My husband acts pregnant

I’m 6 weeks along and so far my husband seems to be more pregnant than I am. He’s throwing up, exhausted often, and is more scared than I am. So far, knock on wood, I’ve only noticed heavier boobs and peeing more often. Maybe it hasn’t kicked in yet but I’m feeling like my husband is stealing my pregnancy sympathy.

  • Don’t worry, there’s plenty of pregnancy symptoms and sympathy to go around.

  • This is a real condition called Couvade!! The partner experiences similar symptoms...almost as a subconscious sympathy. Isn't it crazy? I have just read about it in a couple of pregnancy books
