The effects of pregnancy on men

pregnantMost men believe that pregnancy only affects women since they are the ones who have a child inside but ... what if I told you that the pregnancy affects us too? Stylish Men brings you the latest news about it.

According to a study carried out in the United Kingdom, Intended fathers usually gain more than six kilos during their wives' pregnancy. They also suffer from mood swings, stress, and other disorders.

They get fat because they have a creature inside. We, out of solidarity with our partners. Be that as it may, the truth is that in pregnancy women are not the only ones who gain weight. A UK survey has just revealed that futures parents usually gain about 6,35 kilos on average during pregnancy, published the newspaper El Mundo.

The survey, conducted by the company Onepoll to 5 British fathers, it revealed that 25% of men say they eat more during this period so that their wife does not feel bad about their weight gain. The problem is that this higher calorie intake comes mainly from unhealthy products.

Pizza, beer, chocolate and fried snacks are the most common cravings of future parents, which also indicate that their female partners prepare larger meals for them during pregnancy.

Another reason why men also grow belly is because in those nine months they usually go out to dinner with their partners away from home more than before. 42% of those surveyed acknowledged that they went to restaurants more to take advantage of the time before the baby was born and change their lives.

The study showed that 20% of men are not aware of this weight gain until their clothes stop serving them and they have to renew their wardrobe with “paternity” clothes for their new figure.

Although they largely blame women for their weight gain, the truth is that afterwards they do nothing to lose the extra pounds. According to the survey, only a third of fathers go on a diet after the baby is born, which practically all mothers do.

In addition to gaining weight, several studies have shown that pregnancy also influences men, who experience mood swings, stress and other disorders.

Now you know that bringing a child into the world will not only bring you great responsibilities, but also a few extra kilos 😉

    Hi, I'm Ismael, what happens is that I have a question, my wife is 4 and a half months pregnant and we are separated for almost 2 months, what happens is that I feel that since I got pregnant it has changed a lot and I feel like I stopped her want from one day to the next and I don't know why I loved her a lot. Some people have told me that what happens is that when a man will be a father and the baby will be a child, they tend to think that they stopped loving the woman, and the truth is, I don't know what happens with me, they also tell me that I hit the pregnancy but I don't know what to do with this or for it to end. I want to spend the pregnancy with my wife but I feel like I can't stand her. What happens? Please help me ... thank you for your attention ... .. ismael

    Hi, I'm Yahaira, well, something similar happens to me, I am 5 months pregnant at first, my husband was happy because we would be parents, but now I feel that we are estranged, we fight for anything and he behaves rude to me sometimes! My in-laws tell me that it could be because of the pregnancy that maybe it is affecting him too. but I don't really know! and I do not know what to do! I am desperate and anguished I do not want us to separate.
    well I hope someone helps us solve these doubts!
