Men Are Sharing Their #PregnantWife Problems, And Yep, These All Sound Right
Sure, women do all the heavy lifting during pregnancy, but their partners have quite a bit to “put up with” too. She’s carrying your child; when she says jump, you best day how high, dear? Men on Twitter are sharing their #PregnantWife problems, and we have to say, these all sound completely reasonable. From the wife’s point of view, we mean. Carry the baby, get everything you want. That’s just how it works!
You have to consider just how much work she’s putting in, and weight it against what she’s asking you to do. Is she asking you to build her a bridge to the donut shop so she can walk there whenever she wants? No, she’s not. She’s asking you to just get her some donuts, which honestly, who doesn’t want donuts? And it doesn’t matter if she’s asking you to get her those donuts at 3 a.m. There’s a reason donut shops are open 24 hours a day in a lot of places. So complain all you want, husbands. But man up and get it done. When you see her in that delivery room working harder than you’ve ever worked in your life, you’ll realize that a personal walking bridge to the donut shop really isn’t that outlandish a request.
#PregnantWife problems are about what you’d expect. She sends you out for popcorn and you get the wrong kind. Or she yells at you for eating her food. Even getting a jump on decorating for Christmas is a reasonable request.

As far as I’m concerned, any day after Halloween is fair game. And she’s right, trees need to be fluffed. It’s become completely socially acceptable to start decorating for Christmas early. Maybe she wanted to make sure she would be able to reach up and place some decorations! Those little things we take for granted become a bit more difficult when you’re gestating an actual human being. Besides, it’s a scientific goddamn fact that Christmas lights make everything better. So put up the tree, and put a present for her under it while you’re at it. She certainly deserves one.
