Are pregnant does affectionate?

by Elinore
(Hastings ON)

Just a few hours after breeding my doe Mist with my buck Storm, I put her in her fence to get a nibble of grass. But, when I went to put her back in her hutch, she hid her face in my hair.

Is this a sign of pregnancy?

***Moderator Comment***
Has she done this before, Elinore? Affection is not usually a sign of pregnancy. To the contrary, does usually get quite cranky. They want to be left alone to prepare for the babies.

It's been a few days since you posted this she STILL affectionate, or has she become a bit ornery? If ornery, I'd say plan for a litter of babies, and don't forget the nest box on day 28.
