At 26 years old, she is married to a 30-year-old man, B. The couple are eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child together.
B is known for his lack of a filter, often saying things without thinking about the potential impact on others.
This can be quite frustrating for the Original Poster (OP), who is a more cautious and thoughtful communicator.
Considered Professional Help
B has considered that he might have an issue with understanding social cues but has not pursued any professional help to address it.
A 4D Ultrasound Scan
Recently, OP went to a prenatal appointment where she had a 4D ultrasound performed.
This was her first experience with this technology, and she was very excited to see her unborn baby’s face.
An Emotional Moment
The ultrasound images may have looked like a “crisp lasagna” to the untrained eye, but OP was delighted to see her baby’s facial features for the first time.
Sharing the Scan Photo
Upon returning home, OP eagerly awaited B’s arrival to share the ultrasound photos and videos with him.
When he got home, she sat him down and showed him the clearest image from the ultrasound.
OP pointed out the baby’s eyes, nose, and mouth to B, whose immediate response was to call the baby ugly.
Insulted and Hurt
This comment greatly upset OP, causing her to lock her phone and refuse to show B any more images.
She questioned why she should share the rest of the photos if B would simply insult their baby.
B was surprised by OP’s reaction and argued that his comment should be considered fair game since she sometimes calls the baby names when she’s in pain.
OP, however, insisted that the situations were different. B continued to defend his right to call the baby ugly and even expressed hope that the baby would not look the same upon birth.
Can’t Stand the Sight of Him
OP refused to show B any more photos and asked him to leave the room.
Despite this, he remained upset that she would not share the rest of the images and failed to understand why she was so distraught.
OP wondered if her reaction was a result of pregnancy hormones and questioned whether she was overreacting or if B was just being thoughtless.
Did She Overreact?
Reddit users quickly weighed in with their opinions. Many of them agreed B was the one in the wrong for calling the baby ugly. They didn’t understand why he thought that was something okay to say.
One user wrote, “OP, maybe start thinking about his good qualities? Are there any? Because it really doesn’t sound like it. It sounds like he’s a bully who uses “I don’t have a filter” as an excuse.”
What do you think? What would you have done in this situation? Do you know someone with no filter? Comment!
