Pregnant Woman Furious After Husband Drinks Nausea-Inducing Drink in Front of Her

Is it uncalled for to consume something around a pregnant person with something that makes them sick?

Pregnancy can be an exciting, but also a complicated, milestone. While there is plenty to look forward to when it comes to preparing to bring a new life into the world, there are also a lot of unpleasant symptoms that can accompany being pregnant.

Among the unpleasant symptoms can be nausea, back pain, extreme discomfort, hormonal fluctuations, extreme cravings, and the like. For many, these can be a reason not to get pregnant again in the future.

These realities were highlighted in a recent online post in which a pregnant woman is furious after her husband continues to enjoy his evening drink, despite the fact that it makes her sick.

Is it uncalled for to consume something around a pregnant person with something that makes them sick?

A Reddit post published on November 29, reported on by Taylor McCloud from Newsweek, has gone viral with 11,000 upvotes and 4,800 comments.

The author begins his post by explaining that his wife is currently 4 months pregnant, and the smell of alcohol makes her absolutely nauseous. Just one smell of any alcohol, either on someone’s clothes or someone’s breath, will make her throw up violently.

With this in mind, he adds that he ‘loves whiskey in the evening’, and while he’s tried everything he can to get rid of the smell of alcohol with mouthwash, showering, and changing clothes before coming into contact with his wife.

However, no matter what he tries, it doesn’t work. He even explains that he and his wife ‘haven’t kissed at night’ for months because of this. A few nights ago, he even told her that he ‘promised the smell was gone’, but as soon as she hugged him, she immediately ran to the bathroom and proceeded to throw up.

Should a partner be prepared to sacrifice to make their pregnant spouse’s life easier?

After returning from the bathroom, she adamantly told her husband that she ‘isn’t coming near him at night’ until she gives birth. She then stated that by drinking he was ‘being inconsiderate of her introduction to motherhood’.

The author told her she was ‘overreacting’ and being ‘quite disrespectful’ to him. She argued back that what he was saying was entirely unfair, and that it was not her fault she ‘can’t stand the smell of alcohol’.

What do you think? Is the author justified to enjoy his evening drink, even if it means he can’t go near his wife because the smell of him makes her puke? Or is his pregnant wife entirely correct in that her husband is being inconsiderate of her, and the least he can do is stop drinking near her out of respect for taking the burdens of carrying his child?
