The Big O's Couvade Syndrome


I am a creature without empathy. Apparently. The Big O, however, obviously has it in droves. Mom thows up, he throws up. He hasn't packed any pounds on yet, but then, neither has she.

I've never heard of a child getting sympathetic pregnancy before.


What's wrong with me?


  1. Apparently I would race my mother to the toilet to throw up when she was pregnant with my little sister. Yikes!

  2. Or is it just that he's so grossed out by seeing her throw up that he tosses his cookies? Maybe look at it like you are the strong silent support in the family with guts of steel. They NEED you!

  3. .

    That's me.

    In fact, apart from muscles and mind, all of me is made of steel.
