I thought they said pregnant women start nagging at the 5th month or so; but I wonder why my wife’s own started on the very first day she came home with the pregnancy result which shows she’s just two weeks pregnant.
That day, she refused to cook. I asked her why and she said she can’t cook because she’s pregnant. I found it funny and laughed… “Two weeks pregnant?? And you can’t cook? Hahaha.”
She started crying saying I was laughing at her condition. I tried to apologise but she over reacted that day. She went as far as calling my mother on phone, telling her that I am not showing concern about her pregnancy. My mom called me and warned me never to neglect her and urged me to spend more time with her until she delivers.
Ok… That was how I turned into my wife’s house help. Although I can’t cook, but I learnt it by force. I can now cook. I wash, yet she still nags and complains. I turned into a decorator. I decorate the room for her like this now, she loves it, in the next five minutes, she hat£s it and I have to decorate it with another style.
She can wake me up at midnight to make her tea. Sometimes, the A.C will be on but she would prefer I fanned her with hand fan. Chei! Me John, I don see things! I asked my married friends, “Is this how your wives behave when they get pregnant?” They laughed and never gave me an answer.
Ok now, she’s on her seventh month and I am doing all I can to make sure she’s happy and never complains.
We spent the day all happy, took a walk, ate together and I spent the entire day cracking jokes for her. She was very happy that she forgot to nag or complain… then she went to bed.
I got hot water ready just incase she requests for tea at midnight. I have all kinds of fruits and foods stored in the fridge just incase she asks for any.
After that… I laid down beside her.
“Pheew” I exhaled. If I could keep up everyday like this, she wouldn’t be nagging anymore.
I was very happy because I finally found a way to keep her happy and entertained; and most of all, save myself from her nags. Now everything is perfect… I slept off beside her happily.
At around 2:00 am… she woke me up.
ME: “Do you want to drink tea?”
SHE : “No.”
SHE : “No.”
ME: Oh!…Food. Which one will I bring?
SHE: I’m not hungry. I don’t want any food.
Wooow! I couldn’t believe my ears. She doesn’t want to eat anything? Then let me continue my peaceful sleep. What a lovely day and a lovely night.
Not long after, she woke me again and asked…
SHE : “Honey?”
ME: “Yes Darling?”
SHE : “Do you know that petrol station called DVD petrol station at Aduwawa?”
ME : “Yes, what happened to it?”
SHE: “Take me there. I need to sm£ll their fuel.”
Infact, I didn’t even know whether to cry or laugh.
Kudos to all Pregnant women. It’s not an easy journey.
