The Original Poster’s (OP) spouse, a 28-year-old woman, is six weeks pregnant with their second child. The couple had their first child three years ago, and they could conceive after only one month of trying without complications.

The second pregnancy has also been without issues related to conceiving, as she became pregnant in less than two months after they stopped using protection.

OP reminded her that it is natural to have a miscarriage before the 12th week of pregnancy and that they did not have any issues with conceiving. He also stated that if they were unlucky this time, they could try again. However, his wife was not pleased with his reaction and ended the call abruptly.

OP apologized to her wife and acknowledged that it was challenging to go through a potential miscarriage. However, OP’s wife refused to accept his attempts at comfort and claimed that OP did not care.

OP reassured his wife that he cared about the situation but was also experiencing stress due to the upcoming bar exam. OP reminded his wife that miscarriages could be natural, and he does not anticipate having trouble conceiving in the future.
