These Are The Perfect Texts To Send To A Pregnant Friend

Because you don't always want to hear your friend go on (and on) ad nauseam about their nausea.

When your friend tells you that they’re pregnant, it’s certainly joyous news. But after the initial announcement, you might find that when your friend is expecting, all they talk about is their pregnancy. All the time. So while you want to be a supportive friend, you don’t want to hear them go on ad nauseum about, well, their nausea. That’s when having these handy dandy texts to send a friend who is pregnant can help keep the connection — without keeping you on the phone for hours on end, either.
