  • My cat never likes to cuddle. When I was pregnant, he wouldn't leave me alone. He was always laying on my belly and wouldn't move. As soon as I had the baby, he stopped doing it. When I got pregnant again, same thing. Since then he will very rarely come and lay on my belly and I freak out that he can sense I am pregnant and I don't know yet.

  • I had a cat who HATES people normally - she'll run and hide from them - but when I was pregnant, she LOVED me. She'd come sit next to me and occasionally curl up on my lap. I think they sense the hormones.

  • Yep - my cat I had when I got preg. with my 1st knew I was pregnant before I did. she always used to lay on my lap but closer to my knees - when I was preg. she started laying right up against my stomach. she's part of the reason I took a preg test. one of the cats we have now, he wont come near me when im preg. with #2 & #3, he completely avoided me the entire time.

  • I went to my friends house one day and her dog wouldnt leave me alone for nothing! I would hide in her room adn he broke the door now. I didnt know why he wouldnt leave me alone. Well a few weeks later I got sick and so on and took a test and found out I was pregnant. So I told my friend and thats when we found out why her dog wouldnt leave me alone. We wanted to see what her dog would do when I went back over there since I already knew I was pregnat. Well he did the same thing. Wouldnt leave me alont for NOTHING!

  • I had a cat whose favorite place to sleep was my stomach. I was sure Kiddie would flip the first time my daughter kicked but it made no differance. Kiddie continued to sleep there through out the majority of my pregnancy. I don't know that she did it more then normal though.

  • When I was pregnant, my collie, Maggie, used to lay on my belly and lick me and I had no problem with it. My horses used to put their ears against my belly to.
