Pregnancy can be a very trying time.

Discomfort is one of the most common words to describe the process.

So it’s best to try and make a pregnant person comfortable for as long as possible.

Especially when you make a misstep around them.

Case in point…

Redditor EstablishmentFew289 wanted to discuss her experience and get some feedback. So naturally, she came to visit the “Am I The A**hole” (AITA) subReddit.

She asked:

“AITA for yelling at my husband when he ate some of my chocolate and making him drive across the city to replace them?”

The Original Poster (OP) explained:

“I am 8.5 months pregnant and driving sucks.”

“So my mom drives me around because my husband is working huge hours to get ahead before the baby comes.”

“Last month she drove me to my favorite chocolate stores and I stocked up on my favorite flavors.”

“The store has dozens of flavors of chocolate individually wrapped in colorful foil so you can tell the flavor.”

“The store is about an hour’s drive away from our home.”

“My husband knows my favorite flavor.”

“Half the bag was originally that flavor but by now it’s just even with the others.”

“He came home from work yesterday and after supper, we were going to sit and watch tv.”

“I waddled over to the couch and asked him to please bring me two of my chocolates.”

“He did and he grabbed a few for himself.”

“No problem there.”

“He came back to the couch with chocolate in his mouth.”

“When he kissed me I knew what flavor he took.”

“He admitted he took the stracciatella ones. My favorite.”

“I got kind of upset and he said it was no big deal, I could go with my mom and get some more.”

“Yes this company sells their chocolate everywhere but that flavor I’ve only ever seen this flavor in their store.”

“I asked if he has been eating that flavor a lot and his face told me everything I needed to know.”

“I yelled at him that it’s not like it’s easy for me to sit in a car for two hours.”

“He said he would go out right now and replace them.”

“He hit a couple of drug stores, and a couple of grocery stores they all told him the same thing.”

“So he drove across town and came back with a big bag of just that flavor.”

“While he was gone I called my mom and she said I need to calm down because my hormones are making me crazy.”

“I apologized to my husband but he is still grumpy that he drove around for hours just to get me chocolate.”

“I think he should know better than to eat my favorite flavor.”

“I know this isn’t as big a problem as some of the other stuff here.”

“So AITA?”

Redditors shared their thoughts on this matter and weighed some options to the question AITA:

  • NTA – Not The A**hole
  • YTA – You’re The A**hole
  • NAH – No A**holes Here
  • ESH – Everyone Sucks Here

Many Redditors declared OP was NOT the A**hole.

“I clearly recall sobbing during my first pregnancy over a brand of potato chips that was discontinued.”

“And my husband came home with an unsuitable (to me) replacement.”

“It was ridiculous, and years later, we laugh about it.”

“So will you.”

“Best wishes for a smooth birth and healthy baby!” ~ notreally121

“I vividly remember when I was pregnant with my son, ordering Hawaiian barbecue from a local restaurant, specifically the teriyaki beef.”

“My partner went to pick it up, and they had forgotten to include the teriyaki sauce, that comes on the side, but is also what makes it so delicious (and, you know, teriyaki).”

“I cried hysterically, and couldn’t even rationalize why I was so upset.”

“My partner (bless him) drove back to the store and came back with boatloads of teriyaki sauce.”

“I’m not proud of that moment, in hindsight, but pregnancy really does make you a bit nuts, and food cravings are no joke.” ~ Bikini_Atroll

“I have another one!”

“I’m pregnant right now and all I wanted was a specific flavor of chips.”

“And my partner was going to pick them up on his way home from work.”

“I waited excitedly all day for my chips and he came home with another flavor because it’s the only one they had.”

“I cried and ate the whole bag of chips anyway… lol.”  ~ ScootieMcBoatie

“I was about 7months along and was getting my cat fixed.”

“I thought it was a girl cat.”

“I had that cat for about 6 months (got it when it was a kitten).”

“Named it a girl name. In that time I knew the sex of my kid.”

“I went off and bought girl stuff. A lot.”

‘Vet called me up said not an issue but the surgery will be a neuter not a spay the cats nuts never dropped and even he ran the blood test twice.”


“When I was somewhat coherent I called my doc and demanded them tell me how accurate their tests for the sex of the baby was and I already bought girl stuff. Hysterical.”

