Hi ya, I was just wondering for those that have animals are you finding that they're behaving differently around you? We have a little dog (Lhasa apso x bijon frise) and normally she comes up and forces herself upon me by laying on my belly/chest area. She's no light footed dog and usually puts all of her weight on my ovary area and then on my belly - she's such a lump! But I've noticed that since I got my bfp she hasn't done this. Even my dh has noticed 'cos she used to do this a lot (only dog syndrome - spoilt rotten). We're wondering if she can sense that I have a little person in me. Are you finding something similar?
Before I knew I was pregnant I noticed my cat acting even more loving and affectionate than usual. She is a very affectionate, needy cat normally but it seems like now she is following me around constantly and sleeping much closer to me. I wouldn't go so far as to say that she knows I'm pregnant, but she can probably sense that something is up, even if its just that I smell different.
I dont have pets but my best friend has 2 cats, they never sit on me or stay for more than 30 secs to let me strike them. Before I found out I was pregnant they both curled up on me and fell asleep. Since I found out, everytime I go over there they are very loving and always want to be near me, one of them even keeps rubbing his nose against my belly! xx
My cat is following me everywhere and sits on me at opportunity she gets.. If she can't sit on me she sits staring at me all the time lol She's usually all over my oh and not bothered with me... strange how they know!
My dog is definitely acting much more protective of me than usual. He follows me around a lot more, and when I sit down he sits right in front of me, body touching my leg, facing away - his "guard" position. It's adorable!
