Not uttering a word, she rose from the bed and went about her morning chores while I also get prepared for work. Ready for work, I went to say goodbye, and then, she burst my bubbles. I had expected her to at least say something and now when she was ready to talk, she spoiled my day even before the day began. She said, “I know you are happy about the pregnancy. Why will you not even be happy? When you are not the one to carry the baby…when it is not your life that will be on hold…when you can get to do whatever you want…when your life remains as perfect as it can ever be…only if you know what pregnancy feels like…but not me! when it is not your life that will change forever…why would you not be happy?”

I was left with no words but tears in my eyes as she returned to the room. I could not answer her question then just as I could not answer them now. My mind raced with thoughts of how unfair this seemed to be. It dawned on me how unfair life seems to be for women. In the past, women in their pregnancy were neither heard nor seen. They were like the shadows on the wall of a house, completely ignored and forgotten by everyone. But now it has been a while since the advances in technology, and it seems that everything is different now.

With the tension in the atmosphere, I left for work not knowing what I will come back to meet. The outburst was way beyond what I could imagine. Luckily, before I returned from work, she seemed to have spoken to her friend and her mum so, the atmosphere was calm already. A few days after, she went for a checkup at the clinic just to confirm the pregnancy. Just then, it became good news as it meant that we would now have a baby on our hands. We were excited and immediately started planning our future. However, because of this news, we did not anticipate how important it would be for us to make some changes in our lives.

To be continued…

Just before you run off, what do you think about my wife’s argument for getting angry because she was pregnant? Does getting pregnant really mean a woman’s life automatically goes on hold?

Let me hear your view in the comment section.
