Oh, the lengths people will go to hide infidelity.
A doctor has recalled how one patient asked to be induced into labour five weeks early, in an effort to make her husband believe the baby was his.
The woman’s husband worked in the army and had been deployed for her entire pregnancy.
According to the doctor’s account, which was posted onto the forum Quora, the poor man was already a bit suspicious.
“He had done the maths and, based on the last time they had had sex, she was already overdue,” doctor Lacy Windham of Tennessee wrote in response to the question: ‘What is the most unreasonable request you have received from a patient?’.
“He couldn’t understand why we were letting her pregnancy go so long. But he was not the father of the baby. And she was trying to keep this a secret.”
