    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    My husband gained 20 pounds during my first pregnancy. He also got heartburn and morning sickness. I didn't get morning sickness with my first but this one, I am 16 weeks now and its just subsiding. However, this pregnancy, He has gained the weight again and only gets heartburn so far. We always joke that we can tell Im pregnant when he gains weight and gets heartburn.
    There isn't really anything you can do about his pregnancy symptoms. I tease my husband but if this bothers your husband just do to him what you would want him to do for you. I promise that with most cases, his problems go away after delivery.

    Wow I thought he was weird lol. He just eats like a teenage boy. I have tried to slow his eating, and he tells me too eat. And my mom just tells me to give him some otc meds. Cause they seem to help. But I am hoping that he won't get the pains I have, cause those hurt.
