Yes, it does happen. It has been known that in some cases that the father will experience severe heartburn and backache. In other cases the father will actually have the old symptoms of morning sickness and cravings for all different and weird things to eat.
it is known sometimes as 'sympathetic pregnancy' where the father is so in tune with the mother that he has the same sensations as the mother, even though he cannot be physically pregnant.

This "Sympathetic Pregnancy" as mentioned above, is officially named Couvade Syndrome. Men typically exhibit the same early pregnancy symptoms as their pregnant partner and they can last a few days, weeks, or the entire pregnancy, based on the pregnant woman's symptoms.
