away but all of my other relatives and my family live there so I go at least once a month and we chat online and through phone, so it's like we're living in the same city.

i was pregnant with a good friend and loved it...we worked out together every morning swaping stories about pregnancy and sharing advice ( i was a couple months ahead of her). our pregnancies couldn't have been more different though...hers was a breeze and mine was not to say the least. i ended up on bed rest and she would come over all the time to have lunch with me and bring me the latest magazines..i loved it!

i was, all 3 times. it was good to be able to call someone and compare notes (swelling, cravings, thoughts on names, doctors appointments, etc). and shopping was soooooooooo much fun. in fact, now that i think about it, maybe that's why shopping is not so fun anymore. no one has time(or money) anymore to go to the mall and shop all day and go out to lunch. now it's more like a quick dash to the sale rack, lol.

twice in a row, my sister-in-law and i were preggo together, within 2 weeks each time. this is my 3rd and she is not preggo, which will be nice.

I was pregnant due within 3 weeks of eachother with a long time girlfriend. The only thing was we live in different part of the country! She went early and I went late! both had girls! We are always shipping each other clothes!

I was pregnant with my sister. It was her third and my first, I thought it was so much fun. I was also pregnant with a work buddy too. The only problem was my sister was so huge I didn't look any preggo next to her so she got lots of attention. Then she had her daughter and everyone cared about the baby when I was showing! With my work buddy even though I was 2 months ahead of her she was bigger than me so everyone thought she was farther along. But It was still fun being pregnant with someone else. With this one I'm all by myself. So maybe I'll get that attention this time!

Yes, it was annoying. She was a royal pain in the tookus! She would complain constantly and do this sickening thing with saliva. She drove me crazy. She was a few months behind me. She delivered a girl and I had my first son.
