It's all going down!
Amber has had nothing but good things to say about her baby daddy Andrew since the day she revealed him as her new boo. For many couples, this “honeymoon” period where they never see each other’s flaws can last months or even years, but throwing a pregnancy into the mix will make things get very real, very fast. Even before the baby comes, there are a huge amount of major decisions that must be made during the pregnancy. Add all of the pregnancy hormones into that, and it’s bound to lead to some pretty ugly fights.
It seems Amber and Andrew have already reached that point, and things are getting even uglier than fans expected. Could their relationship be on the rocks before the baby even gets here?
Over the years, Amber has become increasingly aware of her own mental illnesses and what they mean for her. She was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder years ago, and has since been vocal about how the conditions can lead to her erratic and often combative behavior. Add in the fact that Amber has recently stopped taking her psychiatric medications thanks to the bundle of joy she’s expecting, and all of the stress and hormones that come with pregnancy, and the potential for drama skyrockets. Could this cocktail of emotion be coming between her relationship with Andrew?
All women have different outlooks about knowing the gender of their baby while they’re pregnant. While cast members like Jenelle found out the gender and announced as soon as they could, others like Kailyn decided not to know until they were in the delivery room. It seems that Andrew and Amber have two very different outlooks on this.
“I’m thirteen weeks pregnant,” Amber tells a producer in a sneak peek clip of next week’s episode of Teen Mom OG. “I think I’m far along enough to where I could find out what [gender] the baby is on Monday.”
“Yeah,” Andrew says, but adds, “Do you want to find out?”
Amber seems taken aback immediately. “Well, of course I do,” she says, looking offended.
“Do you want to wait just a little bit longer?” Andrew asks. “You just want the mystery gone?”
“Why do I need a mystery on a baby?!” Amber demands. When Andrew suggests painting the nursery a neutral color like “taupe or something,” Amber rolls her eyes. “No, baby, listen,” she says. “I want to know what the baby is so I can get prepared. If it’s a boy, I’ve never had a boy.” Then she exclaims, “I’m getting annoyed right now, I’m getting stressed out!”
Amber insists that it’s necessary to know what the baby is to prepare. “Just get gender neutral stuff,” Andrew suggests, but Amber snaps at him.
“Stop!” she says. “I’m done! I’m done!” When Andrew goes on about the color, she curses and adds, “What is happening?! What is the big deal? … I’m getting p*ssed off! It’s the weirdest argument, it’s the weirdest thing!”
Andrew again insists, “It’s called gender neutral,” but Amber yells, “Baby, I don’t give a s**t about your hippie bulls**t right now! I’m done!”
Yikes. That was not a comfortable argument to watch.
