Less than a week to go, thank God. She’s ran out of space to expand downwards, and is now just getting wider. Not evenly, though – one side is decidedly wider than the other.
A dog’s uterus is “U” shaped, with two horns, so chances are that Delilah is carrying more puppies in one horn than she is in the other. This would explain why she’s lopsided. Poor girl. It can’t be comfortable.
Oh no! Not comfy at all! The poor little thing..
Our Frenchie was expecting “10” and she could not get comfortable at night so my husband put a small round pillow under her front legs and another under her back and she was able to breath! We only had 7 that were viable but gorgeous pups!!
I know that frenchies, like english bulldogs, can be prone to excess amniotic fluid which makes a big litter even less comfy.
We began using dandelion leaf tea to help the girls shed some of that fluid and it certainly seems to have a positive effect
Hang in there Deliliah 🙂
On the lopsided front, I once had a girl carry seven in one horn, two in the other.
Seven 7-9 ounce pups and two big one pounders.
But boy were the “little” guys scrappy and PO’d at the crowding and lousy room service they’d had. The Big girls? Lazy, fat and complacent!
