Have you ever heard of a father-to-be taking on the symptoms of his pregnant wife? Well, I hadn't heard of that until now.
Over the past few weeks my pregnancy symptoms have been mostly along the lines of nausea....nausea...and more nausea..but luckily no vomiting...yet. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself. Of the many pregnancy symptoms I've had, craving certain foods has not really been one of them.
Although I haven't been craving any weird foods, Rudy has! It's like Rudy is taking on the pregnancy symptoms that I am not experiencing yet.
Last night, after eating his dinner he had this weird craving for corn. He wanted corn and he wanted it immediately - it was funny to watch him scavenging through our little pantry trying to find a can of corn. Finally he found a can and started eating the corn without even bothering to heat it up.
That wasn't the only instance when he had a strange craving - he had one or two other cravings last week late at night, but I didn't think anything of it until last night when he said, "Baby, I think I'M pregnant" right before he went hunting for a can of corn.
How funny is it to think that sometimes husbands take on pregnancy symptoms too while their wives are pregnant? I read that some men even start getting a "sympathy belly," which is when the man starts showing like he is pregnant - crazy, huh?
I sure hope I start having cravings soon for any kind of food because this nausea and no appetite thing is not fun.
Anyway, I am officially 7 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Here's a little information from TheBump.com about week 7:
