Why do people act this way?

I was talking to one of my friends today and accidentally slipped up about how DF and I are TTC. We hadn't told anyone because we didn't want to hear "you're trying before marriage?" or "are you pregnant yet?" So her negativity started when she said "You're going to HATE being pregnant." I almost slipped again and told her she was miserable long before and after she was pregnant but I shut my mouth! We got into this conversation about labor and delivery and she tore me apart for wanting a NCB. She was induced at 38 weeks (for convenience) and ended up having an emergency c-section. And I'm the one who is nuts and crazy and every other word she could come up with. Even worse, she told me that I could never do it and would be begging for pain meds after an hour. At that point I wanted to reach through the phone and smack her.
Ok...I'm done venting now. But she totally gave me even more motivation to have a NCB and to love EVERY minute of my pregnancy, just so that I can prove her wrong!
