It’s almost go time! My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Thore‘s best friend Ashley Baynes is pregnant and even though she admitted that her pregnancy was unexpected, she still has a ton of support from her bestie. Ashley previously asked Whitney to be her labor and birth coach, but now that it’s almost time for her to deliver her baby, it looks like she might be regretting that decision.
In an exclusive sneak peek from tonight’s episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney is trying to help Ashley relax so that she can go into labor naturally — especially because she had a false alarm due to her Braxton Hicks contractions. But Whitney’s way of helping Ashley to relax is by giving her a pretty unconventional massage, among other things! Watch the video below to see the hilarious sneak peek!
Whitney is definitely a great pal, even though she does pretty odd things like performing a pretty awkward interpretive dance routine to celebrate the upcoming birth of Ashley’s baby or taking her baby fever out on her cats by swaddling them with blankets and diapers.
But even though Ashley appreciated all of the comedic relief that Whitney provided for her throughout her pregnancy, she still worried about Whitney coming to terms with her own pregnancy scare from last season that turned out to be a false positive.

Whitney even admitted that Ashley’s pregnancy is forcing her to think about her plans for becoming a mother in the future, and she said she doesn’t even know if it’s even a possibility. “It’s hard because I don’t have a boyfriend — I can’t even get a date, and on top of that even if I had that, I have fertility problems,” Whitney said. “So it’s just a hard thing to face when you feel like you’re running out of time.”
