Yeah she definitely sounds like she’s gotten a little holier than thou. I say just back off and try not to take it too personally. FWIW – my best friend did this too when she had her baby, she was cool all the way up until actually having the kid, and then she became someone I didn’t even recognize anymore – behaving very similar to your friend. I used to say she had a baby and went crazy. It changed our friendship and I felt slighted like you. But the best play is to sit back and let it ride. I didn’t do that, and I got very upset with her and she told me that I “could not understand the miracle she was going through” – excuuuuse me. Just chill and let her have her experience and maybe when the hormones start to calm down in a few weeks (or months) she’ll remember you again.

louiseey:  wow a lot of what they are doing seems dramatic….but maybe theres a reason behind it. They could be bombarded with people/family blabbing on about THEIR expectations for what will happen when the baby is born (speaking from experience). I had my first a few months ago and Leading up to I felt very overwhelmed with everyones “demands” and telling  ME what will and wont be happening and what we WILL be doing. Maybe they are just “blanket saying this” to everyone to basically say eff off lol. If thats the case its just a shame because not everybody (like you) are doing anything to stress her out but who knows (not the best way to handle it). 

I had people making comments about being at the hospital and how phone calls and text updates better be happening as soon as things start, and how we better make sure we visit people and how this one and that one were going to be camped at our house, and Darling Husband and I were both like…ummmm HELLS NO…..we never SAID that to anyone, but basically to “ourselves” we had conversations about what we WOULD be doing just between us and when the time came we just did what we liked and put our foot down when we had to. I just remember thinking “if ONE MORE person tries to tell me they are doing this or that without making sure its ok with me first, im gonna snap my shyte off”…..(just trying to possibly get inside her head)

I know this sounds personal I admit, but there may be other underlying things happening. The godmother thing sucks and the fact she seems to be blowing you off because of no kids sucks tho 🙁 hopefully she will her head outta her ass soon lol
