2yo increasingly clingy - pregnancy related? How to help?

My previously independent 2.2yo has become increasingly focused on me since my bump has been visible (I'm 25 wks). She always wants me, over DH, and this morning cried when DH left her with the childminder (who she's always loved and is amazing - she's been going there for over a year and hasn't cried at drop off since her first couple of days there). Previously she pretty much always wanted DH over me, so this is all quite new.

How can I help her feel secure and confident again? We got a book about the 'house in mummy's tummy', but that hasn't helped. We talk about the new baby a bit, but not overdoing it (she knows there's a baby in my tummy).
