You're so right Jojogal. It could be that the babies need more baking time and that everything is perfectly normal. I just wish the vets were more helpful. But maybe that link above will shed some light. It looks pretty good at first glance.

I did look in that thread and saw a few pics, including the one if her in the sink. So while her dog wasn’t THAT big, her dog was pregnant and your Bella looks like it too. I always hold out hope for the happy ending.

I know that's why im not convinced that the scan is 100% right. I can still feel movement. Well I'll just have to watch and wait.

Maybe. I know for a fact she's more than 52 days as that's the length of time I've had her. I've still got whelping stuff coming just incase and if I don't need to use it, parts of it can go into the first aid box.

Poodle Pregnancy | Poodle Information Center
Thank you and it has a lot of useful information. Some may argue that some of the 'symptoms' could also describe phantom pregnancies especially without a scan or x-ray to back it up. I suppose I'll wait and see.

Yes I am quite stressed as I had it all planned in my head; what I needed to get how much it'd cost, where to get things from and now after 2 inconclusive scans it's too late because by the time it gets here she would have had the pups-if theres any there.

The vet checked her over. No sign of illness or infection so she's otherwise a healthy dog. Vet wasn't sure if there was something on the scan as Bella was very stressed and wouldn't keep still and tried to bite the nurse so after 15 minutes of struggling the vet gave up. However, she did say that with her symptoms she does sound like a pregnant dog but with no image to confirm that, she's not sure. Said that I "might be feeding a phantom which makes it last longer'. except this 'phantom started the week after we got her (she would have been roughly 2-3 weeks if she's pregnant) up until now (I've had her 52 days) so work that out. Also, I upped her feed only last week but figured it was because she was hungry and only put a whelping box together 4 days ago as she was showing signs of potentially getting ready to whelp (as you guys know). I don't even know anymore.

Well at least you know she is healthy, you have a whelping box, she knows where it is so if there are puppies you should know by day 63-64. Either way we will know soon.

That's the only beneficial thing that came out of yesterday, knowing that she's in good health and hopefully we will.

I'll update you folks if/when things progress.

The other reassuring thing is that you know that she has whelped before without problems, and she will know what she is doing if she does turn out to be pregnant. We are all watching and waiting with you - I don't know whether you will be more relieved or disappointed now if it turns out to be a phantom. A huge relief in one way, that possible problems and complications are avoided, but a disappointment too when you have got ready for puppies in the home.

What'll be will be. I can't change it now and it is a relief knowing that if she is she'll know what she's doing. If she's not then oh well, one less thing to worry about. I've already told the vets that I want her spayed ASAP-they said May...again...

It is a bit worrisome but to be honest I'd rather know things that could go wrong. I think it would be naïve of me to think that just because she went through her last 2 pregnancies fine doesn't necessarily mean this one will too. I'd rather be armed with knowledge than walk into it blindly. So while the thought of something going really wrong scares me to death, it's something that I need to be aware of as much as I hate it.


One the lines of things going wrong, if she is pregnant, what signs does the dam show when something is going wrong?
I know that if she's pushing for 1hr+ then I need to get help; but other than that what do I look out for???
