Hi, I'm very sorry, long post ahead.. please just skip it if you don't have a few minutes to spare.
Bad omens is a signs/events/things happening that symbolize something bad is about to come in the future.
Do you believe in bad omens? If you don't mind, can you share your story and/or experience of one?
Like an event/sign that is happening that telling something bad is about
to come. Like a sign telling you ahead that in the future something
bad might/going to happen.
In my Chinese culture, we tends to be superstitious, believe in omen
stuff.. We believe in bad omen, where signs or things that happening is
trying to tell us that something bad in the future will come.
Have you see bad omen happened to someone? If it okay, can you share
your personal story? Or a story that you saw it happened to a friend or
someone you know?
Really appreciated your help share your story. Thank you
Maybe I'm just over-worrying, over-thinking, and over-analyzing.. But I
can't seem to shake off the feeling that it bad omen trying to tell me
My husband is a Tanker truck driver, he hauls gasoline and fuel liquids.
He work long hours; come home at night, and leave to work early in the
morning before sunrise.
Driving tanker trucks could be stressful, because there more danger/risk
and responsibility. The job need alot of mental stability, and balance
driving skills especially when there sloshing liquid movement.
I worried about his safety when he on the road, especially knowing his truck hauls flammable/explosive liquid.
He have a perfectly clean driving records, and he is a very balance and
smooth driver.. But I still worried like when there heavy raining days,
slippery roads. When there tight deadlines delivered fuel on time and
traffic ahead, it can be mentally stressful. Hauling sloshing liquid is
harder when stopping, turning around curves, and easier to roll over
If I have a choice, I don't want to see my husband on the road hauling
10,000 gallons of highly flammable gasoline/fuel, delivered 5-6 loads
per day.. But he gotta do what he gotta do for survival. And his a wife,
I just have to be supportive of his job choice, and try not give him
any stress. I want him to have full concentration while he at work, and
not have to worry about things at home.
I know he wants a baby to complete our little family, so I promise him that I will get off my BCP and we TTC next year.
I'm even not pregnant yet, and sometimes he kiss my stomach. He said
when I'm pregnant, he wants to kiss my stomach Everyday for 9 Months
until the baby born.
Still in stomach not even born yet and already have daddy kisses everyday, I can tell that he will spoil the baby rotten.. But I myself know I prefer to be the the strict and critical mom.
Anyways, here come the part that I worried about bad omen is trying to tell
me that something bad might happen to him in the future; like an
accident on the freeway, died and forever leave.
He said when I'm pregnant; he wants me to sit down with him when my
stomach get Big so he can camcorder videotape us--he wants to kiss my
stomach, say Hi and talk to the unborn baby. He want to say 'Daddy loves
you' to the baby.
You know like he wants to videotape him kiss my Big stomach, and he says
some words to the Unborn baby. So when the baby old enough can watch it
and see him, like daddy welcome the unborn baby.. It seem like he
thought about this for a long time, and it something he really really
want to do.
But I'm kindda scare because it might be a bad omen. He drive a tanker
truck, hauling 10,000 gallons of highly flammable gasoline/fuel, delivered at least 5-6 loads
per day. And there
accidents happened on the freeway everyday; the possibility is out
there, his job nature is more worrisome too.. I feel that he film
himself ahead of time; so if anything unfortunate happen to him, the
baby can see him on the video.
I understand about maternity photoshoot, and it normal to videotape baby birth, keyword 'baby birth' when the baby born.
BUT why want to videotape himself kiss my stomach and talk to an
'Unborn' baby? I mean my husband is alive and healthy, why want to
videotape himself say things to an unborn baby that is still in the stomach, not
even born yet? You know what I mean? Is he like 'leaving his last words' ahead of time to me and the baby?
It worrisome and I feel like it bad omen telling me ahead that he might
died, maybe that why it lead him to have the strong desire to do
this--so when the baby old enough can watch their daddy on video;
eventhough he forever no longer physically here with us anymore.
Is this like bad omen telling me something? Or I'm over-analyze and
over-thinking this? I'm kindda scare; maybe it just my Chinese culture,
believe in superstitious and bad omen stuff.
Maybe he simply just prefer 'videotaping' as a way to preserve that
memory/time when the unborn baby still in stomach? Seem like he been thinking about this for a long time, it
something he want/must do. But I'm not sure if it a good idea..
ugh.. is my husband kindda not very normal?
If you were me, would you let your DH do something like this?
