Well, this sounds like a tricky one

Telling your significant other that you won’t take them to the hospital every single time they feel a little bit of discomfort?

Sounds kinda harsh, right?

But is it harsh in this case or is this guy just standing his ground?

Take a look at what he had to say and see what you think.

AITA for telling my girlfriend that I’m not going to drop everything to take her to the hospital anytime she feels any discomfort?

“I’ll try to remain as least biased as I can.

I (27M) and my girlfriend (21F) are expecting our first baby at the beginning of May. This pregnancy has been nothing short of chaotic. My girlfriend has never experienced pregnancy and she’s terrified to give birth, so any feeling of discomfort she freaks out.

I understand that pregnancy is hard and scary, and my girlfriend doesn’t have her family around to help her, so she’s probably experiencing a lot of anxiety. I’m not trying to downplay that. I’m frustrated because I feel like she’s taking advantage of the fact that she can get me to do things for her just because she’s pregnant.

We got into a fight a few days ago. She insisted that she didn’t feel good, and she thought something was wrong with the baby. She wanted to go to the hospital to make sure everything was okay. We’ve been to the hospital for this kind of “emergency” almost four times since the beginning of her pregnancy.

I had to go to work because we are severely understaffed, so I told her that if she still didn’t feel good tonight we could go make sure everything was okay. She got upset with me, and she told me that I never take her pain serious. I told her that I can’t drop everything any time she feels any discomfort. Pregnancy is uncomfortable. We argued some more then I left for work.

When I got home I asked if she was feeling better, but she wouldn’t tell me. She has stopped talking to me about her pregnancy now, and I feel like she is being manipulative. She’s withholding information about my child because I didn’t drop everything to take her to the hospital, again. I tried explaining to her my side of things and I apologized, but she’s still mad at me.

My girlfriend is treating me like I’m the a**hole, but I feel like she isn’t seeing how frustrated and tired I am from dropping everything for her.
