Hi Ladies! I just found out today that a couple that my husband and I hang out with are unexpectedly pregnant. They just told us, but she's 3.5 months along. My husband and I have been teasing them since we had our bundle of joy 15 months ago that it was there turn. Our pregnancy was planned, however, and a real joy. They are much less than thrilled, for their own personal reasons. I get the feeling that the husband is excited, but wants to support his wife, who is very much not, so he's hiding it. He said he has come to terms with it, but she has not.
My question is how do I help support her without offending her? Do I send a card? Do I buy gifts? Or do I do nothing? They spoiled us rotten with gifts for our baby and I'd love to do the same for them, but not if it will upset her.
Maybe you should take her to lunch and ask how she's feeling about the whole unexpected pregnancy issue. If she seems like she just doesn't want to talk about it then leave the situation alone. But she also might open up to you about everything. I hope everything works out! Just try to be as supportive as possible.
just be there for her to talk to... she will soon get all excited about it just like everyone else... being unplanned you get a lil overwelmed by it all... be the friend for her that she was for you and soon she will be ok... just chill on the Your turn jokes for a lil while... trust me on that one... i wish you all nothign but the best of luck
