What is pregnancy a lot of a doctor’s appointment. And if you are considered at high risk, it can mean even more. He saved it so he could attend an appointment. But this single father doesn’t show up for his pregnant wife’s autopsy scan for selfish reasons, and Reddit justifies the wife’s glowing reaction.
On the “Am I The A-hole?” subreddit, the mother wrote about how “excited” she is expecting her first baby with her husband. There is only one problem with her. When it comes to his father’s duties, this guy is suspicious he’s MIA.
“He rarely goes to the doctor’s office with me, and his excuses don’t hold up,” she wrote. His response is always ‘I’m not carrying a baby so why should I go with you to the doctor?
Excuse me what? A woman already knows that she has to do all the work to grow a tiny human in her own body (RIP baby breast). Such as foot massage and late-night food run, Minimum Things partners can do to support their pregnant partners. But this garbage man doesn’t have his own body, so you think you can play with her friends? Excuse me!
“Last week was the final straw,” the mother continued. “He was supposed to come with me to the baby gender reveal, but his friend invited him over for a fish and chips meal, so at the last minute I decided not to come. I was pretty furious. But I didn’t make a fuss about it, my mom went with me instead.”
Fish and chips? Fish and chips? ! How does that compare to this appointment that finds out the sex of the baby and probably also does a full anatomical scan? What a jerk.
Getting worse. “He then texted me asking to tell me the results (boy or girl), but I refused to tell him,” she wrote. Did you have the courage to ask her the results after that? Get over yourself, sir.
“He kept calling me and I hung up each time,” she continued. “He came home angrily and demanded to be told the results, but I refused and told him bluntly. He called me mean and immature for doing this.” , punished him. He said he was the father and had a right to know.”
Oh, you didn’t bother to attend appointments because you weren’t “holding a baby” before, but suddenly “He’s the father”? Yes, it’s a grade A hole.
She continues: I said he doesn’t get result period. He was angry about it and told his family.They are now pressuring me to stop playing mind games with him and talk to him but I declined. A man calling his family and bullying his wife when things don’t go their way?
A Redditor raged on her behalf. 1 comment — 68,000 likes! – Said. A father who died before the baby was born.
So. I’m crazy. truth. Another wrote, “I’d drop a friend if he found out that he prioritized fish and chips over his wife’s and baby’s doctor’s appointments.”
“What was LMAO for? Fish and Fucking chips? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha,” wrote.
Someone else also called out this man’s family for their strange reactions.
“Summoning flying monkeys to attack unruly spouses,” wrote one. Another said: A grown ass adult cries to mommy because his wife won’t do what he wants. How can you respect someone who does that? “
“Why doesn’t his family care his butt about missing a doctor’s appointment?” someone else said. “You are supposed to go through this together.” I have to agree. They wonder if he A) doesn’t know the whole story, or if he B) showed him the way down his hole in the first place.
Others said the typical “gender reveal” appointment was an anatomical scan, which “checks all organs and limbs for potential problems, and as a side note, often finds out which genitals the baby has.” You can know if you have “So rather than simply skip the ‘gender reveal’, partners leave their pregnant partners to attend a lengthy appointment alone where they can receive information about their baby’s development.” , it’s often this time of year.Scan that they’ve been spotted.Partners are incredibly selfish and showing their true nature.Absolute IRS.”
One broke it for his wife. He’s showing you who he is and what his priorities are. Do you really think anything will change in the long run? I prioritized the chips…it doesn’t get much cheaper than this.”
“If he said to you, ‘I don’t have a baby, why should I go to the doctor with you?’ You have to take care of me!?’ Come quickly,” someone else warned.
The OP edited her post to add an infuriating update. “My husband has just tried to contact my doctor to get results,” she wrote. so he couldn’t get it.”
Oh, God. Couldn’t you even call the doctor to find out the baby’s gender? Boy, goodbye! He needs a personality transplant ASAP. OP, you and your baby deserve better.
