Why tell me in a text?

So, I just got a text from one of my girlfriends that she is pregnant!!!  Why are you telling me in a text?  Honestly I am happy for her but this is her 3rd and I am still working on #1.  She got married 6 months before!!!  Now she has 3 kids!!!  How come it is sooo easy for her to pop out kids?  I guess I just wish she called me instead of texting me, hello pick up the phone.  The thing that makes me mad is that she knows we are struggling and knows everything I have been going through.  This just goes to show unless you have dealt with IF you have no idea. 


Thanks for letting me vent!!!

( ( ( ( H U G S ) ) ) ) I know, it sucks!! I'm about to the point I am so tired of hearing people are pg. I agree she could have at least told you over the phone. You can tell people about IF until your blue in the face, but they will never truly know. P&PT

That's annoying, but I really think she thought she was sparing your feelings by texting and that it would hurt you less this way. My good friend texted me on Saturday that her sister gave birth - she is 36 and unmarried - the father is an ex boyfriend who lives in another country who agreed to bd with her just so she could have a kid. She had no trouble conceiving or delivering the baby at all and here I am at 34 in a very happy marriage not able to do this. Yeah, of course it sucks. I'm with you, girl.

hey susan,


totally stings to get that kind of news, even if you are happy for her. i know that "why can't i do this??" feeling all too well. you have a plan, though, and hopefully you'll have good news to text her!
