My wife is 32 weeks pregnant and is having to monitor her blood sugar daily. She wanted me to check mine, so I did....but shes mad at me because I changed the needle before checking my sugar. She is mad because I didnt use the same needle that she had just used and says that I shouldnt worry about her having any diseases and i should be comfortable using the same needle. I told her that wife or not, Im not using someone elses needle. She is pissed at me now, tell me im in the right?

You have sex with her? The needle is the least of your worries.

ETA: But I can see how someone squeamish might think it would be gross to not change the needle.

I chalk that one up to right my wife and I share a tooth brush but when we shoot up meth together I tell her bitch u better have your own meth and you own needle.

Just tell her you didn't want your reading thrown off by any residual blood from her.

Problem solved. Then keep mouth shut for a couple days.

Arguing with a pregnant woman is ten times as stupid as arguing with a woman or her period. Her hormones are so out of whack that reason is no longer in existence.

Your wife is worrying about the little stuff. Shouldn't be a big deal. Also why not use the same neddle?

Yes you have sex with her but, to me, using a used needle is like using used toilet paper or tissues. It has been soiled so use a new one. Call me a germaphobe if you want to but I would probably have done the same.

She's right. You guys should share used TP, cue tips, tooth brushes, and Kleenex too!

Just tell her you changed the needle because of good habits from work. You don't want to break this habit and make a life threatening mistake at work.

Do not do this. She will use it just out of spite. Then it will be more fuel for the fire.

Tell her you'd rather fuck the little blonde intern at work than contaminate yourself with her chubby pregnant lady blood.

You are wrong for two reasons

1 you are married so you are automatically wrong

2 your wife is pregnant so this reinforces number 1

Sorry I am in the same boat

The "force of habit" excuse can be a pretty effective way to end an argument.

32 week pregnant.. if you would have used the same needle it would have been wrong too.. It is just the way it is.. Kiss her on the forehead and say I love you babe.
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 8:25:20 AM EST
I wouldn't hesitate to use the same needle, she is my wife.. But hey, that's just me.

FIFY, marriage has nothing to do with female hormones, I mean intellect.

OP, you will never be right, but ask her to share the same silverware while you eat something she hates.
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 8:33:46 AM EST
Everyone is missing the most important fact in your question: "My wife is 32 weeks pregnant". Any man of the worl should instantly realize that she is not in her right mind. Best thing you can do is go get her some ice cream and pickles, and shut the hell up!
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 8:35:44 AM EST
See my sig line.

Of course you are wrong.




Link Posted: 3/16/2011 8:35:59 AM EST
New needle for sure... used needle would be gross, who cares where it came from. If she really has a problem with it, look up some super close up pictures of needles, and what they look like after having been used. Yep, gross. She'll never use a needle twice again.

Simple way to avoid the issue:

Check your blood first. Then you'll have to change the needle anyway because you don't want to harm the baby.

Ugh. One person to a tooth brush!

And I agree... using someone else's needle could throw your readings off. I didn't think of that one.
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 8:45:52 AM EST
Just tell her, If she hadn't been shooting heroin you could use the same needle.








JK She's 32 wk. pregnant there is no correct option. Best wishes for you new family.

You are male and therefore wrong. You know this, man.

You're afraid of sharing a needle with the mother of your children? Exactly what diseases do you think she might have that you haven't already acquired?

ETA - accuracy of reading is a valid reason for a fresh needle

While technically being in the right, you handled it abysmally. You should have:

A. Used her needle. BFD, you swap bodily fluids anyway.
B. Used the "Honey, it's just a habit from work, sorry" line.
C. Used it first, handed it to her.
D. Dropped it while trying to take it from her, then used a new one.
E. Use Harvsters idea, then pack your shit and move.


ETA: to highlight the most important part of your post.

There's a lot of petty shit to fight about, but for god's sake, if some chick was pissed because I wouldn't share a dirty needle with her, she's way out of line.
