Anyone else feel so much closer to their animals now? I have a 8 month old kitten and before I got pregnant she didn't want anything to do with me, now she's constantly all over me and if any body squirts her with the spray bottle I get extremely defensive and she's always wanting to be near/on my belly. Just wondering if anyone else is going through this?

Lol it's like they know that you're pregnant. My kitten carries around a stuffed monkey and will drop it in her food bowl trying to feed it like she's going to be a mommy.

Aw makes me feel bad cause I was so close to my dog before pregnancy now he drives me crazy....he always wants to get right up in my face and I hate that. I hope I'm nicer to him after the baby gets here :( I feel bad cause I know it's my hormones

I have a lot of animals but the only one who seems closer to me is my dog benji, he follows me everywhere and always wants to be laying on me. And he's always acted like a grumpy old man and doesn't like Being around people, so I like how much he likes me now:)

My cat is heavily pregnant so we have alot in common at the moment, I actually feel sorry for her trying to get comfy!! I've never been a cat person and my cat has never really been friendly (farm cat) but she's so loving since I found out I was pregnant and even more so since she got pregnant.

My 7 month old shih tzu is the same way he'll cry outside the door when I'm in the bathroom and he HAS to sleep with me and if he wants to take a nap it has to be on my belly. I wa tellig my mom about this and she told me animals really can sense that your pregnant I love it and he's so small that it doesn't bother me at all :)

My pup I just got yesterday has been attached to me 100%. She ignores my boyfriend and runs straight to me. At the moment she is curled up on me and sleeping with her head on my belly. She is a pit pup so she is not that small lol. I love her to death. She even pushes open the bathroom and bedroom doors just to get to me.
