What do you do on Friday nights? I’m pregnant and struggling to adjust to not being able to do the things I used to do as a single person. No husband to Netflix and chill w which probably adds to it.

You can still go out with friends. Just don’t drink. Or invite friends over to hang out with you. Or do whatever you normally would on a Friday with minor adjustments. Unless you were doing MMA training. Probably should skip that one.

I had started cooking, baking and painting during my first pregnancy due to so much time and not really being able to go out.. sounds a little old fashioned but it’s low energy and I had amazing cake and a couple of paintings for my nursery at the end of it :)

You can Netflix and chill with a friend 🤣 actually I don’t remember now what I ended up doing, but it was a hard adjustment even with a husband. Not being able to casually have a beer out with friends was very limiting at the time because that’s what all our childless friends wanted to do. Though with the exhaustion that soon set in, I think I ended up being somewhat glad to stay home alone and cuddle with my dog while my husband still went out every now and then.

Once you announce more publicly that you’re pregnant, you can try to find another pregnant woman to hangout with!

For those that are TTC, or currently pregnant - would you get vaccinated? I’m concerned about potential side effects of the vaccine on the fetus. CDC states “if you’re trying to get pregnant, you do not need to avoid pregnancy after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.”
