bestbuddies:  I’d be annoyed too, especially since he is eating them in the house with you.

Wait, so he put you on a diet and then eats foods that you’re “not allowed to eat” in front of you?

And you’re just “annoyed”?

What? Why are you letting your husband dictate what you eat? How can he tell you that you “can’t” eat something? If you want a piece of pizza, eat it. What exactly does he plan to do about it?

When did you give up control of your own body?

So if you’re at work, and you want a cup of coffee or a sode (both are fine in moderation, I am six months pregnant and I have caffeine almost every day, my doctor said it was FINE) do you not have it because your husband said you couldn’t? Sorry, this is weird. It’s one thing for your husband to be concerned that you are gettinge nough nutrients, sleep, etc, but it’s quite another to tell you what you can and can’t eat.

bestbuddies:  If DH did this, pregnant or not, we would have major issues. 


Assuming you don’t have celiac, what’s wrong with pizza or cookies?  I would ask him what his deal is and lay out that you expect him to be supportive,  not a giant ass.

bestbuddies:  Umm, NO! You should eat whatever it is that you want, RIGHT in front of him. Even if my husband told me I couldn’t have something, I’d eat it anyway. He doesn’t control me or what I put in my body. Especially while pregnant. If you want a slice a pizza, by all means HAVE IT! He’s not the one creating life all day.

Ummmmm he either needs to be a true partner and make the eating changes with you oeat off of you. His choice. You are the one who is pregnant and who knows what her body needs. ridiculous.

bestbuddies:  If you have to change your diet for the sake of the baby then he should committ to changing his diet to support you! You’re both having a baby here, you shouldn’t have to eat spinach and chicken breast while he has a pizza and wings. Talk about unfair!

bestbuddies:  Honestly,  if he is so concerned about your health,  he should be concerned about his & change his diet accordingly.

bestbuddies:  DH would lose a limb if he ate pizza in front of me and told me I shouldn’t eat it. Seriously, if he wanted me to eat “healthier” (and pizza isnn’t inherently unhealthy), he needs to support me and be a good example. 

Here is some good information you can show him…

<h4>How to prevent miscarriage:</h4>

  • consume chocolate (causes a 17% lower risk of miscarriage) more…
  • consume dairy products daily (leads to a 33% lower risk of miscarriage) more…
  • consume cheese (causes a 50% reduced risk) more…
