21 Texts To Tell Your Bestie You’re Pregnant

Until you can scream at them in the Target baby aisle.

One of the best parts about finding out you’re pregnant is telling everyone else. I know there are a lot of “rules” and opinions on how to go about doing that — whether you hard launch a baby on Instagram when they’re 6 months old or immediately text everyone a picture of your pregnancy test before the pee even dries — but whatever feels right for you is what you should do. And for many, sending a text to your BFF to tell them you’re pregnant is step one.

Maybe your bestie has been there with you through all the ovulation tests and sex woes or maybe this is a complete surprise and they have no idea what’s coming — either way, you know your bestie is going to be a major support person for you. And being able to share this big moment with them through a text that perfectly complements your relationship is the best. There are funny texts, sweet texts, and even texts that reference your favorite pop culture moments to share and announce your pregnancy to your bestie.
