Lizzie had been struggling for years to conceive with her husband Peter. when she had given up hope of ever having a baby on her own, her best friend Andie was pregnant after a one-night stand. Andie offered to keep the baby and give it to Lizzie. they agreed and Andie started living with them. as she continued with her pregnancy, Andie found herself getting more and more attached to the unborn baby and it became a challenge to their friendship.
despite not having a perfect ending, the realism of the plot and its twists were impressive. through little things, the marriage between Lizzie and Peter started showing cracks, revealing more and more of their dissatisfaction towards each other. since Andie was the playful one among the two girls, we found her having fun during her pregnancy, doing crazy stuff yet worried about it later, which was acceptable because it was completely her character. in opposite, Lizzie was the serious one, anticipating every day for the baby's arrival but had an outburst that resulted to divorce eventually. but through the outburst, she finally stop hiding her true feelings and we saw growth in her character, which was rewarding.
