Cats and dogs sense pregnancy! Cats can smell the milk production and dogs smell a certain scent from your sweat

I too am 38weeks and 2cm dilated!  I'm also having period like cramps, but no diarrhea.  I lost my mucous plug last night, and it's all normal,  just your body telling you is almost time!  And my dog WILL NOT leave me alone,  lol

Thats what i figured. Just getting antsy. The cat and dog thing ive never heard before. Thats a little weird. ;) i havent lost my plug nor did i with my 1st. But that was 14 years ago and i know every pregnancy is different. Just wasnt sure if the period cramps were braxton hicks as i dont remember having any kind of signs with my first until the contractions.

Yeah the animals sensing it is just crazy,lol! With my first I didn't loose it,  so this time around was a little weird, and kinda gross! Braxton hicks is when you're belly tightens really hard,  like rock hard!

Ok well then ive been having those too. I just thought the baby was moving in a weird position. Wonder why the period like cramps then. Pre contractions if thats a thing i guess.

My cat is a right stuck up posh little thing who lets u stroke her for approx 3mins before 'letting u know' shes had a enough of human contact but throught this preg shes actually been siting on my belly curling up and cuddling in. Like im sitting waiting for her to snap lol. Right with u there!! Im 38+3 lost bloody plug on sat and a bit sun and now just plug today altho I dont think he has any intention of coming out just teasing me I think. Such a long time these last cpl weeks, every hr seems like a day!! All the best tho :)
