My word, is it because this is my females first litter that she just seems sooooo ahead of the pregnancy??? She is in her 4th week, yet is showing all the signs of 5th and sixth weeks. The nesting, loving, her teats look like giant upside down funnels, filling w/ milk (not espressing yet thank the LORD) her nipples look like fingers and-her "pooty" well, that just looks disgusting it is so swollen! My peke follows her around like he honestly thinks he is the daddy or something. It is hilarious, and unreal. I hope that theses signs are not signs of a huge litter....Are they? She has 9 nipples. She is showing, and waddley, and I even felt the puppies last night! I am not good at it and only felt I think 2. Someone with experience help??This is my first litter, and I wasn't expecting her to react the way she has.I have been around friends having pups, but they were a different breed and wasn't so hands on.
