My 19 month old son has become extremely clingy, to the point where I can't even go to the bathroom. As soon as I shut the door, he's screaming and banging on the door. His dad is home and in the room with him! If the gate is up between the living room and the kitchen and I go into the kitchen to get him a snack or fill his drink, he's crying loudly at the gate. If I don't pick him up because I'm cooking or cleaning or even doing something for him, he cries. He's never done this before. It started last weekend. Could he be clingy because he can sense I'm pregnant? How do I fix this?

I don't think it's because he senses your pregnant. I think it's just a faze he is going through. Just stand your ground and don't give in to it. Pick him up when he stops throwing the fit and the behavior should stop.
