Gita Zarnegar, PsyD, MFT, co-founder of The Center for Authenticity, says, “It is reasonable to feel some feelings of guilt upon finding out that you are pregnant on your first attempt while your. It’s the only time in your pregnancy that it isn’t about you, so rise to the occasion. You shouldn’t expect your baby-seeking friends to throw a party or a parade for you. The best way to tell your friend that you’re pregnant is either over the phone or one on one.

The phone allows your friend to get out of the situation quickly if they want to. Here are some things to say to get. It’s important to maintain a friendship, even when one of you is pregnant while the other is not. I want your relationship to change and grow for the better, even as your belly becomes a catch-all for food and other debris!! You shouldn’t need to grow apart simply because you’re growing another human!

When you’re trying to conceive, when you’re $30,000 in the hole with no end in sight, let me tell you: It’s going to seem like every single person in the universe is with child but you. Yes, you’re the one who’s pregnant, but you’re not the only one with a life worth talking about. Your friends will be more responsive to what’s important in your life (baby, baby, baby) if you’re more responsive to what’s important in theirs (a promotion, a roommate problem, a breakup). Have patience — and ask for it, too. Being a concerned and unconditionally supportive friend — and yes, even a slightly worried friend — is not going to hurt you or your baby.

Pregnancy doesn’t give us a free pass to check out of every emotionally fraught or difficult situation, as nice as that might be. Let’s be honest, you don’t feel happy for your pregnant friend as you pretend to be. It’s normal, though no one likes it when their peer goes a step ahead and leaves them behind.

You are guilty of giving that ugly baby name to your friend, aren’t you?Being overwhelmed with joy is the only acceptable response when a friend tells you that she’s pregnant (barring any mitigating factors like being sixteen). Bursting into tears is bad, and yet that’s been my response— twice —when close friends told me they were pregnant. Now, just so I don’t leave any shred of doubt in your mind, I can tell you unequivocally, I am not even a tad pregnant. Not even a smidge.

So I just stood there, staring at her, completely frozen, and at a loss for what to say in response to this unsolicited verbal attack on my self-esteem. Eventually, I shot back, “No, I’m not. Do not say that you know you have a lot of work to do, or that you’re still trying to lose the baby weight, or that your baby is a bad sleeper so you haven’t been able to get back to your pre-pregnancy size. Just say ‘no’ and move along.

There is nothing wrong with looking like you’re pregnant or looking like you’ve had a baby.

  • You give him another chance but not your friend. I never got when people do that because both of them would have been dismissed. These women be putting up with bullshit, stress, depression, madness and etc. but won’t leave. You choosing to be unhappy by being with a person that doesn’t make you happy.

  • I cried, so happy for both of you guys. Congratulations. Been following you cuz i love travel too. So good to know the little one is coming. Yeahhhhh

  • Smh..good for her finding out before the baby was born. Her sister is deadt wrong..I could NEVER and I have six sisters. My EX friend would have gotten the brakes beat off her ass #Period

  • I’m so sorry girl this happened to u but that’s gonna make u a even more stronger young beautiful woman no one deserves that not even an enemy. Much love n respect keep up shining cause that’s what you are.��������

  • I feel Really bad for this girl. Her boyfriend is the absolute pits, as to her ‘friend’ (if you can call her that) is as bad as her boyfriend and her sister new this was going on for ages and didn’t say a word. My advice to her is to dump the boyfriend and ‘friend’ straight away and to cut the sister out of her life.

  • Kim is a very beautiful black woman. Myron need to go be with Nisha and leave kim and her family alone. I think Nia didn’t tell her sister Kim because Kim probably would think she was lying just to keep her from dating Myron. At the end of the day,family is all we have

  • He wanted to get back with her so he could use Kims money on the baby and he wants to have a house to stay in. Her sister is a real slug to boot,

  • but b** you talking this little story about how you put him out he had to go so why the f*** are you on the show still dealing with the situation I thought you put him out b** fake s*** y’all be on fake shit why are you on TV then

  • I’m worried that im pregnant, its about 8 days before my period and i had intercourse 18 days ago, and ive been feeling so ill, bloated, and sore this last week. I took two test, but they are negative, I can’t afford going to the hospital, so should i just wait and see if i have a missed period to test again? It would mean a lot if i could get a reply

  • He didn’t want the relationship anymore.he want all the women he slept with. He don’t want her.and her sister WoW.loyal laid with your sister.ok.

  • This beautiful young lady could have anyone of her dreams!! I truly hope she can heal and learn to trust again after this. I know if I was betrayed by the 3 people I thought were in my corner, I’d have some trust issues for a very long time.

  • This is one of the saddest examples of a dysfunctional family that I have ever seen. The sister is so low down for siding with a friend over her own blood sister. And why did she take the lie detector test when she knew she was gonna fail? And dude, she was throwing away 3 years?!? You threw them away when you began cheating the so-called friend! Kim needs to dump all of these lying, cheating trolls and move on with her life.
