People say a lot of things they regret in the spur of the moment but even though we want to take it back, we just can't. A woman who just gave birth to her third child says that things have been pretty weird at home. Childbirth is not easy and it takes a lot of time and effort to look after a newborn baby. Since the woman's been recovering from her pregnancy, she revealed on Reddit that her husband has been doing a lot of chores. I gave birth to our third child a few weeks ago (four to be exact) things as you can imagine have been hard especially since I’ve not been well enough to do most things so everything nearly falls on my husband, well tonight we fought about me needing to do more

She told him that she's trying her best but it's just too exhausting. I told him that he wasn’t there for the two weeks I was suffering in the hospital nor did he witness what the baby went through he then started screaming I was throwing it his face. She added that she knows it wasn't his fault that he couldn't visit, but she just wanted to tell him that it wasn't easy for her, either. He then started saying I was probably pretending because I was back to myself within days of our other kids. This ticked her off, because each pregnancy is different. This royally pissed me off so I shouted at him that while he wasn’t there afterwards he was there while I went through hours of labour

The woman revealed that she had to be rushed to the operating room because both her's and the baby's life was in danger due to some complications. At that [moment] everything went quiet for a few seconds and he calmly said “I wished you died watching you on that bed I prayed you’d bleed out.” The OP revealed that she just didn't know how to react to something so mean. I was too shocked to say anything at that moment so I checked on the baby when I came back he was going to bed and I asked him about it he first tried denying it then said he didn’t mean it like that, when I wouldn’t drop it he told me fuck off he was going to sleep and ignored me.

This interaction had a very negative effect on the woman and she wound up bawling all night, trying to get over the meanest thing someone has ever said to her. So here I’m crying in the living room feeling like shit because my body won’t allow me to be a fucking good mom even though I’m trying, I’m, but I’m in so much pain and the one person I thought I could count on just turned on me. She then asked fellow Redditors what she could do to set things right. What can I do to make this all right with my husband should I forgive him and put it down to stress or should I ask him to go see a family therapist?

One user shared: Woah ...what the actual f...I’m am so sorry. First of all, you don’t deserve that. One. Two, the fact he doubled down and told you to fuck off and ignored you...wow. Three, this will probably not get better. Like that is so hateful...I would be gutted asf. Either he increases his assholeness or he starts cheating or both. I’m not trying to be rude but men like that esp after a baby... they’re assholes I’m sorry. I think since he wish you died so bad you should leave him and be dead to him outside the kids. He needs therapy for sure. Everyone seemed to agree that this man had been thinking about it before the child was born, which does mean it's rather problematic, so the best thing to do would be to see a professional.
