Meeting mommy friends?

I've always been someone with a plenty of friends & people to hang out with & as soon as I became pregnant all my friends disappeared. I always knew moms who talked about losing friends when they became a mom but I didn't realize I was gonna have to meet all new friends. & Meeting mommy friends is a lot harder than I thought. Did any other mommys struggle with making new mommy friends after becoming a Momma?

    Same. I have always had friends but since having my sons it has been very hard to make a genuine friend. I think most moms struggle with this unless you had really great friends who end up having kids at the same time as you. I envy those moms!

    It’s definitely true. And everyone will say they will be around or volunteer to help. HA. Once you have a baby they disappear! My husband and I also realized a lot of those friends only wanted us to come to their house. When we really couldn’t anymore we lost close contact with some of our friends. It really has to be a effort on both sides. Not saying you’re not giving an effort. But having a baby really shows which real friends stick around and know that you’re a mom now and things will be different, you’re priorities have changed. I have lost friends and now have permanently removed them for being inconsistent in my life.....but have become closer to other friends who wanted the same things I did which was having a family.

    Lol. My son is a year old and I’m still struggling. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’ve found social media to be really helpful. I’m normally not very bold but sometimes if I really feel like I relate to someone on Instagram I will message them saying I think they seem really cool and I’d like to get to know them over coffee or something. Usually people are flattered. (:

    I feel like moms all over have this problem and it sucks . My son will be one I have a few friends but nothing like I used to.
