It is possible. The official name for this is Couvade syndrome, and it is also known as sympathetic pregnancy. Dads-to-be can experience a range of similar symptoms including bloating, nausea, back pain, and cravings!

It is not exactly known what causes this to happen, and a range of possible causes are still being considered. Men’s hormone levels do change during pregnancy and birth in response to becoming a father, so it is also possible this is linked somehow.

Couvade syndrome is usually short term with no additional complications. Pregnancy complications
