After 20 years by best friend and I are no more! Won't bore you with the ins and outs but our DHs had fallen out ... Shouldn't affect us but she made it an issue!

When I announced that we were expecting DD3 I was basically told my DH not fit to burn and we should abort pregnancy! Needless to say we haven't spoken since!

DD3 born Saturday and couldn't be happier but now after 7 months of silence text message received from ex best friend... No apology just a congratulations and that we missed a good doo (mutual friends party) the night i gave birth!

WTF!?! Is it me or is that not normal?

I'm a firm believer if you can't say something nice say nothing at all but what do I do .... Ignore?? Respond with nothing other than thanks! Or do I say what I'm really thinking!!!

Just ignore. If you don't you'll be feeding the drama. Leave as is, go your separate ways.

She is reaching out to you. Do you miss her friendship? If not, ignore. If you miss her, talk to her, life is too short

Reply with "sorry, who is this?"

Just ignore her. Someone who can tell you you should abort your child because your husbands fell out is not worth knowing.

and we should abort pregnancy! That is unforgivable.

She is reaching out to you. Pfft. Let her reach.

That was a truly vile thing to say about your pregnancy.
No, don't bother replying.

Ignore ignore ignore. Honestly don't give her a second thought.

I'd just have to say something like...

'If you seriously think I want your congratulations on giving birth to my beautiful baby that YOU told me to abort, you're even more deluded than I thought. Don't contact me again. Ever'.

She literally said you should abort?? Yeah this is a no-brainer. Ignore.
