A pregnant woman, age 26, is having difficulty with her husband’s insensitive behavior after he insulted their unborn child’s appearance during a 4D ultrasound.
Their First Baby is Due in Three Weeks
The couple expects their first child together in three weeks, but the woman already has an eight-year-old from a previous relationship.
The woman, who has an overthinking nature and always carefully considers her words before speaking, finds it challenging to deal with her husband’s tendency to blurt out his thoughts without considering their impact on others.
She says her husband, age 30, doesn’t seem to understand social cues and tends to be awkward, but he refuses to seek professional help for it.
The Baby Is Ugly
The woman recently went for a 4D ultrasound, which clearly revealed the baby’s facial features. When she shared the images with her husband, she was excited to show him the photos, but he immediately commented the baby was ugly.
She became angry, refused to show him any more pictures, and asked him to leave the room. Her husband didn’t understand why his comment upset her, claiming she often called the baby names and said things such as “this little baby won’t get out of my ribs,” when she was in pain.
The woman disagrees, stating his comment was hurtful and insensitive, unlike her comments, which were expressions of frustration.
Are Hormones Making Her Overreact?
The woman admits she might be overreacting due to her pregnancy hormones, and asks if she is the one at fault. She also notes her husband might be on the autism spectrum, as both have discussed the possibility, but he has refused to get tested for fear of receiving a diagnosis.
Despite some comments suggesting babies are commonly referred to as “ugly,” the woman says her husband’s response was inappropriate, and she fears he might say it again when the baby is born.
While some may consider his comment normal, the woman found it hurtful.
Comments Like That Can Damage Your Kids
One Redditor responded, “In the beginning, my little big looked like Deadpool. In her 4D, she looked like she had her face pressed against the glass.”
This user said, “I’d be pushing him to get a diagnosis. Blurting out hurtful and stupid things can damage your kids later on. When I saw my granddaughter on her ultrasound, she had a horribly large nose. It was normal, but I kept my horror to myself. Your husband needs to learn that trick.”
What do you think? Is she overreacting due to hormones, or does her husband have an issue that needs to be addressed?
