It’s my birthday today ♥️🎉

My partner has kindly bought me a card from him and from his two boys (my step sons) which was lovely and appreciated.

I haven’t got a card from my unborn child - am I just being a birthday drama queen or is my disappointment justified? I have asked him he said the supermarket didn’t have any cards from ‘bump’ but if that was me purchasing the card I’d of just got a happy birthday mummy card. I’m in the latter stages of pregnancy for context.

Aibu to go and buy one myself?

Yes you are being a drama queen
Happy Birthday.

Whaaaaaat! Cray cray. You expected a birthday card....from a foetus?

Hope you have a great birthday but you’re being ridiculous.

He’s not really a fetus he’s 6 weeks away from being born

You're being quite ridiculous. Why on earth would you need a card from your unborn baby? I didn't realise they were capable of such things.

Thanks for the birthday wishes ♥️

Yeah sorry you’re being weird. Happy birthday

Heartburn888 Fri 18-Oct-19 07:59:22

I wouldn’t say weird. 🙄

gwackywacky Fri 18-Oct-19 08:00:07

This is really off topic but... Surely a foetus is a foetus until it is born and then is a baby?

Heartburn888 Fri 18-Oct-19 08:01:49

Well maybe so in technical terms but to me he’s a baby 🤷🏼‍♀️ 😂

Beldon Fri 18-Oct-19 08:01:52

Totally ridiculous. I was 8 mths pregnant on my birthday and this wouldn’t have occurred to me. You have a lifetime of birthday wishes coming from your child stating next year.

crustycrab Fri 18-Oct-19 08:03:21

Happy birthday. But yes, you're being really weird expecting a card from a foetus.

WHSmith have really sucked you in haven't they? grin

You are being weird and very silly. I didn't get cards from my dc until they were old enough to make or purchase them themselves, my DH just doesn't think like that. Appreciate what you got and take the opportunity of being one year older to grow up a bit.

If you wanted one from your bump then you should have told your OH this. I had to remind my DH in advance that our baby "might want to wish mummy a happy birthday too"

Really U! Sorry OP but a card from an unborn baby is ridiculous
