Pets

If you have a dog or cat... do you think they know you are having a baby?  I have a girlfriend that swears her dog was different to her while pg.  I have a pug - and I think he may know something is different - although - I keep thinking that he knows because he is being a lot closer to me, and using me more as a pillow... although I also think he may be an opportunist and just using my larger belly for a head rest. lol

So - do you think your dog or cat knows? What makes you think that?

    I have 3 cats and one dog, and none of them are acting any differently. I'm kind of disappointed!

    Ever since I got pregnant this time, my girl cat has been all over me. She is normally a mommas girl, but its been twice as bad. I think she knows its a girl!

    2 dogs, 1 cat, and all are business as usual. Though the babies seem to move around more when the cat lies on my belly.

    I have a dog, I don't think he notices.  Maybe when I get bigger, he may be curious.   I'm wondering if he will be jealous after the baby is born though.  He's used to all of the attention from DH and I, so I think he might be.

    we have a dog and a cat, and they are acting just the same.  our dog is very snuggly he is a 95 lbs lap dog, so he has been the same.  our cat is an almost 5 year old female so stand offish until she wants about a 5 mins snuggle!

    My one cat has been sitting at night when i'm trying to sleep and just STARING at me. It's creepy! My pug is blind and deaf, so he's clueless ;) My lab, she's only a year and a half and she's got no clue! I'm thinking she's going to wonder what the heck the baby is though, because we got her when my DS's were 2 and 4 respectively!

    The big dog in my sig has acted differently toward me since shortly after we found out. He is my husband's dog and he loves me but he really isn't as into me as the smaller dog is.

    For the last few months he has been following me from room to room, even sits outside the bathroom or shower while I use them and sometimes lays his head on my tummy.

    The smaller dog is oblivious.

    Either our cat doesn't know, or she isn't happy about it :p She spends all of her time cuddling with Daddy.

    Buster is offended at the discrimination, but I will speak for her anyway :) Rabbits in general prefer to sit next to a person or on the floor when being pet, but when I was pregnant with Riley all first trimester she would sit on my belly when I laid on the couch. I loved it. Normally when I tried to put her on my lap she ran away. This time around we're in a new place and she prefers her alcove to the living room so we don't see her a lot :(

    We have 3 cats and a dog and now that you mention it...Ruby (my tortie) has been super cuddly lately.  She is NOT a lap cat, but she is laying next to my legs right now (my feet are up in the recliner).

    She did the same thing when I was pregnant with Z.  She went from non-social and non-cuddling to lover kitty. 

    The rest of the animals could care less.

    We have two pugs and I think they know!  They've been smelling my belly for awhile now, and our boy pug will come nap with me and rest his head against it.  He's also been extra cuddly with me in the mornings... when DH puts him into bed for a few minutes, he will curl himself around my bump. 

    Our little girl pug has been more cuddly as well, but she always tries to lay ACROSS my belly!  Baby kicked her the other day (but I don't think she felt it) :)

    I think my one dog definitely knows. He's been following me around everywhere and he sits on my lap at all times. My other dog is still a puppy and could care less!

    I'm sure the dogs know, they hover a lot more now. If the cat knows she prolly doesn't care.

    One of them is obsessed with snuggling me and my belly. When any of them lay with me, they like to lay on my belly. ILs dog doesn't seem to notice.

    Everyone keeps telling me that Puck must know something is up, but I am pretty sure he is oblivious.  He has always liked to sleep snuggled up next to me on the couch.  The only think he is probably noticing is that I am more tired and less likely to get on the floor to play with him.  And he doesn't seem very happy about this change.

    I have a dog, but she is only 3 pounds (maltipoo). I don't think she has a clue, but she has always been insanely loveable and attached to my side so I could be wrong.

    My dog is clueless. 

    This!  She was clueless with DS as well.  And she didn't even realize we brought something new into the house.  She has a love/hate relationship with him now because he throws food on the floor but he also will grab her tail or fall on her if she's in the way.

    This time around they aren't acting any different, but the first time they were all kinds of cuddly with me.

    My dog Maddie follows me everywhere now.  And when R and I 'play fight' she barks at him and gets in between us to protect me.  lol.  I can only imagine how protective she will be when LO gets here.

    Our cats have no idea.  They've been a bit more vocal and annoying in the morning, but I think that has more to do with the fact that we've cut their food back a bit then anything else.

    My dog definitely knows.  She's much needier and sticks by me like glue.
