    Default4 weeks down, 5 to go

    OMG, next week we'll be more than half way through the wait.

    Nothing monumental going on. Grace is just mellow, clingy, getting a bit nipply, mams sagging a bit more, farting up a storm, had a little clear discharge, but she's plugging right along.

    I don't know if I am going to U/S her. I like the idea of knowing how many there are so that during the whelping I know when to be concerned. You know, told there were 8, only 3 pop out, no more contractions, time to get worried.

    I figure I'll give it a few more weeks, then talk to my mentor again and the vet and see what's normally done around here. Maybe just do an xray near the end, which seems to be what many around here do.

    This has to be one of the most exciting phases of living with a bitch. Do you change her diet/exercise while she is pregnant in preparation for the big moment and the following demanding weeks?

    Good Luck!! I can tell you are very happy!!

    She's always been in good shape so I've been just trying to keep her lean so that it's easier on her during whelping. Now that she's further along, we started on a supplement and in a few weeks slowly up her food.

    How old is she?

    Is this is the first litter you are attending at home?


    Take a look at this camera: http://72.45.12.252:9999/img/main.cg..._file=main.htm

    So you start getting in the mood... These puppies were born a couple of days ago I think.

    Oh, I'm so excited for you!!! Brandy's litter was her and my first litter too. Boy, very nervous!! ;D I hope all goes well with Grace's whelping and you and her can have a good rest when the puppies get here. On a side note: I did an ultrasound on Brandy when she was 4 weeks out. I only saw three, but thought, 'ah, I'm probably missing some.' Nope, did an x-ray just before due date, yep only three...
