Imagine being 6 months pregnant and excited to share the journey with your family, only to have your stepmom constantly criticize and belittle your choices. 😞 That's the reality for our 22-year-old mom-to-be, who's been dealing with her stepmom's negativity since the beginning of her pregnancy. With her stepmom's history of resentment and favoritism, it's no wonder there's a rift between them. But when our expectant mom decides to limit contact and not invite her stepmom to a 3D ultrasound, she receives a message from her stepmom's boyfriend that leaves her questioning her actions. 🤔

Pregnant and Fed Up with Stepmom's Negativity 😩

Our 22-year-old mom-to-be has had enough of her stepmom's constant criticism and negativity throughout her pregnancy. From reacting poorly to the baby news, to belittling her parenting choices, and even disagreeing with the baby's name, it seems like nothing is ever good enough for her stepmom. 😒 So, when it came time for a 3D ultrasound, our expectant mom chose not to invite her stepmom, fearing more negative comments. Instead, she invited her boyfriend's mom and grandmother, who have been nothing but supportive. But when her stepmom's boyfriend sends a message accusing her of leaving her stepmom out, our pregnant protagonist wonders if she's in the wrong. 🤷 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
