Dad Tries Out Pregnancy For Mother's Day

As he learns, the struggle is real.

Last year for Mother's Day, vlogger dad Penn Holderness experienced simulated labor pains to get a sense of what his wife Kim has endured as a mom. This year, he's trying out another motherhood challenge: pregnancy.

Penn spent a full day and night wearing an "Empathy Belly," a weighted, padded vest that lets people experience the pain and discomfort of carrying a child. Between feeling overheated, taking forever to put on shoes, needing help to stand up and finding a comfortable position for sleep, the dad gets a glimpse into the pregnancy struggle.

Welcome to motherhood, Penn.
