Read an interesting article last night via Babble and had to show it to my husband:
Couvade syndrome, otherwise known as a man’s “sympathetic pregnancy,” mirrors the common symptoms of a mom’s gestation: nausea, food cravings, back aches, weight gain, and sleep problems. The condition, the name of which derives from the French verb couver, or “to hatch,” was first mentioned by anthropologists who noted that in many cultures around the world, expecting dads go through certain rituals, mental states, and behaviors that copy those of their pregnant wives.
My husband, I swear, has been exhibiting symptoms. He gets cravings like I do. The other night we were having Pho and I mentioned to him how since pregnancy eating Pho makes me nauseous. I thought it was just because of first tri but I’m now in my second tri. Not 5 minutes later he said he was feeling neaseous and had to stop eating his Pho! hahaa. Poor guy.
How about you? Has your husband exhibit any “pregnancy symptoms”?
