My husband always seems to gain weight while I'm pregnant. I don't bug him about it (because it guarantees I won't end up weighing as much as he does!), but the other morning around the computer were an empty Diet Coke, a half eaten box of chocolate chip cookies, a truffle wrapper, and an empty bag of salt & vinegar potato chips! Geesh!! You'd think he really was pregnant!

NO and it's infuriating because in 7 pounds, I will outweigh him. This is NOT ok with me but I suppose that's what I get for being attracted to the scrawny ones

No. Mine is losing weight and preening in front of the mirror and telling me all about how easy it is to lose weight and how great he feels.

Is it cruel to think stab.stab.stab?

Mine is, but mostly because he stopped exercising when I did (which was due to extreme fatigue and nausea) and spends much more time in front of the computer than before. Since I was MIA most of the time he took up World of Warcraft and life as I knew it has never been the same.
