Navigating pregnancy after a relationship has ended could be problematic, but many people seem to make it work. One woman thought she was going to face a lot of difficulties when she found out that she was pregnant after dating a man for three months.
She claimed that they had broken up and he had already gotten back together with his ex-girlfriend. During that time, she realized that she was pregnant with twins. At first, she didn’t think that he cared about the babies, but he was euphoric as his partner has been told that she would never be able to get pregnant naturally. Also, he always desired to be a father.
Everything was going okay until the girlfriend started behaving as if the children were hers and the mother-to-be was nothing more than a surrogate. The anonymous woman explained the whole incident in a group on Reddit. She asked the fellow users for some advice on the situation.
She wrote that she dated a guy named Joe for three months before he ended his relationship with her to get back with her ex, Kim. Right after they broke up, she found out that she was pregnant and now she was 24 weeks. She let him know and he was overjoyed. Later it came out that his girlfriend had fertility issues and would never be able to get pregnant naturally.
She continued saying that getting back together was impossible for both of them so he was still with his girlfriend. According to Joe, when he told Kim about her pregnancy, she had a nervous breakdown about her infertility and wanted to talk to her.
She met them at their house and Kim expressed her wish to be a part of her pregnancy because in the future she would be their stepmother.
Kim started being too bossy. She began texting her every day, questioning her about her eating habits, exercise, and moaning that her job wouldn’t let her take maternity leave as she wasn’t the one who was pregnant. She went to such great extents that she attended the virtual genetics counseling instead of Joe.
When it came time for her 20-week level two scan, they let her come with one guest and Joe suggested that she take Kim instead of him, which she didn’t agree for. At last, Joe came. She wanted to keep it a surprise for herself so that they could disclose it at the gender reveal party.
She put a pregnancy announcement on her social media and then Kim put up an announcement saying that they were expecting twins ‘the non-traditional way’ and how fortunate she was.
Then Kim threw a gender reveal party and posted it on social media. She was shocked that she wasn’t even invited. Kim also posted that she was planning a baby shower. To that, she commented that to stop treating her like a surrogate, that the kids weren’t hers. Joe didn’t have any rights or custody of the kids until they are born.
She called Joe and told him about all the things his girlfriend was doing. She told him that she would not be seeing either of them until they went to the family court. She said that everyone was against her and Kim’s mother even called her to give one of the babies to them.
Many people responded to her post on social media. They were horrified by Kim’s behavior and asked the mum-to-be to seek legal help as soon as possible.
