Have any of you ladies noticed a change in your pets? My cat never slept with me in my room he would always sleep in my moms room on her spare pillow with his blanket and ever since ive been pregnant hes never left my side! He throws fits when I leave my room for more than 5 minutes and he nudges my stomach almost all the time every day. Has anyone noticed a change or is it just me?

My parents have a doberman/pit bull mix that's only 2 and she constantly licks my belly. I've never been a huge animal so it's weird when she comes over and immediately goes at it lol

My cats are more clingy, my one will continuously try to lay on my belly, with her belly touching mine n just start purring as loud as she can, or she'll lay her head on my belly like she's listening for the baby lol

Yes! My cat, when I  was abt 4w she would follow me room to room. Now she sleeps curled up agents my belly n bites my fiancees toes so she can lay with me with out him there.

Cats (and dogs as well) can sense pregnancy. :)

Yes! I have two cats and I swear they never leave me in a room by myself. If I walk to the kitchen or get ready to leave, they are right there. It's like they're my protectors! :) 18 weeks 6 days today!

My puppy is hurendous! Everywhere I go, he goes, he won't let my boyfriend touch me, if anyone goes near my belly he goes mad, thing is, he is actually my boyfriend's pup!

Sadly we had to rehome our dog recently due to him being very protective of me. He would wait outside every room i went to and he even marked his territory by my side of the bed. Needless to say we had to let him go to another family as couldnt risk him being the same or worse with the baby. He is lurcher. Too many stories on the news these days about dogs attacking babies or cats sitting on babies in their moses baskets. Very very sad :(

My kitty never used to cuddle now he sleeps near my belly at night and likes to lay on my belly and purr. Everytime he lays on my belly my little girl kicks and he likes to put his paws wherever he gets kicked at :) I hope they bond well when she is born.
