People turn to the internet in times of uncertainty.
Whether it’s about random questions or when we feel lost and need advice, the internet can be our friend. Asking for advice and keeping yourself anonymous can bring your struggles to light when the right help comes along.
For this instance, Reddit became a hero for a pregnant woman seeking help.
In the famous sub-Reddit called AmITheAsshole, people can tell their stories and ask for advice from other Redditors to judge if the ‘Original Poster’ (aka OP) is indeed the “asshole” in the story or not.
Anyone can start a thread by starting the thread title with AITA (Am I the A-hole?) or WIBTA (Would I be the A-hole?).
And this is where Throwaway-twinmama shared her story.
She shared that her 30-year-old boyfriend left her for his ex, Kim (not her real name). It was at that time that she found out she was pregnant.
She told Joe (not his real name), and he was ecstatic about it.
But his Kim was not.
Aside from Joe having a child with his Throwaway-twinmama, Kim has infertility issues. This made her feel so insecure that she wanted herself involved in the entire pregnancy, which is not even hers to meddle with in the first place.
The OP tried to talk with Kim at first but was not comfortable with her demands.
Kim was starting to harass Throwaway-twinmama in a way that she meddles with her daily life, including her diet, exercise, and birthing plans.
Kim was also acting like this is hers and Joe’s children and that Throwaway-twinmama is just the surrogate.
She announced on her social media account that she and Joe were expecting to have a baby in a “non-traditional” way. She even threw a gender reveal party and baby shower without the OP knowing about it!
The situation made a dark turn.
Throwaway-twinmama called out Kim on her social media posts to stop what she’s doing. She reiterated that Joe has no custody over the child and that they’re taking him and Kim to the family court. This didn’t sit well with the couple. They (and their family and friends) told the OP that she’s an a–. Kim’s mother even demanded to give the other baby to Joe and Kim!
This made her run to Reddit and asked if she’s a complete A in this situation or not.
Gladly, other Redditors gave some sound advice. This one got the most votes – and made the most sense, too.
The original poster took the advice of fellow Redditors.
She filed a police report and consulted with a lawyer. Since there isn’t much that they can do because the child isn’t born yet, the only way she could safeguard her twins was to make sure she gives birth to a different state.
But somehow, this her Reddit thread reached Kim, and she was not happy about it.
Kim allegedly went to the OP’s office, wrecked her car and some office windows at her workplace. What’s worse is she works with kids, so Kim put children in danger with her actions.
Good thing that charges were filed against Kim.
We know it doesn’t end here, but we hope Throwaway-twinmama is going to win this battle.
And one thing’s for sure: she’s definitely not the a-hole in this situation.
