Maybe she doesn’t want to “jinx” things by officially letting slip early, but is really excited and can’t help but want her friend to know? Does it really matter?! Wonderful if she is!

Sounds like your friend wants you to know, but doesn’t want to tell you, if that makes sense. I’m sure she has her reasons, and its probably better just to let her do it on her time.

She is prob afraid to say anything until she is out of the first trimester. Let her tell you when she is ready. It is a very scary and exciting time in her life. 

Just be happy for her and let her tell you on her own time.

She may very well know she’s pregnant but doesn’t want to tell anyone yet. Some women don’t even see their doctor until 10 weeks and would like to see the baby and hear the heart beat befor telling anyone, even her best friend. My best friend knew that we were TTC and listened to me cry on a number of occasions, however I was still planning to wait until 8 weeks to tell her but she called me out at 6.

She could be waiting to get it confirmed by a doctor and/or waiting to tell family first.

Two girls at work did this too. They’re due two weeks apart and it was SO OBVIOUS that they were pregnant. They constantly talked about what they couldn’t eat, couldn’t drink, etc. 

I have had a few people call me out on being tired and stuff but i just said i had been really busy or whatever. I think to sit there and intentionally drop massive hints that you’re pregnant, if you’re not willing to share that news, is silly.

She might not be dropping hints on purpose!  We’re not ready to tell a lot of folks yet, and I keep having to catch myself so that I don’t accidentally just mumble that I’m not feeling well/always tired/the smell of your food makes me want to vomit/etc.  When you feel like garbage all the time, it’s hard not to say that you feel like garbage.  Smile

@guitargirl:  I am not pregnant but I kind of find this a bit odd. If she doesn’t want anyone to know then I would be very careful about pointing out classic pregnancy symptoms unless I wanted that person to guess I were pregnant. 
We are TTC at the moment and I am actually quite afraid of people guessing if we fell pregnant. I am quite private and would hate it. It sounds like she probably wants you to know/guess. Each to their own I suppose 🙂
