I would ask her directly what she meant by the text and why she felt she had to approach your close friend. Tell her you want to "clear up " any misunderstanding about your fertility and any other questions she might have.
Sounds a charmer. I would ignore it for now and when she does eventually comment on your pregnancy you can say "yes I heard you knew because of that text you sent such and such and what you had said to x". That will be enough for her to know that you know what she said. Don't waste your energy on these types.
I can be a bit confrontational wrt things like this, so I'd be inclined to approach her and say your friend has brought these comments to your attention. Give her a chance to wriggle and squirm a bit, then say that in future, if she has something to say, perhaps she could ask you directly. Then you will be able to tell her to fuck off and mind her own business directly too!
Good, well although I don't know all the facts, I would suggest she is being much more insensitive to your friend who lost a baby than you are!
Some people are a bit sniffy about large families... I have five brothers and sisters and we endured all kinds of raised eyebrows and knowing looks from friends parents, right down to open speculation about our parents' sex life and use of contraception FFS! Don't know why people are so snobby, it's fab to grow up with lots of brothers and sisters, I would have liked a larger family myself but career choices and other things meant I couldn't afford it/ didn't have time on the biological clock
what a cow! I'm betting she's jealous. I've also got 4 children and have always said no more, but that's because DH has said no, not because I don't want more. It's not sending bitchy texts though, honest!
The woman sounds like rude and insensitive. Ignore her I reckon. If this is your fifth child though then people will gossip a bit and judge. Rightly or wrongly they will be wondering whether you financial circs are adequate to sensibly have another then the whole issue of overpopulation always gets backs up. My friend with 4 children often has to put up with rude and intrusive observations, comments and question of this sort from strangers!
