Primrose is now over 8 weeks pregnant and from previous photos of her especially compared with the size of Smudge before having her nine pups, she hardly looks pregnant.
So today I nursed her while my husband got a couple photos of her, which shows she is most definitely pregnant. She is a nice size at this stage. You can't compare her with Smudge when pregnant, because Smudge was carrying an above average size litter for this breed, so was a lot bigger than you would generally see a Cavalier bitch at full term.
I started taking Primrose's temperature on Friday, so now waiting for that drop in temperature, that indicates that a bitch will whelp in around 24 to 48 hours.
