AITA for taking the last slice of pie from my pregnant wife?

Okay, title sounds really bad. Here we go. My wife (29f) is in her third trimester, and she and I (28m) have been married for 4 years.

My sister is an amazing baker and has always sent delicious baked goods to family members. It used to be that wife and I would split the goodies pretty evenly, except for the lemon meringue pie, which my wife didn't like (but I loved) so I ate most of that.

However, since she's become pregnant, my wife has developed a sudden hankering for the lemon meringue. So much so that, well, she usually ends up eating all of it now. (I'm usually at work when my sister delivers the pie, so my wife, at home, will get to it first.) I asked if she wouldn't mind saving me just a single slice, because I liked it a lot too, and she agreed - but then ended up eating it all and said she hadn't been able to stop her cravings. This happened for a second time, then a third time. I know it's silly to get worked up over a slice of pie, and she's pregnant so of course her appetite is greater... but it was something I had been looking forward to and then my expectations kept getting dashed.

The fourth time, I again asked if I could have the last slice of pie. My wife said yes, as usual, and promised she meant it. This time, my shift ended early so I arrived in time to see my wife chowing down. There was just one slice left and she was eyeing it. When she saw me, she apologized and asked if she could have the last slice - that now that she had started eating it, she couldn't help but really, really need it.

On the other hand, I had been looking forward to the pie all day. I said no, we talked about this, and you already had the whole rest of the pie. I then took the slice and started eating.

My wife immediately burst into tears and ran out of the room, and she's been in there ever since and not talking to me. I now feel really shitty. I didn't think she would react this way, and the pie was not worth whatever distress I caused her. Instead of lemon meringue, I only taste regret.

So Reddit, AITA for eating that slice?

Edit: Wow, thanks for all the perspectives, a lot of this didn't occur to me. I'm still catching up on the comments so apologies if I don't get to some questions. As a quick update, my wife came out of the bedroom, and before I could say anything, she apologized. She said she had felt embarrassed about her eating habits for a while (she used to be an extremely healthy eater before the pregnancy), and when I took the last slice it j

I like to dip slices of cheese in mayo.

I know it's another food opinion but I've always got a lot of flak for this. I like to take slices of cheddar and dip them in mayo like you would dip chips in salsa or another dip. I do this while I'm making a sandwich mostly, but it's also a good snack just by itself. I like the taste of the mayonnaise against the sharpness of the cheddar. Plus mayo is just good by itself, but that's a whole other thing. It's especially good when you kinda scoop it onto the cheese and then use another slice to make a cheese mayo sandwich where the cheese is the bread.

15 years of production and only tonight have i found Simplers slice function!

Yes.....i am an idiot! Ive been producing for 15 years, the last 8 of which have been with Ableton. Ive never really dabbled with chopping up breaks that much as ive always enjoyed building my beats from scratch.
Anyway, tonight i watched one of my fave producers do a twitch production stream, and he threw a break in simpler, sliced it, manually realigned all the markers for best results, then right click, slice to drum rack and hey presto, individual drum hits from the break, ready to build up a natural sounding beat!

Honestly, im gobsmacked at both the simplicity of it, and my utter stupidity for never knowing about this feature!
