She Stayed up All Night With Their Baby, Then Slept Late to Make Up for It, so When Her Husband Called Her Lazy, She Went Ballistic

A woman recently asked for some advice because her husband thought she was lazy when she was actually sick. Here’s what happened.

They’d been together awhile

A 32-year-old woman had been with her 30-year-old husband for nine years and married for four. She thought they knew each other well.

One issue in their marriage was that it took her a long time to get pregnant, but when she finally did, it felt like they had everything they needed.

But there were complications. The woman said, “We had a beautiful baby girl who was born at 30 weeks because I had HELLP syndrome. My baby and I nearly died.”

The baby had to stay in the NICU for two months because she had a very low birth weight.

During those two months, the woman became depressed and anxious because she wasn’t allowed to visit her baby as much as she wanted due to COVID restrictions.

She put on weight

She couldn’t do a lot of exercise because of hormone injections, so she put on a lot of weight, which made her feel worse.

She was finally discharged

Once the baby’s weight reached 1.8 kg, she was allowed home.

Once the baby was home, the woman still found things hard. She said, “Every day, I’ll wake up somewhere between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. My husband uses this as ammo when he’s frustrated about something.”

He said he did all the work

The woman’s husband was mad that he did all the work; he was the one who got up early to feed and change the baby and then went to work, while the woman stayed asleep until late morning or early afternoon. He branded her “lazy.”

The woman bit back. She told her husband that she hated how he only looked at things from his point of view.

She did just as much work

The woman said that because their baby doesn’t sleep very much, she has to stay up with her, and sometimes she doesn’t get to sleep until 4:00 a.m., meaning she then stays asleep until later in the day.

There was other work as well

She said, “I’m the one running after her every day from 12:00 p.m. till 6:00 p.m. Then again, from 10:00 p.m. till 4:00 a.m. All while I’m doing laundry, cleaning, washing dishes, and entertaining a very active 18-month-old.”

She told him she was thoughtful

The woman made sure her husband knew that she let him sleep for at least eight unbroken hours every night while she got around five hours’ broken sleep at best.

He told her to exercise

The woman’s husband retorted that she should exercise more, as it would help her lose weight and help her sleep better.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to sleep so late every day, or did she have a good reason to?

The internet responded

One person said, “You’re not sleeping late; you’re just sleeping at a different time.”

Another person commented, “If you’re up all night with the baby, then it makes sense that you sleep late.”
