The Best Ways to Support Your Pregnant Friend

Finding out one of your friends, sisters, neighbors or daughters is pregnant is such an exciting thing. There are so many little moments to look forward to, like a baby shower, or ultrasound pictures, or baby onesies with little pastel ducks on them (those are my favorite).
