Re: How to break the news to a friend struggling

It took us 10 yrs, several surgeries, & an egg donor.

I avoided most pregnant people like they had the plague for years....except my baby sister. My heart was overjoyed for my sister while others caused me sobbing tears. You can't control who does or doesn't want to remain close to you.....all you can do is be kind & attempt to be the first source the news comes from

I suggest using the sandwich technique. Tell each friend in a personal way that you value their friendship, tell them the news, tell them you'll need a good dose of their great humor when morning sickness strikes (or tell them u can't wait to sit on the phone with them all night when you're too tired to clean your house, or can't wait to have a relaxing girls night out & get a mani pedi together when they can laugh at your swollen feet....)

Best wishes to you & your friendships
