Last night I received a surprise phone call from one of my high school friends (she's one of the group of 3 I've mentioned before).  It was such a nice surprise - we see each other once or twice a year and probably talk on the phone about that often.  Most of our contact is through e-mails, so phone calls are a special treat.

She wanted to know about the pregnancy and how hubby and I are.  She's doing well.  She's in the throes of planning her wedding (very exciting) and is doing a lot of cool freelance work on the side.  Her "real" job isn't going so hot, so I won't even go there.   Her fiance's business is also doing well.  He's an amazingly hard worker, and it's paying off for him.

I asked her about our other friend, the one who I knew was having fertility problems (this info had come from the 3rd friend).  Our friend is still unable to conceive, has gone through 2 IUIs and 2 or 3 cycles of IVF.  I feel horrible and it's been weighing on my mind.  I want to talk to friend about it and tell her I think about her often, but she wasn't the one who told me, so I'm not sure she even wants me to know.  Her dad doesn't even know what she's going through - she only told her mom.  She's very private about personal things and I don't want to overstep our friendship, so I won't say anything unless she offers the information to me.   I also know that with me being pregnant, it adds a whole new level of discomfort to the situation.  I wish I knew what to say to let her know I care and am praying they get pregnant.  If any couple should have a baby, it's them.
