Can Your Dog Sense Your Pregnancy?

dogs sensing pregnancy

There's something different

about her these days....

I just read an article suggesting that, although there's no scientific proof, blah, blah, blah ... it's possible that dogs may be able to sense a pregnancy. Even before the mama in question knows she's pregnant.

Apparently, some pregnant women report that their pooch developed a new found sense of love and attachment to them -- essentially becoming clingy and protective -- right around the time they found out that they were pregnant.

It's possible that their uber-keen sense of smell could detect hormonal changes, but dogs are attuned to subtle emotional changes, too. Some CafeMom moms have also been talking about how their pets picked up on the change in preggo status.

What do you think? Have you ever had a pet that you think sensed your pregnancy?
