Mom-to-be faces backlash over ‘narcissistic’ pregnancy announcement

A woman can't believe her sister-in-law (SIL) ruined her engagement dinner. She explained the dilemma on Reddit's "Am I the A******" forum. "My engagement dinner was on Tuesday. His and my family came as well as our friends … My sister-in-law approached me with her husband and handed me my engagement gift. I opened it to find a pair of baby shoes inside”. “SIL said, 'congratulations, you're going to be an auntie and uncle!!!.' She announced that she and her husband were expecting”. “I pulled my SIL aside and asked why she decided to announce her pregnancy at my engagement party specifically. She said she and her husband saw this as a chance since most of the family was there, and it's a double joy”. "I flat out called her behavior out and told her her announcement was at the wrong place, wrong time. She got all p***** and accused me of already resenting her baby”. “It escalated after she raised her voice, I asked her to please [leave]. SIL and her husband said they were going 'somewhere else' to celebrate and asked who wanted to join them”. “We had no choice but to end the party soon since most of my fiance's family wanted to go after giving me nasty looks”. "It’s fairly narcissistic," one person said. "What a bunch of mean girl crap," another wrote
