Lucy's pregnancy progress
It has been one week since we found out Lucy is pregnant. Still letting it sink in. lol
On days 36 - 42, pups continue to grow and pigmentation develops. The eyes now have lids and remain sealed until approximately 12-14 days after birth. Your dog is noticeably more uncomfortable at this point. She may vomit occasionally due to the extra pressure against her stomach. This is normal.
She has started snoring when she sleeps, has some occasional gas and grunts more than usual. Maybe from the puppies pushing against her diaphragm. 🤷♀️ She also wants to eat more, that is a big win for me! She is normally a picky eater and just does not eat a lot. I love seeing her with more weight.
We are enjoying every moment of this journey and spoiling Lucy as much as we can.
According to our puppy calculator app - Lucy's due date is March 16th.
