Having a child is a very personal thing, and it’s important to remember that it’s your life, your choices, and nobody else’s. You are the ultimate decision maker and you have the right to have a say in every part of your life, especially when it comes to the future of your babies.

So when Reddit user throwaway-twinmama decided to share how her boyfriend’s new girlfriend started trying to control her pregnancy, it was very off-putting. The woman even went as far as throwing a gender reveal party without her present and telling her guests which gender her babies are.

This was the breaking point for throwaway-twinmama, who had enough of the controlling behavior and called her out. After the woman shared the story on r/AITA, people were divided about whether she was in the right or wrong. Some were supportive, while others were concerned about her safety.

Navigating the complexities of an unexpected pregnancy with a former partner and their current partner can be challenging. 🤔

When 29-year-old OP found out she was pregnant with her former partner's children, the situation only got more complicated. She soon learned that her former partner's current partner had fertility issues and wanted to be involved in the pregnancy. OP refused to let her be involved in the decisions regarding the pregnancy, citing that she would make the best choices for her children and herself.

After putting a pregnancy announcement on social media, her former partner's current partner threw a gender reveal party without even inviting OP. OP confronted her, and this ultimately led to a back-and-forth of accusations, calling out inappropriate boundaries, and even the involvement of the police.

How can OP navigate the complexities of this unexpected pregnancy? 🤔
