Uh oh…you know how certain brides can be when it comes to…well, pretty much anything…
And you better believe that some women are gonna be upset if a friend who is in their wedding happens to be pregnant on the big day.
So is this woman an a**hole for getting pregnant before her friend’s wedding?
Take a look at her story and YOU be the judge.
AITA For Getting Pregnant Right Before My Friends Wedding?
“My (28f) friend Sarah (26f) is getting married next week and I’m her MOH. I should be excited, but this whole situation has caused me a lot of anxiety because I’m 8 months pregnant and she isn’t happy about it.
You see, Sarah and her fiancé Dave got engaged two years ago and decided they’d get married on their anniversary which is so sweet and very them.
As Sarah’s MOH, I’ve been helping her plan and navigate through all of the many complicated feelings that go with being a bride- especially with setting boundaries with family members who don’t understand that this wedding is about Sarah and Dave and not them.
One of the major setbacks was the fact that they want to have a childless wedding. Because of Sarah’s anxiety, I took up deescalate some of her family members that demanded to be “the exception” and was able to help talk down all of the people who felt entitled to this wedding.
All was well with the world until I found out I was pregnant. My husband and I have been actively trying to have a baby for the past few years with no luck.
I have some medical issues which make having children extremely challenging for me, and when I found out I thought Sarah would be happy for me but she told me I was incredibly selfish.
She did the math and figured out I’d be due around the date of her wedding- which (she reminded me) I knew about well in advance. I tried to explain myself, but she wouldn’t hear it. She said if I was really her friend, I would have planned around her wedding.
I told her I realized she was hurt, but I wasn’t about to put my plans on hold for her. She got even more upset. She didn’t understand how I could spend all that time telling her loved ones not to bring children to her wedding only to turn around and do it myself.
I was shocked. I’m not due until the week after her wedding so technically wouldn’t be bringing a baby to the wedding.
She then expressed how she was concerned about me going into labor at her wedding and started crying. I assured her that wouldn’t happen, and for the past couple of months she’s been bringing this concern up to me repeatedly and making comments about my body changing and the pictures, etc.
She’s mentioned more than once she’s worried I’ll be taking attention away from her and now I’m starting to believe it.
Last night some of the other brides maids went out drinking with Sarah and I guess my pregnancy came up again because I’ve received quite a few texts and snaps telling me that I’m a bad friend and don’t deserve to be a part of this wedding. They’ve even called me an AH for planning my pregnancy during the wedding.
Now take a look at what folks said on Reddit.
One person said this woman is not NTA and she needs to lose this “friend”.
Another individual argued that this woman is not her friend at all.
And this Reddit user said her friend should be happy for her…but we all know what happened…
What do you think about what happened?
