need some help.. my close friend just had a miscarriage but at the same time i found myself pregnant. i have no idea how to break this news to her. i want her to be one of the first few to know because it wouldn't be nice if she has to know of my pregnancy from other friends when we are the closest. but how? i think she's feeling terrible now and i feel terribly sad for her as well. why must my pregnancy happen now... hais. i'm lost as to how to balance this situation. being so careful around her these days.

advice pls pls?

My humble opinion is that it is easy for friends to share your misery but much harder for true friends to share your happiness.  Only true friends will feel happy for you.

But maybe ah-pig is right that one should tread carefully.
