    Default pregnant?

    We are a week away from expected delivery, no signs of her being pregnant. We have not had an ultrasound performed. Shouldn't. We be seeing some swelling in her tits by now? I say we but it is not my female but a breeding I have a lot of interest in. Thoughts?

    Yes, you "should". Some females are better at "hiding" it than others. Personally, I'd have an x-ray done to verify if she's going to have any or not...sometimes there can be an issue with really small litters not generating enough hormones to induce labor.

    I could tell with Emma because her teets got a lot bigger. I also did an exray 2 weeks to to be sure.

    If she's a week out and not showing anything. I bet she missed.

    Let us know what happened next week.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    x2 I have one @ 35 days right now, it's already obvious. She missed with frozen before this, only thing I saw was nipples getting bigger, (false pregnancy) did the ultra-sound, because I wasn't sure (nothing). This time no ultra-sound but compared to last time very obvious, changes.
