Faking It

The email I opened today:

You still out there??? It has been forever since we talked. Last I heard you had bought a house and (mr g.) was working really hard to get it ready for you all to move in. That must have been 6- 8 months ago! How is A? How are you?

I am pregnant again. :) Due in May. H (her daughter) just had her 1st birthday. Time is flying.

Love,
(a friend)


My reply?

Hi (friend),

I only have a sec, (at work) but I just wanted to say Congrats! on your pregnancy and a BIG GIANT HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! to H.

Love, ms. g


I didn't tell her. And I don't know if I'm going to.

Wow, I hate HATE this shit. Hate it. I wouldn't blame you one iota for dumping your latest on her plate, but I also don't blame you for clamming up (which is probably what I would do).

Bleh. So sorry.

I wouldn't know what to do either. I might tell her sometime in the future if the subject of ttc or a subsequent pg for you came up. You'll know if & when it's the right time. But yeah, it's hard to rain on a friend's parade. (((hugs)))

Found you through Don't count your chickens, and am desperately sorry to hear of your recent loss. I don't have any advice on how to deal with those pregnancy emails that come at such inopportune moments, but I did want to send you a hug. xx

Ouch. I wish there was a better way to deliver this news. I am sorry you had to get that announcement. I don't know how I would respond either. Thinking of you every day Ms. G.
