I'm just now at 9 weeks, so DH and I have been very selective about who we've told about the pregnancy (we want to wait until after 12 weeks to be on the safe side before making a "public" announcement).
Anyway, we met up with some friends yesterday, and I was caught off-guard when, in the middle of a conversation on an entirely different topic, the woman asked if I was pregnant yet. I said that I was and then she changed the subject like I had said nothing more than "Gee, the sky sure is blue today."
The husband made a comment about my pregnancy once or twice throughout the rest of the day, but not once did they seem happy for us or say the words "Congratulations". They didn't ask how far along I am, or whether we plan on moving, or what we're doing with finances (I recently was laid off, so these are questions that they normally ask when we get together with them).
It almost seemed like they were bitter about my pregnancy. The wife has been TTC for a few months now, but their reaction just really surprised (and saddened) me. Even my husband, who is usually oblivious to this sort of thing, noticed their reaction and was taken aback by it. Until this couple, we've received nothing but excitement and well-wishes from whomever we've told. I'm not sure if she's envious I've conceived before her or what, but that is the only thing I can think of that would cause them to act this way.
We're not sure how to feel about their reaction - has anyone else experienced this? If so, what did you do? I don't know if we should just act like nothing is wrong, or if we should maybe not hang out with them for a while and hope they come around... any suggestions would be helpful! This is very confusing for my husband and me since they are close friends of ours. Thanks.
