It is often a thing of joy to share special moments with family. A Reddit user took to the platform to narrate a recent experience with her family following her pregnancy announcement.

The user revealed that she recently found out she was pregnant and decided to let her family know the good news. Due to recent global challenges, she could not tell her family in person and decided to go for other options.

The pregnant user said that she decided to set up a zoom call to inform sisters and parents of her pregnancy. She told other users that her niece had died four years ago from SIDS.

Her sister and brother-in-law were finding it difficult to cope with the situation even though they have other children. The user felt she made the wrong decision by deciding to include them in the family zoom call.

She decided to keep the announcement simple. She told them that the pregnancy was early and she was excited about it. On how she announced, she asked her parents what they thought about being grandparents again.

She asked her niece and nephew about being big cousins. Everyone in the family was excited aside from her sister and brother-in-law, who she said were quiet.

Shortly after the announcement, she got a text message from them saying that they were disappointed that she did not include their late child at any point in the conversation since she will be a cousin too.

The user revealed that she felt slightly guilty about not mentioning her niece in the conversation, but on the other hand, she thought there should be no sadness on her big day.

Reading her story, other users dropped their comments. One user commented that it was not the right place and appropriate time to bring up her dead niece.

Another user remarked that it would have been more difficult for her to bring up her dead niece because she would not have known how that would make everyone feel.
