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.

Thanks in advance

I suggest talking to her first about how she feels. If you feel like she's being offended then just change the subject. But get her take on things first, maybe she needs someone to talk to.

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.
