A pregnant woman has vented her frustration online after her cousin tried to crash her baby shower, thereby announcing her own pregnancy – even after being asked not to do so in advance.

The mom-to-be explained on Reddit that she is currently expecting a “rainbow baby,” a term often used for a baby born after a miscarriage or other fertility issues.

The fact that the woman had been through difficulties trying to start a family made her baby shower all the more important to her, so she was determined not to let anything overshadow her and her baby’s big day.

When her cousin asked if she could announce her pregnancy at the party since her whole family would be gathered anyway, the woman politely told her no.

in the her postShe said: “My husband and I are finally expecting our rainbow baby after years of infertility and multiple miscarriages. It’s safe to say that we and our family are very excited!

“My mother is probably the most excited. She has been planning our baby shower and making decorations for months. She was the greatest help during this exciting but scary pregnancy.

“A few weeks ago my aunt told my mother and I that my cousin is pregnant. We are very happy for them. However, my aunt said that they want to announce her pregnancy at my baby shower since we are having a big party anyway. She said it was no big deal and we could both share the day.

“I said absolutely not because we’ve waited forever for this day and it was supposed to be just me and my rainbow baby. My mom is on my side and told my aunt not to announce anything at the party. My aunt liked it and nothing else was ever said.”

However, when the woman’s special day came, her aunt tried to sneak in a cake that would help announce her daughter’s pregnancy – but was stopped by the woman’s mother outside the venue.

After her aunt yelled at her to be let back in, the woman and her mother officially kicked her and her cousin out of the party, and recreation center security refused to let them back in.

But now the mother-to-be is being slammed by several of her family members over text messages and on Facebook, with some even saying horrific things about her imminent arrival.

She added: “Last Saturday was my baby shower and it was everything I was waiting for.

“When it was time for us to eat my cake, my aunt said, ‘Wait, everyone hold together’ and went outside to her car to get something. That was the moment I knew something was up.

“My mom and I follow her outside and my aunt decided to bring a cake to announce my cousin’s pregnancy and some gifts for my cousin. My mom immediately told my aunt that she wasn’t going to take these back to the convalescent center and she wasn’t going to ruin my day.

“My aunt had a fit and yelled, ‘This is a baby shower, this is for babies. [My cousin] is also having a baby, so this day is about her too!’. My cousin joins in the yelling now and says how pissed she is that it’s all about me.

“They wouldn’t stop screaming so they got kicked out by the recovery center security and half our family was upset that I didn’t give her a moment to shower so they left too. Now everyone’s hitting my mom, myself, and Rainbow Baby on Facebook, group family texts, everything.”

Commenters on the Reddit post were firmly on the woman’s side, with many of them saying her cousin should throw her own party if she wants to announce her pregnancy in this way, rather than hijacking someone else’s special moment.

One person wrote: “This was YOUR day that you have been trying to make possible for YEARS. If she wanted to steal the spotlight, she should have put the money, time, and effort into her own shower or announcement party.”

While another added: “In my opinion this is tantamount to a marriage proposal. You don’t go to someone’s party and make it all over yourself. Even if this wasn’t a rainbow baby, she would still be wrong to try to get your baby to shower with her.”
