couple expecting baby arguing at home pregnant fight

Her Pregnancy Cravings Led to a Domestic Feud Over Chocolates That Forces Her Husband to Make a Surprising Move.

The heavily pregnant Original Poster (OP) embarks on a sweet and unexpected journey triggered by her husband’s innocent indulgence in her favorite chocolates. The climax arises when the husband’s futile quest across town to replenish the chocolate stash, which was meant to douse the flames, only adds fuel to the fire. But just as the tension peaks, their world is interrupted by an urgent, life-changing event.

The Preparation

OP, heavily pregnant, finds driving uncomfortable. To alleviate this burden, her mom takes on chauffeur duties while her husband works hard to secure their future before the baby’s arrival. This arrangement gives them both peace of mind.

The Chocolate Journey

A month ago, OP’s mom drove her to her beloved chocolate store. The store, located an hour away, specializes in numerous flavors of individually wrapped chocolates. OP indulges herself, securing a stash of her favorite treats.

Favorite Flavors

OP’s husband is well aware of her preferred chocolate flavor. Initially, half the bag was filled with this flavor, but over time it’s dwindled along with the rest. It seems someone else has a sweet tooth too.

The Chocolate Request

Yesterday evening, as they prepared for a quiet night in, OP asked her husband to fetch her some chocolates. Without any issue, he obliged, returning to the couch with a few for himself as well.

OP notices her husband chewing on a piece of chocolate, and when he kisses her, she immediately recognizes the flavor – her absolute favorite. This revelation triggers a small outburst.

The Diminished Stash

Her husband casually suggests she restock the flavor with her mom, overlooking the challenge of the journey. But her favorite flavor is rare and only available at the distant candy shop. His guilt is all but confirmed when OP asks about his frequent consumption.

The Conflict

OP confronts her husband about the difficulty of the long drive. In response, he offers to head out immediately to replenish the stash. The situation, already heated, escalates into a domestic squabble.

The Failed Search

OP’s husband’s quest to local drug stores and grocery shops proves fruitless. Learning that they don’t carry that particular flavor, he decides to drive across town to the chocolate store. A considerable effort was made to mend the situation.

Mom’s Advice

In her husband’s absence, OP calls her mom for advice. Her mother suggests that OP’s reaction was amplified due to pregnancy hormones and advises her to calm down. A familiar voice of reason amidst the storm.

The Triumphant Return

Finally, her husband returns, arms full of bags containing only OP’s favorite flavor. His disgruntled expression mirrors the annoyance of the unnecessary trip. The solution has arrived, but the tension remains.

The Apology

OP, with some reservations, apologizes to her husband for the whole ordeal. However, he remains somewhat grumpy from the extensive drive for the chocolates. The peace offering does not instantly dissolve the remaining friction.

Should Have Known Better

OP feels that her husband should have known better than to eat her favorite chocolates. It’s a silent expectation that was left unfulfilled. She voices her sentiment, leaving the air slightly more tense.

Emotions Run High

Despite the intensity of the situation, OP acknowledges that her problem is minor compared to other possible troubles. She recognizes the scale of her issues but cannot shake off her frustration entirely.

Was The Woman’s Behavior Appropriate?

OP posts her story online for feedback. The readers in the forum had a lot of mixed views on the matter. Here are some of their responses:

Forum Responds

One reader said, “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 replacement. It was ridiculous, and years later, we laugh about it. So will you. Best wishes for a smooth birth and healthy baby!”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote, “I cried hysterically when my husband returned home with Hawaiian barbecue takeout but forgot the sauce. I couldn’t even rationalize why I was so upset. My partner drove back to the restaurant and came back with boatloads of sauce. In hindsight, I’m not proud of that moment, but pregnancy makes you a bit nuts, and food cravings are no joke.”

A Third View on The Story

A different person stated, “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 start cracking jokes about it and say sorry for being a bit extra.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another reader commented, “I’m pregnant, and I cried two days ago because I couldn’t find the new block of dill Havarti cheese I just bought in the fridge. It was on the counter already.”
