She called husband and told him. She didnt tell me no call no text. Were not really close.. Shes already grown when i met her. Should i text or call to congratulate. She wasnt happy when i got pregnant with my dd and her and bm made it known in fb but i quickly react and told them how rude they were and its none of their business.After that they shut up.so as a disengaged sm should i even bother?

Update..
She replied and was nice on the text.

YES!  

This is the perfect time to mend fences.  Your husband is going to be a grandfather and he will want a relationship with that child.  So you do everything you can to mend that fence.  Even if she is a bit on the bitchy side you simply deal with it for the sake of your husband.  And if you have to say something like 'im sorry we had a rocky start' or 'im sorry for things in the past' you do it... even if you dont feel you were 100% wrong.  you do it for the man you love.

I would. I'd tell her congrats, and you are happy for them. Let her know you're there for her if she needs anything. Making nice will be better in the long run.

I would text and just say congrats on the new family. A text isn't that formal so I don't think it will hurt. At least she'll know u care instead of ignoring it

It wouldnt hurt to congratulate her but if you have a strained relationship it wouldnt hurt to not say anything either.

I wouldn't. You can congratulate her in person the next time you see her. If she wanted to discuss it with you she would have called you.
