March was a pretty big month around here! First with Nala’s 3rd birthday, followed by an ultrasound which confirmed that she is pregnant!!! Needless to say that we are super excited. Dogs’ pregnancy lasts about 63 days (give or take a day or two), so that puts her due date to April 3. Not much changed around here really initially- we still focus on keeping fit and getting out to exercise about 5km per day. Healthy mommas are more likely to have uncomplicated pregnancies, smooth deliveries, and bounce back quicker afterwards. So we hit the trails and watch her belly grow. In the last week of pregnancy, Nala started slowing down a bit, so neighbourhood meanders replaced trail walks. An x-ray done in the last week of pregnancy revealed quite a full belly of puppies! It is helpful to know how many we are expecting so that no one is left behind ๐Ÿ˜‰ The whelping box and area are stocked and ready – now we wait!!!!
