Do you say we are pregnant

Zandrock Zandrock
Just curious about how many males consider themselves to be part of the pregnancy. I always thought it was a bit sexist that the man is not considered pregnant. Now I understand the woman has to deal with a lot more shit, but still it is your baby too. Part of you is growing. You made half of it. Just curious how many men out there would consider themselves to be pregnant too.

So the question is, if your partner was pregnant, would you say WE are pregnant.

My partner would not phrase it that way. I would technically be the one who is pregnant. He would say something more along the lines of, "We're expecting."

My husband went back and forth with it. Sometimes he would say we, sometimes he would say my wife.

No, the man is NOT pregnant, the woman is. The man is involved in supporting the woman during this time. Or he should be. But he is NOT pregnant.

Truthfully, I feel the man's world is rocked far harder by pregnancy than a woman's. The woman gets to feel the changes and adjust to them because they are happening to her and she can deduce and understand them on a level that he doesn't get to experience.

There are a million books on how to handle the arrival of baby and the changes the woman is going through from a woman's perspective but there aren't very many books for daddies-to-be.

They are only bearing witness to the event and don't have the hormonal spikes and changes and it can be extremely confusing to them. So yes, THEY are pregnant.

If he's a man who likes to stay on top of things (no pun intended), his sleeping schedule, his eating schedule, the frequency of sex (without a change in desire for the act itself) go through just as many changes as her's will. Three lives are intertwining in a way that only death can undo. It affects everyone.

In my own opinion.. no, the man is not pregnant. He is expecting. To be pregnant, he would need to be the one actually carrying the child -- which, obviously, he's not.

I am a man and I say that. It's my seed in there.

We just had a conversation about that the other day I think it sounds stupid to say "we" are, because the guy is not pregnant!

I'd be supportive and active in the pregnancy, but I wouldn't say that I myself am pregnant. But then again I think really logically, so logically, no. I am not pregnant. lol

I would say no here too. Technically, only the girl is pregnant but overall it's both partners baby. EdenFantasys Logo

Unless you're going it alone, I think it's appropriate to refer to the partnership.

together you are having a baby but the male saying "we" are pregnant seems like a knock to what the female goes through to carry the child.

No, I think it's annoying when couples say "we are pregnant". You should say my wife is expecting our baby. It just sounds stupid the other way

Nope. Only the person physically carrying the baby is pregnant. You don't get cookies for saying "we."
