Hello, I am new to this site and I am expecting my first child in October.
I am having a bit of an issue with a good friend of mine. We are both pregnant and expecting within a month of eachother. Ever since I found out I was pregnant I feel like my friend has been judging me and trying to compete with my pregnancy. I have distanced myself from her but it still bothers me because we were best friends. My husband and family think I am crazy and my hormones are going haywire, but I really do feel like there is a competitiveness there. I would appreciate any advice.
The other day my friend and I went to a Scentsy party, I told here I would meet her there because I was picking up a jumper the host offered me for a good price. My friend told me she didn't like walkers and jumpers because they were bad for the babies legs. I explained to her that I used both walkers and jumpers and so did my brothers and our legs are fine. She then said that was fine if I wanted children with bowlegs and what not. . . Is it me or was that harsh?
Another instance (sorry venting) She asked for help on FB with a nursery theme, so I gave her a few ideas. She shot every single idea down saying she was doing Monkeys and the only reason I am giving her ideas is because my mother keeps sending me monkey themed items and that is my theme. My mom likes monkeys but I never said it was my theme. I honestly don't know what to do I feel like I can't talk to her anymore and I just want to keep my distance. Has anyone else experianced this and how did you handle it?
