    i think alot has to do with the fact that women take on the idea (and im no exception) that they can eat anything they want to which in turn provides extra food for the guy hanging around. why should pregnant women have all the fun (and pain) and good eats?

    It could be sympathy pregnancy on the man’s part. Kind of like when a person throws up because they saw another person throw up and that’s called sympathy barfing.

    Or he could just be getting lazy because his wife/gf has been taking it easy lately too.

    Or he’s picking up his wife/gf’s crazy new eating habits.

    Or all of these! :)

    Because women crave all the junk food that isn’t good for you and pregnant women leave it laying around so men eat the same thing and gain weight. So when women complain about their husband or bf getting fat or being fat just know it’s your fault.

    i haven’t been around my baby’s father for most of my pregnancy and hes gained over 30 pounds and complains how bad his back hurts and all the heart burn he has…. i love it ha ha….
    so the others saying they have been around and eat what mom does not true

    I think there is 2 reasons why they gain weight

    1. If they have a smoking problem they know they’ll have to give it up so they try to quit, but get an eating habit

    2.They might get stressed out thinking how hard it will be to have a baby thus they begin to eat away

    My husband gained some weight when I was pregnant. I’m sure it’s because every time I craved something he went with me to get it, and got something for himself too. He also had a carreer change that involved way less movement, so I’m sure that’s part of the reason too. He got sympathy stretch marks too!

    OMG i thought i was the only one who noticed. i guess they just feel left out whenever they see us cramming down on all our cravings and on all kinds of foods and sh*t so they want to eat every time they see us eating. my bf has put on a little weight tho.
