Hi, all. My sister in law is pregnant and my brother has been having morning sickness, nausea and sympathy pains. He's having cravings, too. We were talking yesterday and he had an interesting idea. Many men have sympathy pains when their significant other is pregnant. What if it's caused by a pheromone that the woman gives off while she's pregnant? Then again, it could be psychosomatic. Anyway, I don't know if a study has been done on this. I thought the idea was kind of out there so that's why I'm posting in the Gray Area. What are your thoughts?

He's making it up to win brownie points with his wife.

The sperm donor could certainly be capable of having a connection that is more than emotional or psychosomatic. Just hope he enjoys the pickles rolled in dirt!

I have 3 kids. Never once did I have sympathy pains. I've never known any man who has. If you want to really have sympathy pains? Shove a 8 lb bowling ball up your a$$. That's the only way you're ever gonna come close to what women have to go through.

It is true. My girl friend many years ago was pregnant with my baby, and I had morning sickness the whole time she was pregnant. I have never said anything to anyone about this until now. I was embarrassed!

I have always wondered if other men went through this?

Now I've heard of sympathy pains, but sympathy morning sickness?

I think your brother must be very attuned with his wife's emotions and that. I think it's possible. Not probable, but somewhat possible.

After reading the above comments, my guess would be no. It might be that only a handful of men go through it.

He usually has a strong stomach but the smallest things have been making him sick. And yes, they're very close. I think that may have something to do with it.

That got a laugh out of me. It reminds me of the "birth simulator" video where the guy is screaming and crying.

Same here, I have always had a strong stomach and can handle anything, however anything could make me sick while she was pregnant. It was really weird.

He works stocking shelves in a store. I guess the chemical aisle really sets him off.

I have a friend who is pregnant at the mo. And every time she is pregnant her sister gets cravings and tiredNess etc all things that go with pregnancy, her sister even gets cramps and contraction feelings when my friend goes into labour. My friends sister lives on another island in our country. It does happen but have not heard of many men having it.

I worked on the oil Rigs in Louisiana, and I would stay sick away from her. When she had the baby it all stop.

This is why men do not talk about this wired issue. We don't want to be labeled sensitive P....

My husband gained weight with all 3 of my pregnancies. Never heard him admit to sympathy pains though. However, he did gag a few times when I indulged my cravings.

What were you craving, exactly?

Apparently it's not all that uncommon.


They're suffering from couvade syndrome. In this condition, sometimes called sympathetic pregnancy, the expectant mother's partner (or, in some cases, a very close friend or relative) has symptoms that uncannily mimic pregnancy.

If you're dealing with couvade in your household, we can point you to two likely suspects: stress and empathy. According to Duerbeck, stress releases chemicals in the body that can manifest as sympathetic pregnancy. And let's face it, with financial worries, health concerns, and good old-fashioned cold feet, pregnancy is often stressful for both parties. Add a little empathy to the mix, and you have a perfect recipe for couvade.

Although men may not talk about it much, these symptoms are not uncommon. In fact, Duerbeck automatically expects to see couvade syndrome in certain situations. Couples who have dealt with infertility or pregnancy loss, for example, are particularly susceptible.