“There was zero getting through to me.”

“The whole world was out to destroy me.”

“It’s okay. Good luck OP!”

“I laugh hysterically about it now but at the time I was def hysterically crying!” ~ Dangerous_Aspect_905

“During my pregnancy, I loved guacamole cups.”

“I had two left that I was planning to take to work.”

“I get ready to leave and there’s only one left.”

“My husband thought that the other was fair game. I cried.”  ~ Hellisfor_heroes

“When I was pregnant with my last all I wanted was milk.”

“Just plain milk.”

“I went and bought 2 gallons because I would drink a gallon by myself in about 3 days.”

“When I got home from the store and opened the hatch on my car, to grab the milk, both gallons of milk fell out and busted open in my driveway.”

“I bawled. Like full-on sobbed.”

“My husband was so sweet and went to grab some more.”

“But I still laugh about it to this day because milk is so easily replaceable.”

“That saying there’s no reason to cry over spilled milk??”

“Well, I did cry. A lot.” ~ prettyinpink__

“First pregnancy, about halfway through, sitting at the table after work.”

“Husband says we are both tired, he’ll go pick up dinner.”

“What do I want, he asks?”

“I burst into huge, sobbing, ugly crying. I’m not a crier.”

“Husband was alarmed.”

“I managed to get out ‘I’m hungry but I don’t know what to eat.'”

“He backed away slowly, said he’ll be back in 30 mins, and came home with two different meals.”

“There’s no reasoning with the hormones.”

“We’ve now had 4 kids, 5 pregnancies, and laugh about that ‘what’s for dinner’ moment.”

“One day the chocolates will be a funny memory.”

“Best wishes for a safe delivery.” ~ nitehawkj94

“My hubby brought home vanilla ice cream while I was on enforced bedrest with my first.”

“I cried on and off for two days .”

“I asked him why he didn’t love me?”

“He got frustrated at my reaction and I yelled at him that he’d never seen me eat chocolate ice cream in the 4 years of our relationship and him buying vanilla told me how little he valued me.”

“To this day there is always chocolate ice cream.” ~ Akblukimber

“This last pregnancy my husband picked up pizza on his way home one evening but my text for my very specific pizza didn’t get through to him, so he got one I would normally like.”

“I spent 30 minutes in the kitchen crying, got it together, then he asked why I hadn’t eaten anything yet and I started sobbing again.”

“My first pregnancy we were living overseas and I NEEDED onion rings and zesty sauce from Burger King.”

“I went every day fit a week and they never had the zesty sauce.”

“Finally one employee took pity and told me they don’t send it there because it spoils during the shipping.”

“I cried right there and he felt so terrible.” ~ AnnieBannieFoFannie

“NAH. In a year you will both be laughing about ‘chocolate gate.'”

“This is the real marriage stuff no one talks about.”

“You’re a team.”

“You’re hormonal and pregnant, he went and got your special chocolate.”

“I’d probably just start cracking jokes about it and say sorry for being a bit extra.” ~ sailinglola

“NAH. I think you’re given a little bit of a pass seeing as you’re 8.5 months pregnant, and it seems you’re genuinely remorseful.”

“You have a good husband and his actions to correct this should prove that.” ~ NotAMormon91

“Agreed. Also please don’t worry too much about the husband being grumpy.”

“A lot of times I’m grumpy while having to do things for my fiancée.”

“She doesn’t get that grumpily doing things is still love and commitment.”

“In fact, I think that’s the best love and commitment there is, where I’m tired but I still want to make her happy.”

“It’s easy to love when you’re happy, it’s harder (and thus more valuable) when you’re having it tough.”  ~ Incendior

OP came back with an Update…

“My husband is wonderful and he went out looking to replace my chocolate.”

“After he didn’t find it nearby HE CHOSE TO DRIVE ACROSS TOWN.”

“I didn’t force him to do it.”

“When I said I made him do it I meant he did it to make me happy.”

“Sorry for any confusion.”

Well OP, Reddit understands your plight.

Even when not pregnant one must protect their chocolate.

But when pregnant and uncomfortable?

All bets are off.

Sounds like hubby just needs a breather.

Good luck and congratulations!
