Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie
In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard. There’s a pregnant man. Well, sort of. Thomas Beatie was born a woman, but is now legally a man and legally married to a woman. He underwent hormone therapy and had his breasts removed, but kept his reproductive organs. After deciding that he and his wife wanted a child, he was the one to become pregnant. His wife had a hysterectomy several years ago because of medical complications.
Thomas and his wife will be on Oprah today, April 3, 2008.
I hope he is taking his prenatal vitamins. Because regardless of his gender from the waist up, there’s still a baby inside and babies need nutrition. According to Thomas, he is 5 months pregnant. He probably used a pregnancy calculator for his due date.
