Being pregnant is a blessing. For some to have a child is not easy they need to go through a lot. However once a woman is pregnant she does love the care and attention given by her husband and loved ones. But what if the love and attention by the husband is a bit overboard? Read the story and let us know what this mom-to-be should do.
I f26 have been together with my husband Austin m35 for 3 years. He was married before me but divorced his ex wife because she couldn’t have kids.
Ever since I became pregnant he did a complete 180°, he became obsessed by constantly watching my every move and breathing down my neck. He even hung photos of the sonogram!. He also came up with a list of what I’m allowed and not allowed to do, like not driving, not eating certain foods, not working but I stood my ground and continued working, also not wear high heels or watch certain shows or see family unless precautions were taken. It has been exhausting for me already but he has made it 10x worse.
Yesterday, he woke me up at 7am and said we had to go to the doctor, I asked why since I wasn’t feeling sick and he said he just had a hunch and I had to skip work and go with him to the appointment just to make sure because he felt something was wrong. I said no but he went and called my boss and took the day off for me. I was just speechless but decided to just go to get it over with.
We got there after he kept scolding me for things I did the night before that might have caused a problem- but literally there was no problem. The doctor told us that but he asked her to check again and she did, he then asked her to check again then again…I couldn’t take it when he asked her again, I just got up, took my bag and walked out and left him arguing with the doc. I got into the car and went home immediately. He kept calling, then came home and started yelling at me for leaving in the middle of my “examination” and then leaving him at the clinic.
I blew up and told him I couldn’t stand his obsession anymore and that his paranoia made me feel paranoid and is beginning to affect my social life, mental and physical health and my livelihood. He looked at me then said that I hurt him with what I said and that he was just trying to make sure the baby was fine and I was being aggressive and irresponsible towards him AND the baby this entire time, he said I was acting like a neglectful mother when the baby isn’t even here yet then left and turned his phone off. This morning he’s acting distant and is expecting some sort of an apology for what I did. Am I overreacting?
