Is it me or can my dog sense that I am pregnant


I know dogs can sometimes be overprotective during pregnancies, but I could swear that my dog has been sniffing my breasts lately. Could it be that she senses the changes in my body? She is a one year old shephard mix.

I'm sure animals can sense something ... not sure what exactly. One of my two cats who is a rescue and normally hides all day is now constantly hovering around me.

My dog was super cuddly and always sniffing my belly and breasts even before I knew I was pregnant. He was te least cuddly of our dogs. And my cat who usually hides all day and only cones out at night to eat is out most of the day and even puts up with my dog too!

Dogs actually CAN sense tht we r pregnant. I looked this up a few days ago, and apparently they can pick up on the increase of hormones.

She can probably smell the milk coming in. My friends' dog kept sniffing me when I was only 4 weeks or so when I went over there. You could tell he knew. He even moved over on the couch, so that I could sit down.

Ur dog can sense it.. Minus the fact that my one cat is EXTREAMLY friendly now he likes to sleep on my side when im sleeping now :S. Though I think he was a little pissy this morning, cause he took a dodge for outside when I came home lol (hes an indoor cat for 4 years, never been outdoor minus when we moved in a kennel).

Oh my goodness, I thought that I was the only one wondering this!! I was just thinking earlier this week why is my dog so much more affectionate than usual, wanting to cuddle under me all the time and following me step for step! (Well he's always done the last part lol, but the cuddling has definitely increased)!

This is probably unrelated, but I have three cats that live inside and I love them dearly, they're my babies; anywho, they've been really gentle around me lately and normally they're crazy and running around like little horses. They won't jump on me like they normally do and they rub on my belly, they've never done that. Hmm, maybe animals have some sort of intuition? (:
