I have heard of this but I wanted to know if there is any actually proof that there is such a thing as sympathy weight gain, heartburn, pains, cravings and all the other wonderful things us beautiful ladies feel during pregnancy?



My boyfriend is craving Whoppers... lol.

It is very true. My husband has had heartburn the entire time I have been pregnant. Plus he was getting sick every morning for like 3 weeks and we were talking and remembered someone saying something about it. So I tested and I was 6 weeks, I havent had any of the pregnant stuff like being sick or weight gain.lol

This is craziness! Too funny. I know this sounds awful but I'm almost glad he can feel some of the uncomfortable feelings I do. Haha, now I don't look nuts complaining and crying over spilling the milk... literally... total mental breakdown.. i missed the bottle.

Haha, mine has decided to bet me 100 bucks he wont gain weight. I'll take that bet... he craves Whoppers.... Whoppers... come on now!!! BK is the most unhealthy fast food chain, he'll gain weight and I'll gladly accept that 100.

I already have two little boys but this is my fiance's first. He's eight time zones away yet his symptoms are building up like he's truly pregnant. He's gained weight, has to run to the bathroom before he has an accident, he randomly feels sick and he craves the same things as me without even knowing that i'm craving them. It's quite amusing

Before I got pregnant my husband was unable to gain any weight. He is a smaller guy. Now that I am almost 8 months preggo boom he's gained 16 pounds already.
