If you ARE pregnant

If you are pregnant, I'm happy for you-really! I am! But please, don't start off by announcing to me, "I didn't know how to tell you this. I know that you've been trying and having issues..." Yes, we have been trying and yes, we are having issues but we don't need to reiterate that. And when you say, "I didn't know how to tell you." Well, that right there gives it away.

You're pregnant-awesome, just because I can't have a baby doesn't mean that I'm not happy for you. Yes, I may be bitter for a day or two, I might randomly cry throughout the next few days, I may even throw out comments to DH about how unfair it is and WHY not us but I'm still really happy for you!

If fact, after I get over my 2-3 day "Why Not Me???" period, I'll probably be your biggest cheerleader. I'll be the annoying one saying, "OH I have this one pregnant friend that had this..." or "I heard that morning sickness means..."

But face the facts, I'm a baby deprived momma so when your little bundle of joy arrives, guess what? I won't mind babysitting for you from time to time and when I'm in the store and see an adorable outfit too cute to pass up, I'll think of you and being the coupon clipper that I am, I'll even save formula and diaper coupons for you.

So please, if you're pregnant don't be afraid to tell me.

Just wanted to tell you that you were the FIRST to call me out when I was pregnant a while back on my blog and I didn't post your comment because I was in shock. I wanted to email you and reply to your comment, but I don't even know your name, nor was your email address available on the comment you left.

Anyway, you were right. We are pregnant. Hope you'll continue to follow our journey and I hope that I can be your mentor someday very soon! :)

Happy Friday!

Oh and this post. I think I posted the same EXACT thing on my blog. Only my friends didn't listen. In fact, my best friend kept the fact that she was pregnant until I told her that I was pregnant. She's 11 weeks, I'm 8. Grrrrrrrrr.

I'm glad that you can be so happy for your pregnant friends. Sometimes I can, some days are harder. I'll try to adopt some of your attitude :)
