I meant to delete one message but accidentally deleted my entire convo history (thousands of messages) with a close friend. Can I get them back?

Details -
We both have iPhones- mine is an XR running 14.3, hers is a bit older.

We're still friends so if she can somehow facilitate sending them to me, that's doable. But it's years of messages. :((

I would prefer to get them back on my phone, but by email would be ok too.

I'm scared to revert to a backup because it seems to require deleting the whole phone and I can't tell when my phone was last backed up. How can I tell?

Tech skills: low to moderate... really clear directions would help me.
