    Congratulations for pregnancy

    May has a son and she's pregnant again. May is not happy because she feels it's not the right time to have a new baby because her mum is seriously sick in the elderly home.

    I want to send her a text of congratulations and support during her difficult time.

    Can you correct my writing as follows:

    "May, you deserve every bit of happiness this baby is going to give you during this difficult time. Congratulations."

    Thanks.

    It looks okay to me.

    Hi Tarheel,

    I don't understand the sentences in the bracket. Could you explain?

    Thanks.

    Some people have the habit of saying "Thanks" in the OP. It's not necessary.
