25. Other Children Acting Up
Before you even know you’re pregnant, those around you may be able to sense it! If you have children, your little ones may be able to detect hormonal changes in their mother. They can act clingy, display bad behavior, and generally act unlike themselves.
There are many cultures, including the Navajo, that believe that a woman’s youngest child can sense she is expecting and act up because of it. Some women have even reported that their pets have detected their pregnancies. There’s no scientific proof, but cats and dogs can identify differences in your behavior, posture, mood, and body chemistry. Dogs especially may tend to become more protective of you during pregnancy, even trying to prevent your partner from getting close to you!
