Distant Friend

Both my friend and I have been trying for about 2 years to get pregnant. This would be my 2nd child, her 3rd. We just found out about a month ago that I am now expecting (yay!) and she initially acted happy, but now has become extremely distant and made a few really hurtful remarks. The first week or so I cried constantly because I was upset that she wasn't pregnant yet and clearly hurt by my pregnancy, but now the more it progresses, I am less hurt and just angry. This is supposed to be the happiest time of my life and I can't even enjoy it because of her selfish actions.
The hardest part of this is that this is not only my best friend, but she is also my boss. Her attitude at work has changed and everyone has noticed how distant and hateful she has become. I have to relive these feelings every day when I come to work and face her. It is getting impossible... I am so hurt and angry but I don't want to approach her or act in any way that will jeopardize my employment.

I think for your own sanity and health you need to talk to her. Let her know that you are sorry that she hasn't fallen pregnant yet but that's not a reason for her to act the way she is.
It sounds like she has taken it hard but like I said, it's not a reason to treat you like crap.
