I have two friends who I work with but also socialise outside of work. We are not extremely close, but close enough to share some personal things.
Friend 1 and I were pregnant with our first at the same time which we bonded a lot over. Friend 1 had a miscarriage about a year ago but hasnt been able to fall pg again since and may not be able to have more children
Friend 2's first child is roughly the same age as ours as well which we have bonded over, she has been ttc for about 18m but suffered 2 mc and has said they may stop trying due to her age and not being able to cope with any more losses
I am 12 wks pg now and ready to tell people but I'm not sure the best way to go about it with these two friends. Although we ttc for 11 months, I can't imagine what they have gone through with mc's and possibly not being able to have more children. I desperately don't want to hurt them and I'm afraid of handling it the wrong way.
Should I tell them in person one to one or is that making it too big a deal? Should I send them a private email or facebook message or is that too impersonal? WWYD?
Just to add, my most common communication with both friends is emails at work or facebook.
Any advice is very appreciated.
