Smile My yorkie is 7 weeks pregnant & not showing

Should be week 7 or day 49

Shes 10.6lbs
Shes active
Eats a lot like always

Around week 3 she had vomiting 2x
The male is 3-4 lbs both 2 yrs old
Ever since i think she acted pregnant she didnt eat her can food
Not even if she doesnt eat all day. I always havr to boil chicken.

So , im so anxious to see the babies
To feel them
But shes 7 weeks with like a WIDE rib cage NO big belly just mayer a tiny
Bit.
Her nipples are big but under her milk tissues are huge. Starting from the bottom ones.

I kinda felt 2 hard lil balls. But they dissapear.

Im concerned cuz my vet says shes fine & not to worry.

I know everything is fine. But why she doesnt have a huge belly.
Can i be a week off
Its her 1st time too
Maybe only 2. Cant wait

14 days to go!

It is possible she is not pregnant and is having a false pregnancy or she could of been pregnant and then absorbed her pups. The only way to know for sure is to take her to the vet and get an x-ray. Since she is a big girl it would be easy for her to be hiding one or two pups. You can usually start feeling movement from the pups about 7 to 10 days before the pups are born.

She could be having a false pregnancy, but, her not showing much doesnt mean shes not pregnant either This is Bella about 10 days before having 3 puppies and acording to my vet, the pups werent small either (I have no idea what the standard yorkie birth weight is so Im just telling you what my vet told me):

http://i583.photobucket.com/albums/s...psa7c5cc53.jpg

She just looked chunky, she never had a bulging belly that hung down or anything.I have been around pregnant yorkies before, so I was waiting for that protuding belly that you could actually see, but with Bella, you had to feel her to realise that she was pregnant.
I felt 2 "lumps" too (at around 6 weeks? Id have to look back on that post to be sure), and they seemed to emerge and disapeer too.But by around 7+ weeks we could feel light movement, then rolls etc.We were told there were only 2 pups.
I know now that all dogs carry differently and some dont have huge hard bellies..Bella didnt

Same goes for everything really.Bella didnt have any pregnancy symptoms (exept for vaginal discharge), her appetite was pretty low the entire time (still is and shes feeding her pups!), and even her labour threw me through a hoop, because I was expecting certain phases of labour, certain signs that obviously happened but she kept them to herself, so by the time we could actually see she was in labour, 15 minutes later the first pup was born

With all this, what Im saying is, unless you have an x-ray done, you are basiclly just going to be guessing, and that is so nerve racking.
Id ask for an x-ray and get rid of any shadow of doubt so that you know what to expect.It will make things alot easier for you when the birth comes around

Its normal for dams to not put on the bulk of the weight until the last two weeks. I don't know how prepared you are but here is a site that will help. Deb Jensen's site is full of information from start to finish.

Hmmmm..no, I wouldent say that it feels like hiccups.It's not a "jumping" sensation.The first movements feel like finger tips lightly touching the surface fom the inside.Then there are the rolls (later on) that feel heavier (if that makes any sense lol).
I used to sit and feel Bellas tummy for ages, and it fastinated me Right at the end, it feels like a sack full of mice rolling and kicking in there lol.

I just read a good bit on that site. Wowza! I'm glad I have no interest in breeding Cherry! (As much as I would love a house full of her puppies! Lol)

Yes, it is a very intense read and she leaves nothing to the imagination, along with photos and video. But it is a very informative site. Breeding and whelping is not for the squeamish or the faint hearted.

Breeding is the easy part compared to the whelping...the whelping part that's a little more complicated...and no, it's not for the squeemish lol.Bella had her pups laying right next to me on my bed, and beleive me when I say that I had no idea it could get so messy, and that was in a text book perfect scenario lol.
I got (god knows how) a huge chunk of amniotic sac in my hair, blood all over my hands (from cutting 3 cords) and my pj t-shirt got drenched with amniotic fluid.
Not only did I need a good shower afterwards, but I also did a full load of washing (towels, rags, reusable pee pads etc etc etc).

It's very messy, so I'd advise that you have a small stack of old towels (warm) some old fashioned diaper rags (they work wonderfully and are super absorbent, fantastic for drying and stimulating the new born puppy) and one of those big impermeable sheets to put under everything else (or puppy pads).
I was prepared, but even so, the whelping part is a huge strain for you emotionally...you worry the entire time and it doesnt go away even when the pups arrive either.Mine are 13 days old and I still havent had a full nights sleep As a momma, you'll worry.

Wow, sounds like you had quit the experience. I cant imagine having that mess in my bed or on me. I've been breeding off and on now for seven yrs. and we do things the easy way. I use the custom made whelping box that I made to fit in the cornier of our kitchen.

OP FYI / the amniotic fluids and discharge does not wash out so you should be using old items. Things that you no longer have any use for that are washable can be thrown out after the puppies are placed in their new homes. Unlit than you will be changing, washing and rewashing the bedding every few days.

Hope mamma and the pups are doing well !

I did have a whelping area ready, it was beside my bed and we had a lovley wooden whelping box made for the ocasion too.Bella wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.
When we realised she was actually in labour, we took her in there and sat with her for all of 10 minutes, but she totally freaked out and spent the entire time trying desperately to get out of the entire space.I think it was our fault, because she has always slept on our bed, even through her pregnancy, so I guess that she didnt understand why she had to go to this new "strange" place to have her puppies.
Eventually, I helped her onto my bed, which is where she actually wanted to be, and a few minutes later the first puppy came out right into my hand (I think this is how I got that peice of amniotic sac in my hair lol).

I actually got the blood and the amniotic fluid etc out of everything, I used bleach on the whites and a strong stain remover on everything else I guess that being as it all got washed imediately afterwards, it didnt stain

You can never be too much prepared. Amazing
