Certainly one of my colleagues confessed that canine hate her usually, however have been instantly appearing candy towards her when she was pregnant. One other mentioned her dog all the time needed to be in her lap when she was pregnant. As a result of that’s so comfy as your stomach expands and expands.

So, I needed to snicker when one mama mentioned her dog, who most popular to be left alone till she received pregnant, now enjoys licking her burgeoning stomach!

Or runs away when I flip out over one thing (hormones), even when it has nothing to do together with her.
So, it’s not an excessive amount of of a stretch to imagine she knows when I’m pregnant, perhaps even earlier than I do. Now if she may simply discover a approach to inform me that doesn’t contain me on my arms and knees scrubbing the carpet!
