Tasks like doing laundry, which involved bending down to soak clothes in detergent, quickly became challenging.

The physical strain of carrying the extra weight around his waist led him to moments of exhaustion, culminating in a much-needed break on the toilet seat.

Despite the sweat and toil, the experiment ended with Narendran unwrapping the watermelon, evidently relieved but also more enlightened.

“Pregnancy is never easy”

Speaking with WeirdKaya, Narendran revealed the experiment was sparked by a playful banter with his wife, where he playfully teased her walking style.

Reflecting on his wife’s reaction, Narendran noted, “She enjoyed giving me tasks, and eventually took pity on me when I couldn’t bear the weight. Yet, we shared heartfelt laughter throughout, creating a cherished memory for both of us.”

Reflecting on his experience, Narendran shared some words of wisdom for other men, emphasizing the underestimated strength and resilience of women during pregnancy.

“As a man, I always assumed that women carrying out their daily tasks during pregnancy was normal… However, this challenge made me truly appreciate the physical strain they endure.”

While his one-day experiment only touched the surface, it highlighted the ongoing challenges women face, from morning sickness to body aches, throughout the pregnancy journey.
