My wife is a little over 3 months along. and in the last 2 weeks, I've gained about 5 lbs of what looks to be pure fat!
That's just not cool! I haven't made any significant changes to my diet or routine...
It appears that it may be a real thing. I can't recall this happening during her pregnancy w/my other children. but that could be that I'm a lot more conscious of my health/fitness these days.
- according to wiki
"Studies have shown that the male partner cohabitating with a pregnant female will experience hormonal shifts in his prolactin, cortisol, estradiol, and testosterone levels, typically starting at the end of the first trimester and continuing through several weeks post-partum".
elevated cortisol will make you gain weight and lose muscle (and therefore strength).
Anyone else experience this?
