No, it's not like having the stomach flu. It has to do with how the mom's body reacts to the hormones, nothing more. My oldest got so used to me being sick that when my husband came home and asked where Mommy was, he very calmly looked up and said, "In the bathroom throwing up." He never got sick, though I was having trouble remembering what was so great about eating. I remember now and have gained the weight to prove it!

Never heard of it or known of it to happen. Kids could get sick of their pregnant mom tho maybe? And act out or act like mom I guess. Seriously tho, I've never heard of it. If anything it would be "aping".

Well, if I am understanding your question, since you didn't really elaborate, you are asking if your child who says her tummy doesn't feel good and that she needs to throw up might be doing it because you or your friend have morning sickness in front of her.

Yes, it's possible. But it's psychological. It's not like she's going to catch a virus. If you throw up in front of her and she smells it, that could make her wretch or even throw up.

I'd get her out of the house with someone else or go out with her to help you both "forget" the morning sickness. And I wouldn't talk about feeling sick with her.

Children can be very empathetic.

Maybe.. I mean, weirder things could happen. Men often gain weight while their wife is pregnant. My hubby gained more than I did, lol.

welcome to mamapedia!!! what a great first question!!! don't "get" morning sickness...they can have what is called couvade syndrome...otherwise known as psychological symptoms.

Couvade is French for "hatch" so they use that for men who are experiencing morning sickness when their wives are pregnant...

other than that? I call troll.
