My dog is acting weird.

I have an 11 year old mini daschund, she is awesome, my best friend, my little baby.  This is my first pregnancy and I'm a little over 34 weeks now.  Although we are very close, I've notice she has been extra clingy.  She follows me everywhere. When I get up in the middle of the night, she gets up with me and lays outside the door when I'm showering..etc.. Basically wherever I am she is. She loves to play with my boyfriend, but lately if I'm not right there beside him, she wants nothing to do with him. Can she sense the baby is coming? She cuddles with me with her head on my belly, so I'm starting to wonder if she knows he's in there and just wants to be next to him. Anyone else have this happen?

Yes the same thing happened  to me with my boyfriend  family dog he was also I older dog & the further  along in my pregnancy  I got the more he followed  me around a few days before  i went into labor (my water broke naturally) he started growling at ppl lokking back i felt as though he knew i was in the beginning stages of labor & was just trying to keep ppl away from me lol but yes your dog knows exactly whats going with you she may start even becoming  more protective of you the closer you get to your due date but good luck & appreciate  the affection she is giving you! :)

My dog does the same thing! I've heard that dogs do sense pregnancy. When I was in my first trimester with morning sickness my dog would throw up everytime I felt bad. Even if he threw up and I didn't I would feel better, it was strange. I'm 34 weeks and He's  followed me and  has sat outside the bathroom door the whole time I've been pregnant. He's never done it before.

Same here with my hubby's dog, I swear the dog knew I was pregnant before I did and followed me everywhere always at my feet. When our son was born she(the dog) was so protective of the baby, wherever baby was she was
