Dog regression due to my being pregnant?

Is this a thing? Could this be the reason my dogs behaviour has changed.

He's almost 8years old and we've had him since a pup. I was pregnant when we first got him and all was as well as you'd expect. House trained perfectly etc obviously with the odd extremely rare exception- no real issues.

Now I'm pregnant again and this week for some unknown reason he has done the number 2 in the house twice. The first time I accepted it could have just been an urgent accident when no one was home. The second being this morning everyone was home and he didn't do his usual nudge nudge I need to go out bit. And it wasn't just a little squeeze it out for relief type - it was huge and normally if he were to have the odd accident it would be by the back door or 'hidden'.

My question is do you think this is something to worry about or could it just be his way of reacting to me being pregnant??

Just curios if others think this is possible or it's his age or if we need to make a visit to the vets??

Any help appreciated smile

My dog is behaving strangely. She's acting depressed. I'm 38 wks pregnant, wondering if she can sense something is happening/ changing ??

Is he entire? My old dog got very funny with me when I was pregnant. Went from being good as gold to misbehaving, ignoring my commands and even growling at me. General advice from trainer etc was to neuter him and see if it helped. It did thank goodness, he went back to being his lovely self.

Yea he's been neutered already years ago.

Could try the vet, might be able to suggest a remedy.
