A woman who is 14 weeks pregnant
and studying for the National Board
of Medical Examiners (NBME) test.
is furious that her husband held
her study material hostage
when she didn’t have time to cook.
She took to Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to see who
was in the wrong. Her husband accused her of neglecting him,
but the wife felt as though she was being stretched too thin.
“I’m 14 weeks pregnant and it’s incredibly exhausting
studying hard for the upcoming exam and I can barely
find the time between the clinic, studying and self-care” .
“My husband has been getting a little
demanding lately and I noticed that especially
after I started preparing my exam,” she said.
“he’d come in and ask me to take some time to make him
dinner. I’d make him dinner then go back to studying then after
he finishes he’d knock on the door and ask me to do the dishes”.
“Just to make things clear and tell his side of the situation,
he says that I’m neglecting him lately and was upset that I
don’t do the things I used to do before I started studying”.
Reddit believed the husband should step up his game.“You are
pregnant, in medical school and studying for an important
exam. Your husband should make you dinner,” one user wrote
