Cauvade Syndrome a.k.a Sympathetic Pregnancy

Hi Ladies, anybody had of Sympathetic Pregnancy. It’s where husbands and partners of expectant mothers get pregnancy symptoms. I must admit I am a bit naive and was shocked when I read this.My poor hubby has been sick since Thursday night and I worried he was having a heart attack with him having been diagnosed with a heart condition over two years ago so I googled and this is what I found: livestrong.com/article/3261...

There is lots of article about men getting symptoms when their partners are pregnant. I have not been sick though I have terrible nausea but my hubby bless him has been very sick. It happens to some men and I guess he is among the few.

So ladies, don’t panic like I did when he could not stop being 🤢 sick. He thought and still thinks it’s a salad he ate when we went out for lunch on Thursday but I now know that it’s Sympathetic Pregnancy symptoms.

Wow this is really interesting, it's good for men to go through part of what us ladies go through they get off too lightly in the physical parts in my opinion 🤣 💗🤗😘

That’s right. I do feel sorry for poor hubby though. I spoke to an older lady today who said to me her hubby had it really bad. I think it’s good to share with men.x

😂 😂 😂 😂. You would feel sorry for him love. Whenever I said to hubby I was tired he would ask me how long will that last. I said to him I didnot know. I think he was tired of me being tired 😂. Now it’s his turn and I am feeling sorry for him. He cannot eat anything at the moment. He says he feels sick and because he has been sick that many times he is frightened to eat. He is tired too now. So I have to be the strong one and look after both of us x
