  • did your dogs get along before you were pregnant? is the other dog mean back to the dog that's being aggressive? it's just something to think about, who knows how this dog is going to act with a baby around. be cautious.

  • no they always got along... my husband thinks it has to do with me being prego and he is just bein protective of me..

  • Pets are weird. MY cat is a recluse and never hangs around anyone. He never lets anyone touch him. But when I am pregnant he loves me. He will sit on me whenever I sit down for more than two minutes. Then as soon as I am no longer pregnant he ignores me completely again. This has happened with both of my last two pregnancies. Although he has started doing it again, I have an IUD he has started to cuddle me again. He is just a bizzarro cat!

  • When I was pg with my first baby my dog did that she wanted to be by my side all the time if i took a bath she was in there with my and after the baby ws born she would sleep in the baby's room on the floor its more like she was just watching over everything and being protective not mean. She never bite at me or the baby or anyone else yeah she would growl if you got to close or talked too lound around me though, so i wouldn't get rid of your dog she is just making sure you are safe and ok,

  • Don't get rid of your dog. He doesnt know whats going on right now all he knows is that he senses something isnt as usual. When dogs are put into an unnatural state, they will react unnaturally. Once the baby is born it may take a while but he will readjust.
    I'm only 5 weeks and I woke up last night to my dog licking my entire back. It grossed me out but I know he's starting to sense something different with mommy. Some training goes a long way.

  • My little chihuahua chases one of our cats now, any time she comes downstairs.
    But other than that she's normal.
    And my cats are extra lovey
