Dad-To-Be Causes Controversy Over 'Insensitive' Comments During Wife's Baby Scan
A dad-to be has caused controversy after admitting the 'insensitive' comments he made to his wife during their ultrasound scan.
"My wife started crying, and I was comforting her, when she said the words 'I can't believe I'm making a human being,'" the anonymous dad revealed on Reddit.
"I kept comforting her, but I waited a few minutes and, once the tech was gone, gently reminded her that we are both the parents, not just her.
"I also told her that she's 'making' the baby on her own is not accurate, since I provided half the genetic material."
While no one's denied his involvement in the actual conception, it seems he has rubbed a few people up the wrong way with his comments.
He continued to explain that his comments had led his wife to believe he didn't appreciate what she's "putting her body through to be pregnant."
"Obviously this is false," he claimed, "especially since her pregnancy has been so tough that I've attended at least two doctors appointments every month. I show her with actions, not words, that I appreciate her.
"I just don't think it's fair to claim I haven't contributed something to making our daughter. She is still upset the next day."
The man faced unanimous comments with Reddit users who told the dad-to-be he owed his wife an apology.
"You aren't making sh*t," one person commented. "All you did was shoot a load into her. She's the one dealing with an the body and hormonal changes. Get over yourself."
Later, the man returned to update Reddit users, telling them: "I'm an idiot. I don't know what I was thinking. I'm gonna apologize and make it up to her however I can."
