Kiwi is 33 days pregnant today, and she is doing well. She is very cosy and wants to stay as close as possible. At the moment she is living with her co-owners in Oslo, that takes very good care of here. Around day 42 she is moving home to stay with us for the rest of the pregnancy and puppy period.
Kiwi now wants to sleep a lot, and want shorter trips outside. She have had a period where she seems a little morning sick, but she never says no to food and she have eaten well the entire period. It is important that Kiwi gets regularly exercise, even if she rather wants to stay inside. She needs to be healthy and in good shape during the pregnancy, when the belly is getting heavier and she also need a good strength for the birth. Last weekend we met up with Kiwi and Hilde, and a couple of exiting puppy buyers and went for a walk in the forrest. The light was not so good, and it was cold outside, so belly photos was not that easy 🙂
Up until now the embryos have grown rapidly and organs are developing as the puppies are forming. By day 29, the sex organs and limbs of the puppies have developed, and the uterus is quickly filling with protective amniotic fluid. Because of the amniotic fluid rushing in, a little belly can now bee seen on Kiwi, but at the moment her teats are larger so the little belly is not easy so see. In the next week or so I think the belly will get noticeably larger.
