Coco is Pregnant!

Today we took Coco for an ultrasound to confirm that she is in fact pregnant.  There have been signs, some subtle and some not so subtle.  She has been sleepier and even more of a shadow, following me around everywhere.  Her nipples have gotten bigger and she almost seems a little bit larger.  These signs could be attributed to my wishful thinking and could even be signs of a false pregnancy.  This past week however my normally not picky eater has developed obvious signs of morning sickness.  She hasn’t thrown up but she was not interested in eating, not even her favourite things.  By the evening her appetite would usually be back.  So when the vet asked me “do you think she is pregnant”  I was feeling pretty confident in saying “yes I sure do”.  I did want the ultrasound though,  it’s nice to know that things are going well and that there are little puppies growing inside of Coco.  It was a real thrill to see the little embryos on the screen. 

Here is a photo of one of her babies.  The black oval is the fluid filled sac and the white inside the sac is the puppy :0)
