She's kind of a grouchy person. She doesn't really think before she talks. We actually didn't talk for about 3 months because she said some pretty crappy stuff to me We finally made up the other day and we went running together yesterday. I thought I'd just get it over with, telling her I'm pregnant. She's been pretty negative about my pregnancies thus far and I was hoping that that might have miraculously changed.
This is how the conversation went.
Her "I'm figuring out how to use my sewing machine"
Me "Cool. Maybe you could sew me a sling?"
Her ".....sure" (She doesn't get it)
Me "Do you think you could have it done by April?"
Me "We're pregnant"
Her "You're pregnant. Geez, you guys just don't stop, do you?"
I was hurt. And pissed. Congratulations would have sufficed. And it's not like we have a gazillion kids. And even if we did, that would be our choice! Every pregnancy/birth/life should be celebrated!
That was only 1 mile in to our 10 mile run. The entire rest of the run, I was trying to forget what she said. Luckily, the other girl that we were running with was very excited for me. She's going to be attempting IUI next month and she said it would be great if we could be pg together.
I don't even want to call her or run with her. I'm obligated to spend the last weekend in August with her for the Hood To Coast run that we're doing together. Then again, I do want to call her and set her straight. :

Oh, and can I ask why you named your dd Ayla? We LOVE that name!

To say you guys just dont stop when its your THIRD kid is incredibly rude. I mean it would be rude for your 15th kid, but at least understandable. LOL But I would be cutting her loose I think.
