Lucy Week Four
On days 22 to 28, the fetuses can be felt in the uterine horns around day 28, and can also be seen by ultrasound. The spinal cords are developing, and the fetuses are beginning to grow facial features. Her uterus will shortly fill with fluids to protect the puppies that are the size of a hazelnut. After this, it will be weeks until the puppies can be felt again. Also, your dog's appetite will likely increase, so offer her more of her food.
And Lucy has been eating more.
Next week we go for an ultrasound. I seriously can not wait.
