Am I nuts or do WAY too many people try to get into the delivery room with the couples who are actually about to have kids?
It just seems kind of strange to me…
But let’s get all the details before we make up our minds, okay?
Read on to see what happened!
AITA for what I told my Mother In Law when she asked to be in the delivery room?
“My husband (m33) & I (f30) are expecting a baby boy, We’re barely catching up with preperation and getting everything ready. His mom (kind of a busy body type but can be helpful at times) invited us for dinner and said she has an important request to make.
She brought her request up at dinner table and blatantly said that she wanted to be in the delivery room with me when I give birth. I was taken back by her request — I really thought it had something to do with the nursery or diaper brand. I said I was sorry but only my mom and my husband will be there.
She made a face, got quiet for a while then brought it up again. just kept pushing saying she is as much of a grandmother as my mom and that she just wanted to be there for support and get the opportunity to see her grandbaby’s first moments. my husband sided with her.
I just stared at her and said “it’s alright, you can have the opportunity to be in the delivery room when it’s your son who’s giving birth”. everyone stopped eating and my mother in law left the table in an instance. My husband had me got up although I wasn’t finish with dinner but he said we should leave.
In the car, he lost it on me asking “what brain cell” made me think it was a good idea to tell his mom that. I told him his mom kept pushing after I’d already given her an answer. still he said this was the most f**ked up s**t he heard me say. I replied that I was just frustrated and didn’t mean to hurt her feelings and cause issues.
He argued that if I don’t want issues then I should stop making s**t difficult and just say yes to his mom’s request. he then ranted about how it’s his son too and then said if his mom isn’t allowed in there then he won’t be there too. now I don’t know if he really meant this or just said it in the hear of the moment but it had me fuming.
He’s been ignoring me when I try to talk to him and act like I’m not in the room. I think I might have gone too far and created tension by responding inappropriately. AITA?”
And here’s how Reddit users reacted.
One reader said she’s NTA and that she just got a glimpse of the marriage problems in her future.
And this individual agreed and said she needs to prepare for the worst outcome possible.
This Reddit user actually thinks that the husband set this up…hmmm…
