S/O. A pregnant woman can't ask her husband to move furniture for her?!?!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Seriously?
What is with this "if he works and you don't he doesn't have to do shit"
What is this all about? I just don't get it.
What. A. Load.
Why is money the only deciding factor. This is a family. Not a business. He is not the boss. He is not in charge. I am not the boss. I am not in charge. Why is he so much more important because he makes money.
His most important investment is his children. It is in his best interest to take care of the person who takes care of his investments.

*i am not "her"*

It's not that he shouldn't move furniture, it's the tone and the expectations of the pregnant wife. She was sounding like a royal bitch.

my dh doesnt sit on his ass for work.

it doesnt matter if a man (or womans) job is physically exhausting or not. the fact is, said person is WORKING long hours to support their signifiCUNT other. a very ungrateful spouse at that.

 I'd love to be sympathetic, but you'll have to settle for empathy. We moved three times in three years. Move one and three were interstate moves, and I was eight and nine months pregnant,for the second and third move. And we didn't have movers. THe second move, at 8 mos. pregnant was just me and my husband moving an entire house on new year's weekend. And yep, I was hella pissed, having braxton-hicks like crazy and moving furniture and a couple of moving trucks. It happens, maybe the excercise will be good for you and the pregnancy

 I've wanted to know that too! My Dh works his butt off for us, and I try to do my best tending to him when hes home (getting him something to eat, glass of water, back massage, etc....): BUT when I need help with something, even though he is really tired he gets up and helps me or the kids.   My Dh has said that "all the hard work is worth it to have his family"

No, sir! I read her post. She said that her husband sells insurance. I want to know what part of sitting on his ass all day is physical? Can you explain how he does more physical labor than he would spending a day at home on the weekend?

yeah you'd think so.....but what if he doesn't do what you want him to do......then you have to do it yourself or figure out how to get it done.......

The woman that is being talked about was told not to lift and take it easy.



Quoting mich.el.le:

Of course you can ask him to help move furniture. But you're also pregnant, not disabled. Unless you're high risk you can move it too.

Oh it's not me! Lmao! I move furniture like a boss! And I was so determined to not let pregnancy slow me down that I regret not milking it for all it was worth!
