Is it normal to be pregnant and feel alone?
It turns out it’s completely normal to feel alone during pregnancy. Pregnancy can be a time of great joy. Some pregnant women seem to be glowing, walking around in a complete state of pregnancy bliss. But pregnancy can also be a very difficult time. It can be hard on your body, making you feel physically sick more often than you ever thought possible. Sleep can also be a struggle, even becoming nearly impossible, especially in the third trimester.
These physical changes, which are often accompanied by changes in your lifestyle, can feel isolating. If you don’t know other moms, that feeling can be even stronger. Even if your friends have children of their own or are pregnant or trying, you might still end up feeling lonely during pregnancy.
