Woman Accused Of Ruining Best Friend’s Wedding By Announcing Her Pregnancy!
A woman has been accused of ruining her best friend’s special moment after announcing a pregnancy on her wedding day!
The anonymous British woman took to discussion forum Reddit to say that after trying for five long years to conceive she was so ecstatic to finally be pregnant that she wanted to share it with all her closest friends and family. The couple had been trying for years to conceive naturally after being told their chances weren’t great due to low sperm count and endometriosis.
Posting on Reddit, she told how after falling pregnant, she shared the news to her university friends on her best friend’s wedding day – leaving the bride ‘furious’ that she had ‘made the day all about her’.
Discussing the wedding which took place in January, the woman said: ‘My husband and I have been trying for a baby for over 5 years. When we went to a fertility doctor, we were told my husband had a low sperm count. A few months later I was diagnosed with endometriosis, making our chances of natural conception incredibly low. We decided we were going to try for another year and then look into adoption. I found out in November that I’m pregnant and due in early August.’
Commenters on Reddit quickly took to the comments section to tell the woman that the bride had every right to be angry. In fact many said it was down right selfish for her to share the pregnancy news on such an important day for her best friend.
One angry user wrote: ‘You clearly knew your pregnancy announcement was a huge thing if you wanted to tell everyone in person and have been waiting as long as you have to be able to conceive. Weddings and pregnancies are both high on the life achievement board. You should have just had your own party instead of hijacking someone else’s.’
‘Regardless as to whether it was a big announcement or not you knew the weight that news carried and picked a very bad place to tell people’, raged a second. ‘It’s common courtesy to avoid big news at a wedding. What you did was incredibly rude and you should apologise.’
A third wrote: ‘This was not your day. Not the time to turn focus to you. Your friend has every right to be angry. Surely there was a different time or way to do this, your infertility struggles don’t give you the right to hijack someone else’s wedding day.’
While another agreed: ‘It was her day and you ruined it by making it about yourself. You should have waited to tell people till the day after. I can’t imagine being so selfish as to not consider your supposed best friends feelings about you taking the spotlight on her special day. ‘
