A young woman wanted to keep her situation private while being respectful of her family's social events. When a scary medical emergency happened, her plan went awry, and now family members are upset with her. So, she came to Reddit to ask:
I (23f) am currently 8 months pregnant. We had been keeping it a secret and planned to tell people around this time, but a few months after my pregnancy my SIL (26) found out she was pregnant, and then it just felt awkward to announce.
We wanted to wait for the right time. I’ve been with married to my Husband for only 6 months, but we’ve been together on and off since we were 14 (permanently together since we were 16).
When we were 17, we found out I was pregnant I had complications, I gave birth to my preemie stillborn at 25 weeks. So this pregnancy we’ve been extra cautious, and secretive.
