Does your pet know??

Usually my dog is just kind of there. He doesn't really get up close with me much, once in a while he'll jump on the bed with me til my husband comes to bed. Today I am 37 weeks pregnant and for some reason he's been following me around a little more than usual. I don't have any signs that I'm gonna start labor anytime soon, although I'm hopeful that it's not too far off!!
Anyway, with him under my feet so much since I came home from Church today, it made me wonder. I know dogs are sensitive and can sense things we can't. Do you think he knows something I don't? Do you have any similar stories? Just thought it was an interesting topic to start up :)

  • I'm not sure if they can tell but my dog has been acting a little strange toward me lately. So maybe they can. I'm almost 39 weeks and he's been acting differant towards me pretty much the whole time.
