In agony from hours of labour, a mum-to-be couldn’t take her husband’s delivery room antics any longer. So her nurse decided to kick him out of the room, resulting in the new dad missing the birth of his first child.
But who is the a**hole here?
The new mum says she laboured for 26 hours, without a epidural, and despite the intense amount of pain she was in, her husband’s focus was elsewhere.
“My husband was constantly on the phone ether playing games or talking with with his ‘bros’ being really loud, when I asked him to please hang up he’d hang up the phone and then like 10 mins later call them back,” she explained on reddit.
“He really wanted to talk to them because his friends went on a boys trip without him because I asked to stay back so he could be here when I went into labour, they were calling to tell him about how their trip was going.
“He apologised to them, blaming it on me being a nag. I was really annoyed and told him if he wanted to talk to his friend he could do that elsewhere so I can be in pain in peace.
“He was like, ‘Alright fine baby I’ll just call them back later’. So I had about 20 minutes of peace, until his mum FaceTimed him where he proceeded to put me in the video call. His mum makes a comment about how she remembers when she was in labor with him and that she still did herself up, she even claimed she looked so good the doctor even was flirting with her.”
Nurse decides to kick out husband
As she continued to labour, through all of this distraction, the woman tried to push her feelings down and concentrate on her birth.
“I was holding back everything inside me to not say something as I didn’t want to disrespect my mother-in-law but at the same time she sometimes just makes the stupidest comments at the worst times and at this moment I could not stand talking to her.
“A nurse ends up coming in and could tell I was upset and asks me if everything was alright and I tell her I just really want to be alone. She ends up kicking out my husband and in turn he ends up missing the birth of our firstborn daughter because he left the hospital because he was pissed off that I got the nurse to kick him out the room.
“He refused to come see his daughter afterwards because he was angry at me for kicking him out, my mother in law who did visit me in the hospital wouldn’t stop taking about how I’m such a bad wife for removing my husband from the room.
“When I got home he kept on bringing up how I ruined a moment of bonding with his daughter and how he could never forgive me for that. Am I the a**hole for kicking my husband out the delivery room because he was making phone calls?”
