Can babys really feel if their mom is prgnant?

I was just wondering if it was true how people say your baby can feel if your pregnant like they will start acting up more and stuff like that because my son just started acting up n he normaly doesn't he is 1 1/2 yrs? So was just wondering if any has gone through something like this or if this is true?

  • no thats not true.. but 1/12 is when the kids start to get personality and start to test you and act up and explore

  • My son seemed to sense it. But he got really cuddly. He was one when I got pregnant.

  • I believe so my oldest seemed to know. Two weeks before I even knew she rubbed my belly and said mommy is there a baby in there? With out my even having any thought about preg. I'm one who believes in sixth sense so I got a test sure enough pos. I didn't even realize I was late, or had any symptoms. Though dh said he noticed, but didn't want to mention it and get my hopes up.

  • My daughter refered to the baby long before we told her that I was. I had miscarried twice before that pregnancy so I was extra careful to say nothing to her and her brother about it. She would refer to it, include it in plans, everything. It was strange!

  • My son did the same thing when I was pregnant with my daughter! It was like he knew something was going to change and he didn't like it. Hang in there. My son got over it within about a month. Now he loves his sister. =)
