My brother, 20 M, just had his wedding.

We had planned the wedding so it wouldn’t overlap with my, 24 F, due date for me giving birth

But as any person would know, pregnancy rarely happens on the planned due date.

I was very excited to go to his wedding but the night before the wedding, my water broke

I was rushed to the hospital and called my brother immediately. I explained what happened and that I probably wouldn’t be able to attend the wedding but I could do it over Zoom, call, etc.

My brother was pissed saying that it would “ruin the wedding” and that my due date wasn’t for another week and that I should have told him

I had no idea since the due date was after his wedding, and I was surprised at his reaction.
After the wedding, my new sister-in-law, 20F, called me and told me congrats and that she fully understands why I couldn’t make it. I didn’t give birth till a day after the wedding so I was in the hospital for a full day.
I feel guilty for not going because I felt fine and I wasn’t giving birth at that moment. AITA?

Water breaking is the rupturing of the amniotic sac; the amniotic fluid is what nourishes and protects the baby. If you ignore it, you put yourself and your baby at risk. Hopefully your new SIL will explain to your brother how pregnancy and childbirth works 🙄

Um, wtaf? How is this even an issue? As a previous commenter has said, once your water has broken your baby's protective environment has gone and they need to be born. Also, you have no way of knowing how long your labour will last - some women have incredibly fast deliveries. What would your brother have done had you ended up delivering at his wedding?? You tried to plan but unfortunately babies a) can't read memos and b) don't have secretaries to organise their schedules (that'd be nice, huh?). New wife sounds much more sensible - hopefully she chews him out.
