Surviving pregnancy is not an easy feat for any man.
Pregnancy can turn your life upside down, make the woman you loved into a monster, and the monster you love just a woman.

Congratulations! Your wife is pregnant and your life as you know it has ended! Before the pregnancy you were like a free bird flitting in and out whenever you wanted. Now, you need to worry about your beautiful ballooning wife.

A huge part of surviving pregnancy is understanding that for each woman, the ordeal is different.
This means, just because it was easy for your sister,mother, aunt, or dog, does NOT mean that it will be so for your wife.

So how does it feel?

Imagine waking up and having a hangover. Now imagine waking up every morning that way.

You head is spinning, your stomach lurches, and you feel like shit.

So yeah, your wife is waking up hung over every morning, but without the fun journey.


Imagine that you had amazing Mexican food, that moment when your stomach gets queasy. You know that eating that extra chili was a mistake. There is a sharp pain in your stomach and you rush to the bathroom.

But for her there is no bathroom, just that feeling of remorse and the regret at the extra chili. The chili that is now tossing and turning in her stomach with no way to escape.
