I think people have different emotional responses then you.
And that is okay.
You are extra sensitive right now.
I am super sensitive all the time and always feel like no body cares about my life.

If she has alot going on, she's probably preoccupied with it.
And know that though she probably is happy for you
You can't expect people to have the same emotional connection to your pregnancy as you do...
I'm sure when the baby is here she will help and be there for you.
8 weeks is early, so maybe shes trying to not get too excited because things can happen in that time.

I had an experience with my mom not giving a shit about my first pregnancy test and it turned out I lost it and miscarried because I put myself through emotional stress thinking no body cared about me.

So relax, for your bodies sake.
... It will be okay

And I'm sure you are loved and she does care in her own way.

I ve got 3 good friends, I told one that I hardly ever see anymore but she hasn't reply yet. That was last month. She never showed very much interested in my daughter ( never bought her anything or even a card) so I am not surprised but It annoys me, I ll ask my 2 other best friends when I see them what she is like with their children. That friend doesn't have any children, she got pregnant 2 years ago and she choose to terminate it because the time wasn't right so I don't know what to think about it...

Thanks, ladies! We have just been the type of friends to share everything with and show excitment when the time is right and feel sorrow when things are bad. When her response wasnt the best, it caught me off guard when usually questions would never end. I haven't talked to her much, so really not sure whats going on with her. It is/was a very sisterly friendship, but after getting the house last year with no excitment and then the baby news, i just have pulled away. It seems like when things are wrong is when i get the most response from her. Took a few days to really see this, but i think i get it now!

I had a friend like that. She was wonderfully supportive and the first person I would call when my life was falling apart (breakups, accidents, injuries), but when good things started happening to me (bought a house, new boyfriend, got engaged) she became so distant. She was one of my bridesmaids two years ago, and I’m sad to say we’ve drifted apart and are not really friends anymore. Actually, I’m not sad because I am now recognizing it was a toxic relationship. It may be harder to be happy for someone else if you aren’t happy about your own life, but true friendship means you show up in good times and bad. At a certain point I decided not to waste my energy trying to maintain a friendship with someone who made no effort and didn’t seem to care or want to be friends with me anymore.

Your situation may be different, maybe she’s just a little preoccupied right now, and you guys just need to reconnect and have a good heart to heart.
