Wo follows us on Facebookor Instagram probably already read it. Lucy has gotten an ultrasound today and she in confirmed pregnant!
We are already closing in on the halfway point! It gives so much peace of mind to know that Lucy is pregnant. The embryo’s are now about 1,5 centimeter in size. On the drawing below you can see how they are placed inside the belly.
The hearts start to beat. So far the development has been similar to that of a human baby. From now on this is about to change. The growth is accelerating quickly now. The puppies must be ready for the world in just over 30 days. The embryos will double in size this coming week, they will then be 3 centimeter. In this week the whiskers, paws and toes will develop. De nerves are layed down and the eyes have formed. You can see more about that in the video:
Lucy is still very cuddly and lazy. If it was possible she would be asleep all day. Outside she is just as active as normal, her little belly is not in her way yet!
On Tuesday, day 26, Lucy had some slimey discharge from her vulva. I have not seen that before, but she did groom herself a lot this week.
Lucy is also weighed and measured again this week:
Omvang laatste rib
Omvang voor achterpoten
Again just a little bit of growth. The biggest growth still has to come, an added 3 centimeters is already quite something!
Lucy her nipples are clearly growing. Her pretty tuck up is gone. From week 6 and on the growth will come. I can not imagine Lucy with a big belly, but that will happen!
Since the beginning of this week her belly started to feel different, more full.
