Hi Momma-bees! I would like your input. I am not a mom, and one of my closest friends had her first baby yesterday (yay!). She announced it on facebook, so I haven’t had any one on one communication with her since the baby was born. I live out of state so I sent her flowers and a balloon today. I haven’t heard from her. I know she has a lot of things going on and I recognize she may want time and space to celebrate her new little family.
Would it be intrusive to call her to see if she got the flowers I sent? Should I wait another day? I don’t want to bother her but I haven’t heard from her so I am worried they may not have been delivered properly. Thanks bees!

I don’t think I would say anything other than maybe “Congrats!” or something via text. If she just had the baby yesterday, it’s a safe bet that flowers and balloons are very low on her priority list right now, although a nice gesture on your part!

I’d wait a day or two. I don’t think she will feel any less loved if she didn’t get them right away, and that extra space may be just what she needs. I imagine her not getting back to you yet is just because of her hectic day, and not because the flowers have not been delivered. You’re an awesome friend to send them to her though, and I’m sure she will love it even if she’s a little too busy to say thanks right now!

HeartsandSparkles: I wouldn’t if I were you! I sent friends of mine a gift and didn’t hear from them but it didn’t bother me as I know those initial stages with bubs are pretty crazy! Especially if it’s only been a day she’s probably barely looked at her phone between sleeping/recovering/feeding and generally just enjoying this very special time! I’m sure she/they will contact you once everything settles down.

Thank you bees! I already sent my congratulations and best wishes on facebook. I want her to know she is loved but I definitely don’t want to be a burden!! I realize she is really busy and tired and making a big life transition!

I would not contact her. If you are concerned, contact the florist where you ordered from just to make sure

What she said — contact the florist if anything. Don’t breathe a word to her about it.

All my other friends who had babies sent me a quick text thanking me for the flowers I sent, so I’ve never been in this situation before. I was on the fence, but apparently I definitely shouldn’t call. Thanks bees!
