A Reddit says she noticed things in her room were touched. She had a feeling it was her mother-in-law. So, she used a fake positive pregnancy test to prove she was the one snooping around.
She Had A “Huge Hunch”
The original poster (OP) said she noticed a couple of items in her bedroom were out of place. And these activities started after her monther-in-lawed moved in with her and her husband.
OP had a “huge hunch” it was her and shared her theory with her husband. But OP’s husband quickly defended his mom, saying she would never do anything like that. So, OP purchased a fake positive pregnancy test and placed it in the bedroom’s trashcan in a corner near the closet.

She Began Receiving Messages “Congratulating” Her
The next day, OP began receiving phone calls and messages from in-laws congratulating her on the pregnancy. Even her husband visited her at work and asked why she didn’t tell him she was pregnant.
OP asked her husband how he found out. He said his mom found the “positive pregnancy test” in the trash can.
OP pointed out his comment for him to realize she was right about her mother-in-law snooping around their bedroom. But he didn’t want to admit it. Instead, he wanted to focus on her “pregnancy.”

She “Broke His Mom’s Heart”
OP told her husband it was a fake positive pregnancy test. But he didn’t believe her. So, he made her take another test in front of him.
When OP proved she was right, her husband was upset at her for “lying.” He said OP broke his mom’s heart because she longs for grandchildren.

The Community Chimes In
Many Reddit users say OP’s mother-in-law didn’t have the right to announce the “pregnancy.” And the fact that OP’s husband didn’t want to acknowledge she was correct about his mom’s snooping raises some red flags.
Other Reddit users warn OP to check her birth control in the future. And make sure that “no one” messes with it.
Is OP wrong for placing a fake positive pregnancy test to prove that her mother-in-law has been snooping in her bedroom? Is OP’s mother-in-law wrong for announcing the “pregnancy” without OP’s permission? Did OP really “lie” when she didn’t say anything at all?
