Expecting Mom Upset As Mother-In-Law Plans Vacation On Her Due Date, Online Community Views It As A Positive Twist
Being pregnant is a mix of happy and tough moments. As a pregnant woman, all the changes can be a lot; she might be more sensitive, tearful, or easily irritated. So she needs support from family members. When she doesn't receive care, she can get hurt and feel a bit lonely. That is what happened to this pregnant woman (OP).
She shared on the r/JUSTNOMIL subreddit that this was when she got pregnant with her first baby. Although she had told her in-laws about her labor, they still booked a vacation at the same time she was going to give birth. Her husband didn't see the issue with the in-laws' timing. And that hurt her a lot. Scroll down to read the entire story!
Here's the full story:
OP is 10 weeks pregnant with her first baby, but her in-laws will be on a two-week vacation during the expected birth window
The OP feels hurt because her in-laws have already been unsupportive during the pregnancy
Feeling hurt and unsupported, the OP turns to the internet for understanding.
Internet strangers chime in with different perspectives, suggesting that the in-laws' absence might actually be a good thing, allowing for more private bonding time with the newborn.
