Sympathy Symptoms?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

How many of your DP's have sympathy symptoms? My DH is pretty sensitive and has a few...last time he mostly he just ate a lot, and we gained weight nearly pound for pound, lol! I have heard it can be more severe for fathers when you are pregnant with a boy....this time DH has had a few crazy eating episodes, but nothing crazy yet. 


How about you guys?

I don't know if DH has actually been experiencing sympathy symptoms or not, but the last few days he keeps complaining of being exhausted and he doesn't know why.


I must be honest here and say.... It's kind of annoying, lol! Here I am, nauseated, at home all day with our 3yo and trying to do my work (customer service rep for cloth diaper company), and I'm exhausted!! Yes, he does work hard, too, but I feel like I need to be pampered right now. ROTFLMAO.gif

My DH is exhausted, but not out of sympathy - it's because he's doing everything. My morning sickness hit me in an extreme way this week - for a few days, I was in bed or in the bathroom - and he did EVERYTHING. Kids, animals, house, plus his job. He's really tired and seriously deserves a break. He doesn't complain at all, either. I'm so blessed to have him.
