    How true is it that partners can take on pregnancy symtoms for the woman?

    Is it just an old wifes tale or can it really happen?

    Jase has put on weight, got headaches, been tired, felt sick and now is arsey as hell! he has more hormones than me!!!

    but if i tell him it makes him worse and i get it in the neck.

    Coinsidence? or can it really happen do you think?

    'Some men experience pregnancy symptoms, too. Men have been known to get nauseous, experience some type of food craving and gain weight during their partner's pregnancy.'

    I believe it. My OH often becomes sick after being around me for the entire day. When he is feeling ill, I suddenly feel much better. He seems to take on all of my cramping, back pain and nausea. No complaints here.

    The other day I was hoping it would happen again, but alas, I was stuck with the symptoms and moody as anything!:cry:
