Aw, bless your cat
My two brothers - when we first had them one would ignore me and the other always wanted a cuddle. When I became pregnant it was like they swapped personalities. The one who wanted cuddles decided to ignore me and the one who ignored me wouldn't leave me alone! I think they can sense things.

Cat faeces does carry some nasty things so it's advisable pregnant women don't go near it, or at least wear gloves if you have to deal with it or if you're into gardening.
As for them sitting on baby, yes it could happen but the amount of households with cats and babies, I don't think it's a common thing BUT the sensible thing would be not to allow the cat in the same room as the baby unless you're in there to keep an eye on things. We don't allow them in our bedroom and didn't when our youngest were newborn and we didn't leave them unattended anyway obviously but I wouldn't have say put the baby down for a nap, gone to wash up and allowed any cats in at the same time. It's just common sense not to. Otherwise they don't pose a danger imo

Yep my male kitty meaows outside my bedroom door in the mornings then tries to jump up into my arms since I've been preggers and the female purrs like a friken motor when I pick her up. This started a while before I found out even!

From what I read the cats feces are dangerous when they are outdoor cats. My cat never goes outside farther than 2 feet from our front door for a total of 5 minutes at most. Im a single mom so I've stayed away as much as possible but its not always possible.

That is so cute. One of my cats has been acting weird lately We have a baby gate to keep them from coming upstairs, but lately she’s been defeating it and sneaking upstairs to try to sleep with me. If she can’t get through the gate and she hears us moving around upstairs, she stands on the landing and meows at the top of her lungs. That part is less cute!

My DH is on cat litter duty for the next 8 months! Lucky him.

Oh really? That's interesting, haven't heard that before. Kind of impossible for you to completely stay away from if your cat is an indoor cat though, I'd just wear gloves to be on the safe side even though I know you're not actually handling the poo.

Funny enough we just got a bfp yesterday and one of our cats has been following me literally everywhere. When she sees me she makes a beeline ... little weirdo lol

Anytime Iíve been pregnant the cat Iíve had at the time has always acted weird. Really affectionate and vocal. Like constantly crying for attention. Also he has seemed to develop separation anxiety whenever I close the bathroom door...which he never has done before.

OMG YES! She was already super vocal... Now she NEVER shuts the hell up! And when im in the bathroom she sits outside of the door and whines with her paw under the door going back and forth reaching for me Lol.
Im ready to throw her back outside where I found her. Not really... But the idea has crossed my mind.
One thing I am super worried about is how bad she sheds however... I literally vacuum and lint roll every day and its still everywhere. I can't handle it. We have hard floors with a large rug in each room... But there are literally piles of her fur daily...
She HATES being brushed. HAAAAATES baths even more. SHE ATTACKS ME DURING A BATH. Im not dealing with that. I don't really have the money to be taking her to a groomer... Im starting to think if I want the fur gone she has to go... Any suggestions before I start looking for another home for her? I will FREAK OUT if my baby's stuff has cat hair all over it.
