In 2021, are women allowed to say they don't love being pregnant?
You might think this is a given. But for some people, it's apparently too triggering to hear that pregnancy isn't a cakewalk. And one mom is asking whether she did something wrong by revealing her pregnancy ambivalence to a woman who was struggling with infertility.
The woman took to Reddit to ask if she'd done something wrong by admitting that for her, pregnancy low-key sucks.
Background: I have always been career-driven. I have a good job (think executive level) and take pride in it. My husband also has a good job but nothing he is passionate about. I was ambivalent about having children to begin with but I was open to the idea as long as I didn’t have to give up my career or most of my lifestyle.
Before my son was born, my husband and I had many conversations about this and ultimately decided that he would be the one to step back from his career if and when the time came. Don’t get me wrong, I love my son and will love the new baby too but I really have no interest in staying home with my children.
