Hopefully he at least took you to a nice dinner? But maybe he's trying to save up money, babies ain't cheap!
Plenty of things you can do without spending money. I baked my husband cookies the night before, he made heart-shaped pancakes the next morning and then we went for a walk in the park we were married in, and went skating after. So many things he could have done, but her post makes it sound like he didn't do anything.
It's ok, OP. You can now point at the stomach in response to several things. "Why didn't you go to the supermarket?" "Didn't you say you were going to do the dishes this time?" "What am I getting for my birthday?" The list goes on and on.
You guys should've talked about it beforehand, if this is your first Valentine's day together. Some people simply don't celebrate it and have good reason not to. He could've been nicer in the way he told you he didn't get you anything though.
I didn't know you could spend that much on a cooler. You should take it back and get something to prepare for the baby.
And that's when you point to the door. Babies are not gifts, they are a responsibility, and he can't just write the baby off as a way to get out of being a nice person to you.
Clearly you don't get how hard conception really is for some people. Planned or not a child is the greatest "gift" anyone could ever get in life. In the same sense children are not for everyone and if you don't feel a child is everything to you then give the child up for adoption. Because in the eyes of a family that can't conceive adoption is the gift they've been hoping for.
300 gift for Valentines day? Who is the crazy one here? Or you happen to be a billionaire?
