You're Pregnant Too???

So.....my husband is under the false impression that he is expecting too (I mean, independently carrying a baby). My husband has been between 150-165 since I start dating him twelve years ago. He eats what he wants and it's never good (all junk, sparse veggies and fruits).

This pregnancy has me expanding quick! I am eating everything I can get my hands on. So my husband is mimicking me, it seems. But it does not show on him; I am getting the big belly, the stretch marks, etc!!!!


Lately, I have been giving him the side eye when he starts talking about his imaginary expanding uterus and belly, imaginary stretch marks, and being hungry all the time.

Did your SO mimic your pregnancy symptoms????

My dh had a sympathy pregnancy my mom called it. When I got sick so did he. When I craved something so did he. When I was in labor I was feeling nauseous and they had to give him something so he wouldn't puke. He would call me at work and ask how I was feelin because his back hurt and he didnt feel good. I'd say you're pregnant too?! Funny how that happens

Sympathy pregnancy....that is a clever thing to call it. But it is definitely all in their heads!

My husband had morning sickness for about a week when I was pregnant with our oldest. I never had it.

Lol your husband has the same body type as my husband... Except my husband is about 135. He claimed he was gaining weight while I was pregnant... I didn't see much change in him though lol.

My husbands gained 20lbs on my third pregnancy so far! He eats so much crap. Like seriously he will eat 4 helpings! Hes still like fit though. Hes not like super muscular like ur dh, hes always been thin but he has muscle, just doesnt show..so his plan is to gain 20 more lbs and then turn it into muscle. ....my response..goood for you bucko o.O ...i have 6 weeks left and I doubt ill ever be able to turn anything into muscle.

My DH has definitely been sick and craving more junk than me this pregnancy. I tell him it's a good thing the guys don't actually have to be pregnant cuz he'd never survive. And balanced diet!? Not a chance he'd do that!
