Dog acting strange... Know something I don't?

My dog knew I was pregnant before I did.... For about a week prior to getting a bfp my dog didn't leave my side. He doesn't ever do this.
Today I'm 37+4 and my dog has been following me everywhere again.

Has anyone else any experience with their pets acting strange before you went into labour?

My dog nipped my belly a few days before we found out - it was a gentle movement as he never bites or makes any effort to. We both thought it was odd and I kept stressing about him telling me I was fat. We later think he was saying something else. Haha.

My dog knows I'm pregnant, he keeps putting his head on my belly - he never does this normally. Weirdly when I. Had my mmc he started getting really aggressive towards me - growling and snarling when I went near him. Very unlike him also. I was still carrying baby but it had died. Dogs are so clever

I was dog sitting when my daughter went into a very long protracted labour. Dog took himself off to bed at his usual time, I fell asleep n the sofa. Dog came running through and woke me up when the baby was born. Her cat wasn't fussed one way or the other.

My dog has definitely known I'm pregnant right from the start, I can't even go to the bathroom without him following me. He now rubs his head against my stomach which is quite funny because the baby then kicks him.

Both of mine have known from day one. As it's progressed (now 15+6) our boy dog has become my absolute best bud, he has to be sat touching me which he never did really before. Girl dog (who is my baby, used to be just me and her) has gone off me distinctly, she's jealous. I'm sure they can smell the hormone changes.

Yea my dog knew I was pregnant before I did. It's crazy.
Did anyone who went into labour naturally experience their dog acting strange?
