20 photos of dogs eagerly waiting for the baby to arrive

Whether it's new furniture or a change to the layout in the room, dogs quickly recognize that something is different in their environment. That’s because our four-legged friends can sense change, which is also why they’re often the first ones to realize that their owner is pregnant — even if there's no way of seeing it yet.

Our loyal doggies get increasingly excited when they see their beloved owner's belly grow. As the due date slowly approaches, the waiting can even get a little too much for some of our impatient pooches. As you'll see, 40 weeks can be a very long time not just for couples, but also for their dogs...
