We have a dog who I think is just recently starting to sense that change is happening because of the baby. I'm 38w5d and in the last few weeks our pup, who is already a little high-anxiety, has started getting so clingy toward me it's hard to deal with. I work from home, so this is an all-day ordeal.
To make matters worse, I've been experiencing some kind of instinct where I feel my priorities shifting to the baby and feel just a little less lovey-dovey toward the dog. I feel guilty about it, but then as he follows me around literally everywhere, whining at me for attention, trying to slip into the bathroom with me as I'm shutting the door (he can't even stand to be separated while I pee!), I'm growing more frustrated and it's making my own feelings even worse. I'm still making an effort to give him some attention and take him for walks, but it's never enough now. And when DH comes home from work, he doesn't even care anymore and still follows me, watching me like he's obsessed.
Anyone have any experience like this or tips? It's starting to wear on my nerves a lot.
