This is something different to talk about. I have a son he will be 2 next month. He knows if he sees babies what they are and will say "baby".
One night I was sitting on the couch and he comes over and presses down on my belly and says "baby"
Now I know I have not acted towards him anything about it because I didn't think he would even put the two together. Is this just a coincidence, my mother said he knows. I am not showing I never say I have a baby in my belly because, like I said before why would he even know what I was talking about. And if he does know how? I know kids are smarter than adults at this age, but I also think that would be something he would have had to experience before.

he could have heard you talking about it. They hear everything and understand a lot more than we give them credit for.

My daughter was constantly asking me if I had a baby in my belly from about 6 weeks on. I kept telling her we don't know yet, we have to wait for the DR to tell us. I know that isn't being honest but if I had a m/c I did not want her to go through what she went through when we lost Cassie. We eventually told her after the amnio. My son doesn't seem to care much. Although he has started telling me HE is the baby so I think he may be feeling like he will be displaced soon.

I totally believe that kids know. Not all, but many. I guess that it COULD be a coincidence, but if he's never done that before, he may have picked up on it.

With my first pregnancy, I was with my mom when implantation occurred. I got back home at about 5 1/2 weeks. I hadn't said anything to anyone and hadn't confirmed the pregnancy yet. A friend, 19 y.o. male, came to visit and instantly asked, "Are you pregnant?" I laughed and said, "Not that I know of." He said, "Oh...I think you are. You smell pregnant." I had showered that morning, but knew that he always knew when women had their periods, etc. Animals seem to know, too. I hope this isn't gross, but I wonder if kids in ANY way understand it that way...

My five year old nephew asked me the other night where my baby was... when the last time it was mentioned around him was probably Christmas!! He just piped up out of nowhere, asking about the baby, and his mom kind of looked at him weird and pointed to my stomach. It was cute. Weird, too, how he could remember so well, but my ten year old cousin forgot a looong time ago!

Kids have something in them that they just know. My DD will be 3 in May and she has told me I was PG every time before I told her or even knew my self and with each one she has known what the sex of the baby was. Maybe it was all just luck but I find it to be very stang that she has been right every time.
