It might pay to double check with your Vet especially since she is pregnant. However, it could be that she has had a lot of changes recently - with the pregnancy and the adoption and that has caused a bit of regression. If there are no medical issues it could help to do some potty training with her. Take her out on a frequent schedule especially after meals and immediately reward her after going outside with a treat. Also, dogs have a keen sense of smell so you will probably have to triple wash the bed or consider a new one for her.
