Have you seen these guys in the UK?
Backache, swollen breasts and the constant urge to pee: Meet the DADS wearing 33-pound ’empathy bellies’ to experience the pain of being nine months pregnant. These three fathers are wearing two-and-a-half stone baby bumps for a month.

Now I truly believe you can’t fully replicate the true experience a woman has being pregnant, but this would at least shed some light on how uncomfortable it is.
But it is just a suit. I would guess there is much more stress and worry when you know that there is a living person in there and not just weight.
Props to these guys for trying it.
