I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and I've known for 4 weeks now and I've noticed lately that sofia (our puppy) acts very defensive when I give her commands and she will bark at me, she also tends to howl when I leave the room/house. Im not sure if this is normal or how to address this issue. Im not sure how to go about this with her, any advice?
How old is Sofia? She may be going through those puppy "gowing pains"...they want to be boss. Keep consistant with your training.

I read your previous post - your pup is like 5 ish months? While dogs CAN tell you are pregnant, I don't necessarily believe that is why she is acting up. Probably just a boost of puppy antics. Anti-up the training (daily, short sessions but a few throughout the day) and exercise.
