I am currently 7w4d preggo, but my husband has more symptoms than I do 🙂 A couple of days ago he threw up first thing in the morning. He has been fighting headaches every night, and has even gained some weight in the mid-region. He has food aversions and cravings as well as bouts of fatigue.
So now I wonder: Have any other bee’s had a “pregnant” husband? Is there anything I can do to help him feel better?

That hasn’t happened to my SO. I think if my SO was that sick I would tell him to get a physical at the Drs to make sure everything is alright.

DH definitely gained weight…more weight than I did in the beginning. It was kind of cute to see him craving certain things with me.
However, if your DH is sick, which it sounds like he is, I’d recommend getting him to a doctor. At least you know he’s not pregnant 😛

My husband gained more weight than I did when I was pregnant with my son, lol!

With my daughter, DH had no “symptoms,” but this time around, I made fun of him HARD. He was nauseaus, smells bothered him, and he had cravings early on. It was hilarious…and my DH is one of the most level-headed, no-nonsense people I know.
It has subsided now though…but man did I tease him!

It’s called Couvade Syndrome or sympathetic pregnancy. I wasn’t sure it was real, though!

springbride23: Thank you SO MUCH!!! This is EXACTLY what is happening with him!!
urchin: Sounds exactly like what my DH is going through right now. And tonight after I get home from work I get to make him rice krispies treats because he had a craving for them. He even stopped by the store just to pick up the ingredients on his way home (which he rarely ever does) so it really must have been one HECK of a craving, LOL!

I would have him check his blood pressure just in case…

GonnaBeMrsB: I read that men who have strong symptoms like that are more attentive and doting fathers once the baby arrives! So you’re in luck 🙂
I read that in a super interesting book called “Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies? The Surprising Science of Pregnancy” by Jena Pincott. Check it out, it’s a great book!
