That is kind of awkward…Personally, I would find this incredibly uncomfortable and annoying and kind of slowly phase out of being friends with her.  It’s weird that she does expensive gifts and stuff….it’s not difficult to know people’s birthdays because of facebook now, but that’s just weird.  

As far as the pregnancy announcement response of, “What, you forgot my birthday?!”, I would just ignore it, don’t respond and start phasing her out of your collective e-mails, group invites, etc.  

Sorry if this isn’t very helpful, it’s just what I would do if I were in that situation.

 

And, most importantly, CONGRATULATIONS on the pregnancy!

the end.

I forget everyone’s bday! lol Infact I left my moms house the other day, the day before her bday, and totally freaked b/c I had forgotten it was coming up and thought that I had just walked in talked to her and totally forgot to tell her happy bday… thankful I didn’t miss it. lol

What I don’t understand though is why was she included in the “We’re pregnant” email if ya’ll aren’t that close?

idk I think that as long as she’s included in those she’s likely to think you’re closer than you think ya’ll are and then she’ll probably continue in her expectancy.

Oh and as far as responding.. if you don’t know when her bday is then that’s how I would respond… OMGosh I’m sorry I didn’t even know it was your bday… I mean she’s already not happy, how much worse could it get.. lol

And congratualtions!!!!!!! Happy pregnancy!!!!!!!!! Laughing

Wow – I feel like when someone announces a pregnancy the correct response is “Congratulations!” or something along those lines. That’s a really immature response from your friend! I get that 30th birthdays are a milestone but so is a pregnancy! Pregnancy annoucement trumps acquitance’s 30th birthday!

@runsyellowlites: “What I don’t understand though is why was she included in the “We’re pregnant” email if ya’ll aren’t that close?” Exactly what I was thinking.

I’d be irritated with her behavior too, but what I’m wondering is…  why haven’t you already distanced yourself from her?  Why invite her to BBQs or other gatherings, why send her an e-mail pregnancy announcement?

Sounds like you are using an awful lot of energy on someone you don’t even really know super well. Seems like a waste to me! Put all that focus on your future beautiful baby and be done with it!

Yes i would be annoyed!!Especially since I grew up in a large family and birthdays consisted of who got their plate first at dinner.

I have a friend like that, where she does everything right and criticizes everyone that doesn’t live up to her bday, thank you card, crafty ways. You just said you were pregnant… and that was her response? Yes I would be annoyed.

yeah…that’s super weird and i would be annoyed too! she should know better. sounds like she is oddly bitter about the two of you not being closer…good thing you only see her every once in awhile. try not to let it bug you too much, and if you choose to include her in any future announcements or celebrations, expect a weirdo response from her so that it doesn’t catch you off guard. some people just have no home training!
