Anyone elses cat going nuts???


So my date changes with every scan I get... But the latest puts me at 7 weeks 2 days.

MY CAT HAS LOST HER FREAKING MIND.
I've never had cats. I'm really not a fan. But this one moved herself into the bushes outside of our house 2 years ago and my animal loving child gave the guilt trip... So we have a damn cat.

And she will NOOOOOOOT leave me alone! She's constantly trying to sit on me, rub on me, talk to me... And she used to request a rub or two a day and then go back to sleeping. I've heard animals can know when you are pregnant... Is anyone else dealing with this? She's being so sweet but Damnit give me some space!

This is so sweet! I know it’s annoying but it’s so cute. I don’t have a cat (hubby is allergic and it was a genuine decision whether to marry him knowing that as I am an extreme cat person!) but our dog has for sure been behaving diffeeently. The first few weeks he was really clingy, that has worn off now but he will still come and lay his head on my stomach, and is a bit more protective of me. Apparently they can hear the heartbeat!?
I’m sure it’ll wear off soon - he lasted until I was about 8 weeks and then gradually got used to it I think (baby is still in there and okay though!).

Yeah, my cat turns into a lovey-dovey drooling purr machine when I get pregnant. He did it when I was pregnant with my son and he's doing it now. Our dog is oblivious.

Our cat, who hates people, started laying on me and being just like yours around the time I got pregnant. I feel like she knew before we did.

I'm a strong believer that animals know when we're pregnant. They say if you go swimming with dolphins while you're pregnant they can detect pregnancy in humans even before they know they are. I don't have a cat but we do live on a farm and I've noticed one of my pigs (she is pregnant too) has been very lovey-dovey with me. She won't stop following me around and will literally stand beside me for hours at a time if I let her. It's like she is trying to have a buddy to share this pregnancy with

I also have a male sheep who is usually a rogue but he has been very easy going with me lately, like he knows somehow. It's crazy. They're better pregnancy detectors than those damn sticks lol!

Funny you should say this, my mums cat never comes to me anymore on his own accord but last night he saw me sitting on the sofa and came and jumped on my nap and snuggled in right next to my bump! X

I don't know if this was already said, but cats have toxins in there feces and it could give the baby respitory infections so stay on top of it, also... cats like to next and snuggle and suffocate people and lay whereever they want and while your baby can't move for itself it might lay on her in her crib or bassinet, so becareful with having a cat when you have a newborn.

My granddaddy used to say this, he said it wss because their mouths smell like milk (the baby) but my mom is an RN and had worked both ld and nicu she said this is just that am old wives tale because I was freaking out when pregnant with my first because my cat never really left my room except to use the litter pan but she said this is not true they may climb in the crib but will not purposely suffocate a newborn and sure enough my cat would snuggle with my baby but never hurt him and he was declawed (i didn't declaw i adopted him this way) and I've had cats with 3 newborns and they all loved the baby.

Not saying what you said has no merit just don't want any first time mom's to freak out thinking their cat is a danger to their newborn for no reason. The kitty litter is harmful though
