Rosie isn't exactly a big fan of Couvades Syndrome.

Couvades Syndrome?! Yep, it’s a real thing. Basically it’s when a man experiences pregnancy symptoms -- from nipple enlargement, sensitive breasts, weight gain, nausea, all the way through to feelings of pain during delivery. There are many fascinating theories about how this is not a new syndrome (so no, men aren't suddenly getting MORE in touch with their feelings in 2012) and that it is a positive thing, since men become more in touch with their partners in pregnancy and preparation to be a dad. After all, many men say that as because they aren't pregnant, they really don't find themselves mentally and emotionally preparing for the baby until it is actually here, whereas a woman has nine months of changes to get used to the idea.
