My husband is a very sensitive man and whenever I am pregnant and I am suffering from m/s and would need his support, he is instead suffering alongside me. He is extremely tired, unmotivated, kinda depressed and has prostate issues (I assume because it is in the same general region as my uterus). I am wondering if this is couvade syndrome or if this is an attention issue (as in I get more attention and he can not take it). It is quite hard to constantly hear how badly he is doing while I am stricken with morning sickness.
Anyone else of you have a similar experience?

No preggo symptoms from DH but hugs for you! How challenging to need to comfort DH when you're wanting to be comforted.
DH is coping w/my lack of motivation/help, but doesn't seem all to thrilled about the extra work (especially since he's being worked pretty hard at his job due to all this rain!).
