Could A Man Handle Being Pregnant?

Could A Man Handle Being Pregnant?

I know what you’re thinking already: no way! Am I right, or am I right, mammas and mammas-to-be?

In this hilarious video from Buzzfeed, The Try Guys suit up with fake pregnant bellies to get an idea of what it might feel like being pregnant.

Mind you, it’s minus all the sciatica, nausea, fatigue, rib pain and mood swings at the same time! But, we’ll let them have the bellies and see how they cope just with that, hey?

In the video, you’ll see the four guys going through all the usual daily struggles of a pregnant woman, including rolling over in bed, getting up out of bed, getting dressed, doing housework, going to work and more.

Some of the hilarious quotes include: “I can’t keep my hands off my body” (what’s new, she says), “I’m already tired”, and “I’m out of breath just from wearing it and talking.” And finally, “It’s nice to know that your body wants to destroy you.”

But don’t worry, there are some warm and fuzzy comments in there too: “Even though this is very uncomfortable, I think babies are a beautiful thing.”

Check out more in this funny video below! Don’t forget to share it with dad or dad-to-be and leave us your comments in the comments section below. Oh, before you watch – a mild language warning too.

  1. Honestly, I really appreciate the effort you guys made with this! Despite the physical complications and 20 pound weight loss from nausea, I truly enjoyed pregnancy and will do it again. As a result of this experiment you will understand your wives/future wives better when this time comes! Thank you for giving it a shot, guys!
