I was going to post this in the cuddly side of the site, but as I never look there myself I thought I might get a better response from the wider readership. The idea of blokes getting morning sickness, mood swings, back pains et al just didn't ring true in my ears, it sounds too 'new-age traveller' to be taken seriously. Personally I've always thought it was a load of boIIocks invented by pony-tailed, basket weaving hippie types, but I'm no longer convinced. Couvade Syndrome appears to be the medical term and I've read a little about it, however are there any fathers here on Arrse who have experienced any sympathetic symptoms of pregnancy ? This isa serious question by the way, regardless of it being posted in the NAAFI.
