I think I messed up.... — The Bump
3rd Trimester

I think I messed up....

If there is one thing I hate is when my husband pressures me to feel sorry for him. Yesterday he made me feel so bad I went ahead and told him I would pump (at 34 and 0 days) to try to induce labor so he can have his break for the arrival of the new baby. I cleaned my whole apartment and did the entire laundry after pumping to try to get things going. Well the only things I got going were muscle aches in my entire body, two isolated contractions and so much abdominal pressure that I almost can't stand. I can say this is the worse night I have had in my life by far and I'm facing it alone because the guy is too tired to care to ask how I'm feeling. I am not a happy person right now. Needless to say, I will never go to these extremes again just so the guy can a few days off because he doesnt like his job, poor him.

  • Don't get your panties up in a bunch. I was induced at 35 weeks with my first and he was 10 pounds 11 ounces, vaginal delivery and was only in NICU for two days because he was born with meconium. With this baby I am currently in the 80 percentile in size. What can I say, I make big babies. I have an ultrasound on Wednesday and dr. said they might induce me early with this one too. I am not offering my kid's soul to the devil over here okay? Calm down.

  • Oh my my my!!!!!!!!
  • What the actual fuck. I cannot believe I just read that. I have never heard of anything so irresponsible and stupid. Why would you intentionally put the health and well-being of your child at risk?
    This.... WTF were you thinking OP?

  • Shakes her head and walks out of the thread. I feel my blood boiling this was so selfish.

  • I hope it's mud too... Each pregnancy can be different and as @crunchymamaof2 ‌ said, big birth weight doesn't have to do with other vital organ development.

    OP I wasn't getting my panties in a bunch- my DS was delivered at 34 weeks, had severe reflux, brachy cardia as well as other issues from being born prematurely. March of dimes recommend reaching 38 weeks unless dr recommended and you did not initially say anything about your dr possibly recommending early induction. God help your baby!

    I seriously hope this is MUD
  • I am shocked you tried self inducing at 24w0d. Yes OP, you did mess up. Sincerely hope this is MUD.
    What did you expect anyone to say? Sorry you feel bad?

  • Wow...you attempted to induce labor at 34w, cleaned AND did laundry just so your husband can get time off? And this guy is to tired to notice how much pain you are in? Hmmm...just from this small window into your life, I have some serious questions about the health of your relationship. If he is so tired, how will he help when the baby does arrive? Are there other situations in your life where you put his needs above yourself and the health of your children? Counseling (individual and couples) is something you should consider.

  • I want time off work as does my husband; I work 40 hours and he works 60. But we'd rather be working miserably than risk the health of our daughter. Your husband sounds like an insensitive prick. His job can't be so hard that he NEEDS time off so bad he is willing to risk your child's wellbeing. SMH.

  • If this is real, I am terrified for our future generation.

  • My BFFs x-husband told his job the baby was born a week before it actually was so he could enjoy his time off without having to deal with a baby, wife in recovery, and two other kids at home. He really thought he was being clever. Your H could do that- he sounds like that calibre of man who would.

    Although this guy ended up losing his job and his wife that week when both found out what he did. My BFF left him and said it was so much easier to be a single mom than a mom to a 35 year old man who can't even be responsible enough to go to work.

  • Dear God! I am judging the shit out of you.
    You do realize if your baby was born now they'd be in the NICU. Who gives a shit if it's only 2 day or a couple hours? That's a terrible thing.
    You and your husband sound perfect for each other.image

  • She better come back to shed some light on this shit.  My jaw dropped. What in the entire fuck? OP, you need to come back. I need to know what exactly your defense is, because this is totally and completely fucked up thinking it's okay to do this, to even think this?!

  • Probably not. I imagine she's sitting behind her screen reading everything though, so I'm going to remain hopeful...doubtful, but hopeful.

  • I just reached the third trimester, hence my first time on this board and.... What the fuck?! I'm a pediatric ICU nurse and see ex-preemies on a regular basis with major health problems. You want these potential life long problems for your kid so your baby daddy could have some time off work? Give me break.


  • Hasn't been active for two days....so she's going to come here to bitch but not bother to see what everyone has to say about it.

  • I just love how she says "Needless to say, I will never go to these extremes again just so the guy can a few days off because he doesnt like his job, poor him. "

     

    No, you definitely need to say that you will never do that again because it was totally fucked up that you did in the first place.

     

    I still can't wrap my head around how someone thinks this is okay to do. I'm appalled, disgusted, disappointed...I don't even know. Ugh.

  • This made me sick to my stomach. Who sits around and says, "Oh, let's induce preterm labor on the fly! Great idea! Fuck yeah!"
