I've been on MAT leave now for just over a month, I struggle now at 34 weeks to walk to the shops without extreme discomfort so I am reluctant to leave my house these days unless my partner drives me somewhere (I can't drive). I have always been so independent and now I just feel stranded. His life still goes on, he goes to the pub, sees his mates and I stay at home with the TV. I am also the first of my friends to be pregnant. I can't wait to be a mum and to have the fabulous social life that comes with that but right now I feel so lonely. Is it normal to feel this way?
