Cravings

By Anonymous - This FML is from back in 2011 but it's good stuff - United States

Today, on my way home from work, I decided to bring my pregnant wife a bouquet of roses to surprise her. Her response? "Why didn't you get me something useful, like chicken wings, instead?" FML

She is pregnant so it makes sense that she would be moody and have cravings...

just bite your tounge bro she's prego and grouchy so your best bet is to get her some damn chicken or sleep on the couch!

Wow that does suck....

not a lot of girls like flower but due to pregnacy she might not have meant it she could have been a little grouchy

girl's got her priorities straight.

1 thanks for the stunning report captain obvious... I have to agree with 13 tho

you sure found someone nice to marry into for the rest of your life :)

don't take it personally. like 13, she liable to be grouchy due to pregnancy..hormones are raging...and she is eating for two... but atleast you know what to get for next time!

Actually, next time, get both.

well she has a point, gotta make sure the baby is healthy

OP's wife is beast.

 I'm 13 and know that's hormones ((or she just doesn't like you) but get her Pizza Hut parmesan chicken, it's amazing!

chicken wings > flowers

that's a pregnant bitch for ya

That's a turn off.

a lot of girls don't like flowers?? ummmm I like flowers.

OR! get her a bouquet of chicken wings (:

217- I love your logic!

Now only if you could grow chicken wings?

179 - that doesn't mean everyone else does. They had a point. You acting like a jackass doesn't change that.

finger licking good!

She is pregnant so it makes sense that she would be moody and have cravings...

looks like *puts on sunglasses* she wanted something to suck on!

Oh goodness don't bring that back.

Oh wow, you just earned "worst pun award" 59.

That whole sunglasses thing is so lame! Also, I really hope you are joking in the about me section if your profile.

I would have told her to eat the roses, it's just like a salad but smells better...

59's profile is awfully racist

110 have you ever been pregnant? no, didn't think so. stfu

You are cool man, real cool! :D

154 you havent either so stfu!

Definitely! Spoken like a true prego!

just for the record, not all pregnant women act the same and have mood swings. Each woman is different, so I suggest you not to think all women will act the same as your fiancé.

Cravings are common in pregnant women all theyy want is food she is eating for two after all and she cant eat flowers (well i mean she could but thats only if all the food on Earth disappeared suddenly)

you married her. You should know if she likes sentimental gifts or not.

it's just hormones. don't sweat it, OP. just go out and buy her some chicken.

I think I missed what you typed, there were too many other comments can you please repeat it.

Aww, what a mean prego!

that's not mean, that's hormones. I used to make my kids dad go to del taco at 3 am just for hot sauce. (funny, he would)

Your kids dad? Is that a new term, so cool xoxo and so hot, for husband? If not than try "nuclear" or "suicidal" sauce on your wings next time you're pregnant.

no 85, hes my EX husband, and prefer to call him my kids dad. see what happens when you assume? fucking moron.

Why would you say "funny, he would"? I think it's common for a guy, now a day to go out of his way to please the lady carrying his child. It seemed as if he really cared about making you happy during those days/months.(:

I say funny because it was just the hot sauce I wanted. no tacos. :)

you sir obviously don't realize girls get moody when pregnant

Yes, it's "funny" he did exactly what you told him to, you stuck up bitch.

aww 201 I didn't know by me making light of my own experience made me a stuck up bitch! go fuck yourself.

No, you're a stuck up bitch for sending him on a task you obviously found ridiculous, then saying it's funny, as if you expected him not to do so.

273- when you're pregnant, you really don't give a fuck..

273, it may have been ridiculous, now that she looks back on it. At the time, she just wanted the damn hot sauce. I'm pretty sure she wasn't thinking "hmm, I'm just gonna think up some stupid, ridiculous task for my kids father, just to see if he will do it so I can ridicule him on fml." Stop being a douche, & actually THINK about things.

She'd hormonal dipshit!!!!!!

