Ella x Risky Litter

October 16, 2020
Ella's Pregnancy Calendar

Pregnancy Progression Calendar for Ella

Breeding Date:
September 10 2020


  • First day of mating.
  • 48 hours after the first mating the bitch is mated again.

Week 1 and 2


  • The spermatozoa migrate up through the cervix.
  • Spermatozoa reach the eggs in the oviducts.
  • Fertilization occurs in the oviducts which lead from the ovaries to the uterus
  • Fertilized eggs migrate down the oviducts and into the uterine horns.
  • The migration continues to enable even spacing of the embryos.
  • During this migration the eggs will grow into a blastocysts
  • The blastocysts implant in the wall of the uterus and starts forming a placenta.
  •  The blastocysts are now referred to as embryos.

 Week 3


  • The embryos will progressively be enveloped in a protective membrane that provides them with the necessary supply of nutrients.
  • By the third week after conception, the heartbeat is visible via ultrasound
  • Morning sickness might occur due to hormonal changes or stretching and distension of the uterus.
  • The Dam may appear a bit apathetic.
  • The Dam may be off her feed for a while and vomit from time to time. Feeding the Dam several meals spaced throughout the day might help.


 Week 4 and 5


  • Ears appear on the embryos around day 22 
  • The Dams nipples begin to pink enlarge.
  • The fur on the dams belly and around the nipples may become thinner.
  • An experienced person (veterinarian) can tell by careful palpation whether the dam is pregnant. It's now the best time to do this because the embryos are walnut-sized and easy to count.
  • Eyelids appear during the fifth week around day 32 with the front and hind limb buds sprouting between days 33 and 35. The skeleton develops between days 33 and 39,
  • Embryos all start out as female, those destined to be male develop the Y chromosome, with sex differentiation occurring about day 36
  • Day 35 marks the end of embryogenesis (the first phase of gestation). The organs are now all beginning to form and we now refer to the embryo as a foetus.

Week 6 


  • The Dams’ food ration is increased but excessive weight gain is avoided.
  • The claws appear during the sixth week on day 40 and the foetuses are now fully developed miniature dogs. During this foetal phase and in particular from the 40th day onwards the foetus’ weight will increase by around 75%.
  • The Dams abdomen starts to get larger.

Week 7 


  • The first hairs appear around day 45.
  • It's very easy now to feel the puppies, counting them is a bit more difficult. The Dam begins to spend a lot more time in self-grooming.
  • Her breasts become swollen.
  • Nesting behaviour starts. She may become restlessness and begin to search for a suitable place to have her puppies.
  • The whelping box is set up away from all activity and excitement.
  • The Dam now requires a diet with higher energy, protein and mineral content. She might lose her appetite during this period as her abdomen can be crowded with puppies so smaller but more frequent meals are spaced throughout the day.
  • Abdominal movement is now easily detect.

Week 8 


  • The Dam is given a bath with special care given to her nipples and vulva.
  • Hair surrounding the nipples is trimmed to allow easier access for the puppies to suckle.
  •  Towards the 50th day of gestation, the foetuses skeletons are ossified.

Week 9 


  •  An x-ray can be taken around day 57 in order to count the number of foetuses however this count can be subjective depending on several factors such as who is doing the counting, if the uterus is crowded or the x-ray is of poor quality.
  • Milky fluid may be expressed from the nipples.
  • A courtesy call is given to the Vet’s office and emergency on-call information is obtained.
  • The Dams rectal temperature is now taken each morning and evening.
  • Nesting behaviour may become more pronounced.
  • Whelping takes place 63 days from ovulation.  When ovulation date is unknown on average we calculate the whelping window to be around Day 63 to Day 67 from date of first breeding. As this is just an estimate, whelping can take place sooner or later than expected.
  • 24 to 48 hours before she is due to deliver, the dams’ rectal temperature may take a significant drop. 



  • Restlessness and anxiety may be evident as her body prepares for whelping.
  • Our vet is notified of impending whelp.
  • Clear discharge from the vulva might occur.
  • Nesting behaviour starts in earnest, panting, digging, throwing up and shivering are all normal behaviours that may be seen during stage 1 of labour.

  Expected Whelping Window: Nov 10 to Nov 15 2020
