Default Updates on Galina

I thought this might be helpful to someone that maybe hasn't had a litter to know the normal changes in a bitch in whelp ( pregnant).
We got our first signs this morning. I have noticed over the years a change that occurs in 3-5 days. In artifical insemination, obviously it hit sooner with the sperm inplanted right into the uterus.
The first sign occurs in the 3-5 days as I said. Especially in a " colored dog" the color of the teats ( ie breast) at the very tip nipple will change colors. In Galina, as seen in the video I posted- she had pink nipples. Today- they are black on the tips. This occured a few vets said, because of the change and the beginning of the " wax" to prepare for nursing. This changes quickly- then stalls out until the nipples start to grow in later part of pregnancy.
We were pretty excited about this today. She woke up with all having a black tips. Its the first sign she is probably pregnant. Also- the bleeding has really slowed down today. That is another sign that the cervix is closing.
IN a natural breeding, this step usually takes near 5 days, but it takes normally two days for the sperm to travel.. video I mean- Galina is on her back half way through with a totally white tummy/pink http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWfRFveoEto

Congratulations!

Very different than cats! Cats "pink-up" at about 2 weeks (never go black) but it is almost as common for them to pink-up with false pregnancy as it is a real one.
