    You know you're getting desperate when . . .

    you start analysing the dog's behaviour to indicate if you're close to going into labour



    I've given up trying to read my own body - strong, regular prelabour almost unabated for three days now (on top of the coming and going pre labour of the last couple of weeks) and lots of trips to the toilet (sorry for the TMI ladies!) and I don't have the slightest feeling that I'm close.

    BUT . . . today the dog literally won't get out from under my feet. DH works from home, so the pooch normally spends his time meandering between the two of us but today I can't get rid of him so I'm starting to wonder if he knows something I don't.

    Getting desperate or what???

    You poor thing. These bubbas are being stubborn! That being said if the dog can sense it we should all have one!!
    Let's hope he's right!! They do say animals can sense things, might be able to pick up a change in smell from the hormones.

    Fingers crossed!

    BAHAHAHAHA

    No…not desperate. And I only find it so amusing because that's the EXACT same thing I did my first pregnancy. Analyse the dog behaviour that is. And, not to get your hopes up, but my three dogs became my own personal leeches about 18 hours before my waters started leaking. SO your dog could be sensing something….. Or it could just be sensing your stress and tension and just generally wanting to give you comfort too….

    You never know. Dogs do have a weird way of sensing things. A friends dog was constantly under her feet as soon as she fell pregnant, and then when another friend fell pregnant, he was constantly under her feet too. If your dog is behaving differently, it could very well mean things are happening. FX for you that that's exactly what it means! Good luck

    Hun you better get a wiggle on because there is only 1 1/2 days of May left and I really want you to have three May babies.

    And you know that it is all about me hun. Plus I'm just dying to hear that your little princess is here safe and sound and her name.

    You guys are funnneeeeee. I was offline cos I was at my OB's. Got a bit of blood in my urine today, which the midwife said could be a sign that my cervix is finally starting to do something so I've got everything but my legs crossed! The girls both have the next two days off school with teachers away at a conference so we have lots of fun stuff planned to do with them so it would make sense for bubs to come tonight to spoil the plans. I can live with that ;-)

    I'd like my last May bub too Dan. Makes a nice little symmetry that OCD people like me get ridiculously happy about!
