I feel bad that my classmates are having to use surrogates or donor eggs when I got pregnant without trying at 42. What should I tell them?

In brief: Being sensitive
Your classmate will eventually know that your pregnant.
You can disclose your pregnancy and be sensitive at the same time. Directly share that you want to be sensitive and ask for their feedback. Acknowledge and validate their feelings. Avoid saying comments like...just relax, don't worry about it. Give your classmate the space they need.
