Pregnancy is one of life’s most joyful and wonderful periods, but it can also be one of the most stressful. It’s totally natural to go through an emotional rollercoaster, not to forget severe physical changes as your body adapts to accommodate a developing kid. That is why it is critical to obtain as much help as possible at this time. Unfortunately, not all are capable of doing so. Read the story to know what happened between this couple who are expecting a baby soon and how would you deal with such a situation?
My wife (28) and I (36) are expecting our first baby. 3 years ago my wife decided she desperately wanted a cat. I hate cats and all animals in the house really so I was against it. She wouldn’t stop talking so finally we made a deal she could get a cat but it was her responsibility I would have nothing to do with it she agreed.
She stuck to her word and I stuck to mine. I mostly ignore the cat. Now she is pregnant and asked me if I can scoop the litter until she gives birth because of toxoplasmosis but I looked it up and as long as she wears gloves and washes her hands she should be good. So I told her absolutely not.
She wasn’t happy but I reminded her of our agreement when we got the cat. I told her it was her responsibility and if she didn’t want to take care of it anymore with the new baby coming we can get rid of it and find it a new home. She said no and has been scooping the litter. Her sister was over and saw her doing this and flipped out at me telling how dangerous it is. But of course her sister is going to be on her side and overreact. I never wanted the cat so I don’t see how I’m wrong.
