The struggle is real when you have a #PregnantWife

Being pregnant is hard. You know what else is hard? Living with a pregnant woman. I won’t say that it’s harder than actually being pregnant, because, hello. But dealing with the emotions, hormones, and requests of a pregnant partner can definitely be a challenge.

That’s why the hashtag #PregnantWife has become so popular on Twitter — dudes have 99 problems and their pregnant wife is apparently like, 97 of them.

The tweets are hilarious, light-hearted, and manage to sum up every minor obstacle a husband faces when trying to please his wife as she incubates their offspring. She wants her foods — and she wants them now. God help you if you touch the thermostat once she’s happy with the temperature, and don’t even think about turning down her request to put up the Christmas tree whenever she damn well pleases. It’s your pregnant wife’s world, bro — you just live in it.

Better head home — and bring nachos to be safe.

OK, this is a legitimate problem that needs solving and also, the reason I primarily wore flip-flops all winter in my very snowy climate while pregnant with my son. Until someone figures this out, it’s on the husbands.

Don’t take it personally if food tops every other thing in her life.

You said “love.” She said “chips and dip.” When you’re pregnant, that shit is automatic.

This is more than reasonable.

If she needs it out in July you best get on it, buddy.

You better be.

Whatever you did has just flown out of her brain because, chocolate cake. See? He’s learning!

Learn to adapt.

Always remember that what she sent you out for might not be what you end up having to fetch. Though maybe you should retrieve both the initial thing she requested, the thing she actually settled on, and four more solid options — just in case.

This is a thing whether I’m pregnant or not, to be honest.

Just stop breathing — is it really that hard?

She’s being more than generous.

Oh, she’s a benevolent one.

The mood swings are real.

So we change our minds from time to time IS THAT OK?

No lie.

That’s a lot of notes but if you only save one, let it be this: take our ice cream and prepare to die.

Let her win the cheese arguments, OK?

Just let her have the last say on all things cheese. All things food, actually.

Just roll with it.

She’s fresh out of fucks and isn’t worried about your feelings anymore, bro. Way to roll with it.

Good luck out there, husbands.
