For now make her life as predictable as possible, maybe crate her more often if she is crate trained at all. She is not mad at you, but more likely keeping a close eye on you that you interpret as "being mad" because you feel guilty (?).
Thank you for your advice.
I also forgot to mention I am five months pregnant. Someone on another forum who knew this has suggested this might be the cause. My change in smell maybe? It has just started to sink in with my husband and I. I wonder if we are giving off anxious/excited/nervous vibes...
