Pregnancy is no walk in the park, and for couples having a child together, it absolutely takes two to tango.
Given the toll pregnancy takes on a woman's physical and mental energy, it's only fair for the other partner to pick up the slack when it comes to housework and cooking, especially if both partners work. Still, open communication is always key, and not all couples come to clear agreements about how labor will be divided. This can sadly lead to resentment and misunderstanding all around.
AITA for telling my wife that we're BOTH pregnant?
I know this sounds bad, but hear me out. I'm using a throwaway cuz my wife uses Reddit, so please don't upvote this. I just want honest feedback.
My wife (29f) and I (27m) do well financially, so we decided to have our fourth child. Every single pregnancy we've been through my wife has been a complete nightmare. Some things I can deal with, like waking up to the sound of her puking her guts out every morning, but when she starts demanding I go to the store every day to get her snacks or set up her foot bath thingy because her feet are swollen, I get a little impatient. I work way longer hours than her in a much more physically demanding profession (I'm a plumber, she's an engineer) so I think we're putting an equal amount of effort into this baby.
