So my friend is pregnant with her 4th baby. She has aborted the 3 previous pregnancies. She decided to keep this one as she is 31 and feels this may be her only chance to have a baby. She does not know who the father is, and she is moving in with her mpm to raise the baby as a single parent.
To help her feel not alone in the preggo club, and to share my news, I told her about my 3rd baby I'm expecting recently. I am very happily married, and also have a 7 year old, and 9 month old so yes the younger 2 will be close apart.
Given her history, and my current lifestyle, I was all but shocked and certainly offended when she replied to my news via text message exactly as follows verbatim: "Wow! Conrats! 3 is a lot, maybe get sterilized after that?"
Is it just me, or is that rude, tactless, and coming from someone who has no room at all to speak on the subject?
I would love your thoughts ladies.... thanks! :)