I'm almost 34 weeks with our first son :) he loves milk so we end up going through five litres of milk on a good week :P when I was 9 and 10 weeks I got milk cravings so bad that whenever I wasn't skulling it down, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I found out after that that's when they form their bones :) needless to say, my little baby is strong! :P

Eh, sorry you're getting so many mean replies on that comment. It's not like you really meant anything by it. I think its hilarious when people blow up over things like this. I mean, to all the people that replied: why? there is no reason to beat up on him for such a light-hearted remark. I don't think he was actually calling her vicious or evil. Seriously. You people act as if he's being majorly vindictive.

should have got her the super spicy ones!!

don't take it personally, She's pregnant, so she has mood swings and cravings. Don't worry about it.

if she is pregnant your first though should hace been food everyone knows that

Agree, pregnant women automatically get a "get outta jail free pass". No matter what their right and everyone else is wrong. Kinda a commonly know thing. lol

Pickles and ice cream :)

pickles and icecream? really?

Shoulda brought Epic Meal Time

Yes 65, really. When my mother was pregnant with my twin sisters she would be eat peanut butter cups dipped in ketchup. :|

I craved jujubes, green olives (unpitted), and Nova with cream cheese, when I was pregnant. And I would cry at a drop of a hat! I really couldn't help my mood swings.

My gf is just now pregnant (found out last week) and you girls are scaring the shit out of me lmao

Of course, if OP had brought food in the first place, she would have said something like, "What, I'm so fat that you think I just want to eat all the time?!"

88 if you think pregnancy hormones are bad, wait until she has the baby and is sleep deprived. Be very afraid! I'm kidding, Congrats! You are going to be shocked with how in love you are going to be with your baby.

sorry my cousins are pregnant 3 of them :) one is always having Labor Pains Going to the hospital . and my other dousing is always sleep an my third is Vomiting

Can't some foods/smells make pregnant women sick? Given that, I would say food is a dangerous bet unless it's specifically requested.

as long as you care for her and get her what she asked you'll be fine lol and not all women get like that it just depends on the girl my step mom was pretty calm when she was pregnant and didn't crave anything weird lol

I had a bunch of weird cravings like pickles n ice cream, peanut butter n watermelon, ranch an watermelon, chips an ice cream, chocolate n chicken, chocolate an ranch, and one of my weirdest was cheesecake an ranch...idk what I was thinking when I was pregnant xp

lol sourgirl my first pregnancy I craved beer and sushi. I hate beer haha second pregnancy I craved random things...pickles were one but I've Always liked pickles *insert pickle jokes here* this time im craving different salads pasta salad, a good macaroni salad, mixed green/spinach salad ice berg lettuce with ranch dressing. lol

DesB...those are some nasty cravings haha the weirdest thing I craved was probably pickles dipped in ranch dressing or a pickle/ranch dressing sandwich oh ya raw beef. every time I cook hamburgers or steaks I wanna eat it raw. o___o

I ate steak and Swedish Fish when I was pregnant. Ooh, and shrimp.

SteelCladAngel, I hope you're kidding why the hell would you drink alcohol during your pregnancy?!? That's so bad!

I think she just craved it, but probably never consumed it. Or that's how I interpreted it.

I said I craved it you jackass I didnt say I drank it.

besides most docs will say a glass of wine or a can/8-12 oz glass or bottle of beer is ok //occasionally// during pregnancy unless you are a high risk pregnancy.

my mom told me she craved ne'er when she was pregnant with me, and one day couldn't handle it so she drank one .-.

I guess that's why you cut your wrists.

LMFAO at what 31 said!!!

If they only had a restaurant or a line of frozen food I would be so fat.

Haha that blows man! My sympathies!

Show it anyway

hahaha, listen to your woman OP.

just bite your tounge bro she's prego and grouchy so your best bet is to get her some damn chicken or sleep on the couch!

That's hilarious, way true!

On another note OP don't take it personal, it was a nice gesture

yes, you knocked her up, so anything sweet you do for the following 9 months are "to be expected" and thus "null and void". However all screwups or even slightly non-psychic moments you have count tripple.

Bite your tounge... Townje...
