Today, I gave my boyfriend a $300 cooler for Valentine's Day. When I asked what he got me, he pointed at my stomach. I'm 3 months pregnant with his baby. FML

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.

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.

Hopefully he at least took you to a nice dinner? But maybe he's trying to save up money, babies ain't cheap!

Then maybe he should have said that also she spent $300 on a cooler if he wanted to save up he should have asked for nothing on Valentine's "because we need to Save for Valentine's Day" he's being selfish

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.

How do you know he even asked for anything? That could be all her, it's not his fault she spent a ton on a gift he potentially didn't even ask for.

YDI i guess

this is perfect

I recently gave birth to our first child, two months ago. When I asked him what I was getting for my birthday in three days, my husband pointed at our daughter and replied, "you already got it."

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.

On their first valentine's day together she's already pregnant? I hope not...

Well, if they met on the 16th of February last year, technically they've been together for a year. I've seen people get married quicker.

Quite early to bring a child into the world though. Surely you can't commit to a minimum of 18 years' worth of joint responsibility after dating for one year? At least I think that's quite irresponsible.

#5 I got married to attempted to have a child with my present wife, even when she was still my fiance. We just made it to our one year mark together. It is a personal decision. And part of that decision is me being military

#5 notice OP said boyfriend. Btw it only takes one night to make a baby.

I was responding to #4. I don't see the point you're trying to make?

Use it to not have sex any more then. when he asks why you can say "I'm already pregnant".

Ah this is brilliant. Try this one OP!

Guess you have never heard of a Yeti

Yeti? That's the thing Reinhold Messner hallucinated on his way up the Himalaya without oxygen, right?

The...the cooler was 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.

#24 It may be a 'gift' for the couple, but it's not a gift from the man to the woman, as OP's boyfriend is implying.

Aw, he got you a gift that you made yourself! That's so thoughtful. Wait…

300 gift for Valentines day? Who is the crazy one here? Or you happen to be a billionaire?

I thought it was excessive, too. But I also specifically ask my husband for gifts that do not cost money.

If it's something they'll use then investing the 300 bucks is smart instead of getting cheaper models that break every month.

You spent big dollars on him AND you put up with him? Girlfriend of the year!
