I would be tempted to parrot back what she said to you.
Or say "So?"

Oh, ignore me, but her level of dismissivenss toward you is not how a friend would be.

No you do not have to suck it up. Keep asking her, so what are you going to do? Or you could dump her on the grounds of serious character flaws.

Unfortunately if you want to keep her as a friend, you'll have to just suck it up.

She's pregnant and emotional. She did what some girls do all the time, think they can change people then get upset and act surprised that they couldn't change them.

I would try and focus on the fact that he's at least said he's going to be there financially and, if you're up for it, suggesting to her that she needs to stop being upset about the guy, she doesn't need the stress, and get her life together and in order to show him how she doesn't need him and enjoy her life with her child.
