Is she a competitive person? Would it be out of the realm of possibility here that she secretly wants to  “beat you to it” and get to be a mum first? Did you get engaged before her and have a wedding before her and this is her way of trying to get you to put off trying to start a familly while she and her husband are avidly TTC just so she can have a baby before you can? 

I just think it is beyond all comprehension for a friend to invite herself into your bedroom and tell you when you and your husband can stop using contraceptives.

This is absolute nonsense and I’m saying this as a cfbc woman. How on earth is it normal for her to think she gets a say in your family planning? It has nothing to do with her. Plus you’re only 10 weeks pregnant so she has plenty of calm months ahead of her (although I really don’t see how your child will make her life hectic).

Congrats btw

I’m dying to hear how your friend reacts. She either needs some serious boundaries as she apparently thinks she can control your life, or she’s full of shit and doesn’t want you to beat her to the punch. 

Congratulations!
