"Her selfish, immature behavior directly caused her blood pressure to skyrocket and her baby couldn’t handle it."
Pregnancies can be complicated and it is imperative that one takes a lot of care, especially if it's the doctor's orders. Recently, a woman took to Reddit to share an incident about her brother's wife. Apparently, the woman had a stillbirth a while ago. OP also revealed that this was her third pregnancy. The woman is also said to have faced complications during her first two pregnancies. The first two pregnancies, she had severe medical issues that required weeks of strict bed rest. OP then mentions how things aren't so easy for the woman because she and her husband are getting a divorce.
My brother and her do not have a custody agreement in place and essentially, she uses the first two children as pawns to hurt my brother (things like agreeing to let them visit, then changing her mind once he arrives to pick them up. She’s been doing things like that for months, keeping the kids away to hurt my brother) The woman, given her complicated pregnancies in the past, was ordered bed rest, but she still refused to allow my brother to see the kids which resulted in her chasing around a 2 and 5 year old while on strict bed rest. Because her husband wasn't a part of her life, she had to take care of the kids, as she had no one else.
The woman who shared the post explained the importance of listening to your doctor's orders because she herself had experienced something this traumatic. I had a similar medical issue with my last pregnancy, and they wouldn’t even let me turn the lights on because it could cause too much stimulation, which could effect my pregnant negatively. So, when she told the OP that the baby didn't survive, she lost it. When she told us about the baby not having a heartbeat because her blood pressure had been over 200/120 for days, I tore into her. Her selfish, immature behavior directly caused her blood pressure to skyrocket and her baby couldn’t handle it.
Most people commented under the post branding her as the asshole. One user shared: Of course you’re going to take your brothers side but I seriously doubt he’s been a saint. Surely you can’t be aware of all the sordid details and only a truly awful person tells a woman who just had a stillbirth that she killed her baby. If he cared enough about his children he could have enforced a custody agreement instead of having an “oh well” attitude towards the situation. Another added: Stress from chasing two kids around, or stress from a relationship breakup? You've not said one bad word against your brother but have critised her through this whole post.
Have you heard her side of why she changes her mind over things like visitation or are you going by what your brother says? Regardless, She is going theough something so painful that words can't express it adequately enough and then you add to it with something so cruel. A third shared: What the hell makes it your place to say anything to your ex SIL? She doesn't answer to you. You're far from objective about the situation since you're getting every bit of news filtered through your brother's point of view. Stay in your lane and out of her uterus. Do you think OP is wrong to have been this mean to her sil who just lost a baby?
