I've been trying to tell my friend I am pregnant...

for the past 2 weeks. I sent her a photo of my daughter wearing a "big sister" shirt saying "Lily's new shirt"

I got a text back that said "she is so cute!"

I have called and left messages for her to call me back every 3-4 days (no calls back)

I sent the photo of Lily in her shirt again this morning with the caption "Lily loves her new "big Sister" shirt"

no texts back.

I am wanting to post my pregnancy on facebook- but really want to let my friend know in person first. This is hard to do since she will not call me back or respond to my text...

oh well. Like so many things during pregnancy it is just annoying that I can't share this news with one of my favorite people in the world!!

  • maybe she thinks you are trying to rub it in her face, i bet she understood it the first time when she did comment. you could send her a text saying you wanted her to know first and you've been trying to get her to call you.

  • Your friend is probably just really busy and/or distracted lately. If she is one of your best friends I'm sure she will be more than thrilled about your news. Perhaps your next message or text should be more specific like, "please call me asap, I have something very important/urgent to talk to you about." or "Is everything alright, I've been trying to tell you somehting very important for a few weeks now and can't seem to get a hold of you." I'm sure when you speak to her she'll actualy feel a little bad about not being there when you needed her 2 weeks ago. not that I wish that upon her, but putting myself in her shoes, that's probably how I would feel. Good luck!

  • i think she's not that interested and that is why she's avoiding you. i would just send a text and leave it at that then post the pics on FB shortely after.

  • This is my third pregnancy. I guess she probably just doesn't care. She is not ttc and I don't think it's coming off as rubbing it in her face.
