The first thing I did was open my MLB At Bat app to confirm the last thing that I ever wanted to see- my due date falling right in the middle of a road trip. Earlier last year, a handful of athlete’s and their wives caught a whole lot of criticism for having babies during their husband’s respective sports season causing said athletes to miss games for paternity leave.
Some sports talk personalities even went so far as to say that the athlete’s should not have missed games for the births of their children referencing reasons like it being the second child, playoffs, etc.
It’s quite interesting when you take a deeper look into dating pro athletes, especially basketball players.
When it comes to dating we are all looking for that special person who we feel completes us.
While there are always scenarios where “things could be worse” (or more complicated), this is our story.
Countless people criticized my decision for a planned c-section but I knew that this was the only reasonable scenario given the circumstances and nobody had to experience it but me.
Plus, with a ten-day road trip right around the corner, I was worried that he wouldn’t have enough bonding time.
I was worried that I would feel like a nightmare post surgery. It’s accurate to say that there is not much I wasn’t worried about at that point.
In today’s society many athletes are seen as Heroic figures even get treated like they are Gods walking on earth. But at the same time, they have worked their whole lives to attain a goal and they have reached it.
Now they have all the money and fame they could ever wish for.
