Sharing your pregnancy with a close friend who hasn’t been able to conceive.

Hey ladies,

I’m running into a dilemma and am not sure what is the best action to take in this situation. I’ve known my best friend since shortly after my daughter was born. We are really close and work on so many things together, including my business.

My friend is in her 30’s and has never been able to conceive. She loves children and it devastates her that she hasn’t been able have babies of her own. Well, I recently found out that I’m pregnant with my second child. This child was an absolute surprise as I ovulated extremely early.

My dilemma is when do I tell my friend? Eventually, I’m not going to be able to hide it. I don’t want to hurt her by telling her I’m pregnant, but I also don’t want to hurt her by not telling her. What would you do or how have you handled these situations?

Thanks so much!
