Upset Mom Refuses To Reveal The Gender Of Her Child To Her Husband
Finding out a baby's gender is a big deal these days. Many people are throwing a party to find out the gender of their baby. However, an upset mom refuses to reveal the gender of her child to her husbandafter he skipped the scan to go out to eat with one of his buddies.
The woman who was pregnant went to Reddit to talk about her situation and ask if she did the wrong thing by not telling him. Reddit is an American website where people can share news, rate content, and talk about it.
Here is the whole thing she wrote on Reddit:
The unnamed woman claimed that although she and her spouse were happy to welcome their new child, her partner had previously missed doctor's appointments not once but many times. She stated that her spouse is willing to forego the doctor's appointment in exchange for soccer, a drink, or a board game with friends.
And most recently, the woman had reached her "last straw" when her spouse abruptly informed her that he would be unable to attend the gender reveal scan because a friend had invited him out for fish and chips. Here, he chose to go with his friend instead of helping and supporting his wife, so it seems like he doesn't care.
The comment section of the post has been flooded with contributions from members of Reddit, the vast majority of which support the woman's position. For example, one Reddit user is upset with the man and mentions that he is "incredibly selfish." The post reads:
This. To be clear, this is NOT a gender reveal appointment - it is a full anatomical scan in which they check every organ and limb for potential issues, and as a side note, can also often tell you which genitals baby will have. So partner is not just skipping a ‘gender reveal’, but leaving their pregnant partner to attend a lengthy appointment on their own during which they could possibly receive concerning information about the development of their baby - if there are issues, it’s often during this scan that they are discovered. Partner is incredibly selfish, and showing their true colours- somethingkooky, a Reddit user
A second added:
People keep saying this, but it’s not the baby that needs him at those appointments, it’s OP. No matter how good a dad he turns out to be, he’s failed as a husband already. He’s basically saying 'I don’t see any point in supporting you when I could be eating friend fish with people I do enjoy.' OP, loose this idiot- TheBaddestPatsy, a Reddit user
A third reddit user shared:
My ex pulled this with our second child, and I caved and told him. I shouldn't have. You need to seriously reconsider this relationship. He's showing you that he and his friends are more important than you and the baby. He sees going to appointments with you as punishment, not as a chance to make sure you and the baby are healthy. Don't be like me and stay until he leaves you for another woman.
The woman then updated the post, adding that her husband had attempted to contact the doctors to obtain the results but was unable to do so because of some circumstances. According to her, this did not go well, and the pair ended up having another quarrel about it. She posted:
Hi, so, first of all, wow!!! I did not expect this to blow up. Sorry, can't answer any comments because of feeling overwhelmed...um I just wanted to mention that my husband just attempted to contact my dr to get the results. It didn't go well and we had another argument over it. He couldn't get it since his mom was the one who made the call.
