I’m 9 weeks pregnant and my fiancé (28m) passed away in my arms (28f) 2.5 weeks ago. He had a pulmonary embolism, we had no idea he had any clots in his legs and it was very sudden.
I called for help immediately and did everything I could, but he passed away in my arms and I felt completely helpless.
Two days after he passed away his family completely cut me off. They took everything of my partners from me and even some of my personal belongings too.
They took all of his clothes, our shared electronics, shoes, undies, bathroom stuff, photos, and furniture….even our shared dog of years.
They have not picked up any of my calls and I have no idea if they have even laid his body to rest yet.
His brother texted me that he will not pick up any call or tell me what is going on. I found out how my fiancé passed away from one of his coworkers telling me.
I went almost 2 weeks not knowing what caused it because of the lack of communication from his family.
Three days after he passed away I took a pregnancy test since my fiancé had been making jokes to me that I might be pregnant for a few weeks before he passed away due to my nausea and fatigue. I took 6 tests and they all came back positive.
Since we were not married yet I have no legal rights to anything and have been left with nothing. I feel very scared and alone.
I’m not only mourning the death of the love of my life and losing everything we built together for years, but I’m carrying our child.
This is the first time I’ve been pregnant and l’m not sure what to do. I have a doctors appointment scheduled for next week.
Do I tell his family I’m pregnant? I initially wanted to because I want this child to know where his or hers father came from, but with how I’ve been getting treated I’m now feeling very hesitant to tell the family.
What if they fight for the rights to my baby? I don’t even want to tell them anymore because of how they are treating me since his passing away.
