Hi everyone! i'm a student nurse currently doing an assignment on couvade syndrome and it's so interesting to come here and read about all of your experiences!! having read through much of the past research it's amazing how many expectant dads seek medical help during the pregnancy and even end up having all sorts of invasive medical tests and/or minor surgery to try and diagnose the cause of their symptoms because health professionals simply don't know about the symptoms of this syndrome!! to think how many men could have been saved the hassle of having to have cameras put up both ends to try and find out what's wrong with them if the health professional(s) involved had known to ask one simple question in the first place: is your partner pregnant? i know some may view this syndrome as one that is trying to steal the limelight from the mother to be, but in genuine cases, where symptoms are not made up or exaggerated, it appears that these symptoms are involuntary in nature and are most prominent during the first and third trimester, with symptoms disappearing immeidately after birth or a normally a few days afterwards. so to all of you dads to be - don't worry!! your symptoms are completely normal, you are not alone in this, and they should go away once your baby is born! :d xxx

My wife is expecting in 2 weeks sept 22nd. these are the symptoms i have experienced. early on in her pregnancy before we even knew she was pregnant i gave up smoking i just didnt like it anymore. also i gained about 3 lbs a month all way up for about 30 lbs gained total. for the past month or so i get heartburn when my wife gets heartburn. i also feel bloated and constipated. oh and i also lost my appetite.

Wow, to think how real this is. my girlfriend is pregnant, however we don't live in the same state, she lives in arkansas. though we are very distant, i'm very close to her. just recently started getting symptoms of indigestion, insomnia, change in appetite, some headaches, and itchy skin. her due date is october 20th. this info has been really helpful, and looking forward to seeing my new born baby soon.

I thought it odd that all of a sudden my huband says i think something is wrong with me and i need to go to the doc. i asked why and he said he was throwing up and had stomach cramps. i realized looking back at those days they were the dame days i had severe migraines and was also throwing up. i think i will point him in the direction of this website. kinda sad. also i think if men feel anything during the pregnancy it means that they are just that emotionally involed and care about how you are feeling not trying to steal the attention away from you. i am very greatful to my husband for being as supportive as he is and any other man that show is other half how much he appreciates her carrying his baby.

My husband has been complaining about this with both pregnancys. i used to laugh about it untill i googled it. i came across couvade syndrome, i cant believe it's true. i think its kinda cute. they can sit there and complain about a cramp or a big belly, its too bad they will never experience the full experience. :)
