Men can experience symptoms of pregnancy!

It's called Couvade Syndrome, or Sympathetic Pregnancy Syndrome, and symptoms can mimic those suffered by the pregnant woman!

This usually happens during the partner's third month and as the mother's problems advance, the father's can too, including weight gain, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and even morning sickness!

Fathers who experience Couvade are advised to become more involved in the spouse's pregnancy and to do anything that can alleviate anxiety.

Men who suffer are usually found in societies that accept Couvade Syndrome, and it's incidence is highest among couples with a history of infertility.
