    Question dog should be between 35-42 days pregnant,

    I think my dog should be between 35-42 days pregnant, though she does not look like she is. I have read she should be showing by now.

    Have fingers crossed that she has at least one pup there.

    Can a dog not look pregnant, but is.

    She is a Cav King Charles.

    She should be but if a small litter she may not be. In either case, a quick trip to the vet should help answer your question. Having too small a litter if she is pregnant should be checked anyway by the vet to make sure the pups are not too big for her to deliver. ( ie she might need a C section when its time).

    I don't take my girls anywhere near the vet until they are able to be xrayed after day 52. the puppy bones are not calcified until then so may not show. And xray will show positioning of the pups and if skulls and pelvis are compatible or a c section will be needed

    Unhappy

    Thanks for advice about vet. Though I am asking the question, should she be showing by now; are you supposed to be able to tell.

    some dogs are slower to show and just like people every pregnancy is different as b mom said if she has a tiny litter 1or 2 pups she may not show yet

    Did you witness the tie? I'm only asking because you seem so certain on the time frame. I agree with Micki. Have her XRayed at 52 days (at the earliest). It's too late for an ultrasound so save the cash. You may or may not be able to tell.

    As others have said, ultrasounds are only good from 28-31 or so days, so I wouldn't bother. She could be showing, but it depends on a lot of different things. How many pups, their size, her weight (she thin, normal or overweight... Easy to hide pups in fat dogs.) My girl really didn't start to show until past day 50. And then she ballooned.. There is a picture of her 1 week out on another thread. I would strongly recommend a vet visit too...
