  • I think they happen at the same time. At least it happened that way with my husband. Around 2pm everyday I had to take a nap. I would be physically exhausted and my husband would be too! He also craved really weird things that I KNOW he normally wouldn't eat. He even had "labor pains" when I was in labor. It was nice having someone so in tune with me...

  • My boyfriend will never admit that he has my symptoms, but i have noticed a change big time. He has gained the weight along side of me ( ofcourse i gained more...blah!) he has had the naseau often when i did.....he even is tired at the same time of day as I am. The other night was too funny, I woke up to use the bathroom and he did at the same time.....weird. Sometimes he even knows when I am having contractions before I even tell him!

  • When I was pregnant with our first child, anytime I felt sick, my husband would actually get sick and throw up and then I would feel better. This happened for about 2 weeks.
