While being pregnant a woman wishes her husband to be there for her. With all of the difficulties that to be mom face throughout pregnancy, they deserve all of the attention and pampering they can receive. To be dads have a lot of obligations as well. Read the story to know why the wife didnt reveal the gender of the baby to the husband and do you agree with her decision?
My husband & I are expecting. This is our first baby and we’re excited. Thing is he barely attends any dr appointments with me and his excuses aren’t even valid. He’s willing to miss the dr appointment over soccer or a drink or board game with friends. His response is always “I’m not the one carrying the baby, why do I have to go see the doctor with you?”.
Last week was my final straw. He was supposed to come with me for the baby’s gender reveal appointment but he chose to not come last minute because his friend invited him to a fish ‘n’ chips meal. I was pretty livid but didn’t make a fuss about it. Mom went with me instead.
He texted asking me to tell him the results (boy or girl) but I refused to tell him. He kept spam calling me but I hung up each time. He came home fuming demanding I tell him the results but I refused and bluntly told him, since he refused to attend the appointment then he gets no results til after the baby’s born and said I was willing to die on this hill. He went off calling me spiteful and immature for doing this and punishing him. He said he’s the father and has the right to know. He then called me dramatic since I wasn’t alone and mom was with me. I said he gets no results period.
He’s been fuming about it and told his family and they’re now pressuring me to stop playing mind games with him and tell him but I declined. Am I going Overboard? What would you do in her situation?
