  • Mine gained weight AND he had morning sickness. Do you have any idea how irritating that is? Men are babies already and he was going around complaining that he felt like he was going to throw up! I had morning sickness bad so it really got on my nerves! One time he was craving chicken tacos and as soon as he ate one he threw up! lol

  • Mine didn't... When I was 6 wks he left for bootcamp and came back when I was 35 weeks so he missed the ENTIRE thing! Well, when I flew down to see him at graduate bootcamp he got to feel our dd kick before anyone else did! But he lost 65 lbs, no cravings... never got to even be around it! Boy is he going to be SHOCKED when we have our second!

  • My H finishes off everything I eat. lol So we'll see if he starts gaining weight. I never finish my food, hardly ever, and now that I'm pregnant, I can go through lots of foods that I think I might want, change my mind, then give them to him lol.
