Default Question on pregnancy

My lab/ pit girl is approximately 42 days pregnant by a rather big Rottweiler, she went to the vet 2 weeks ago and he couldn't deter main if she was pregnant.
Today for the first time I could feel rather large bumps in her belly, which I know are the pups.
She gets x rays on the 15th, a week before delivery.
My question is, she is really tight and the pups seem large by feel, should I get her an x ray sooner in case they are big for her or am I over reacting. She is a strong girl, but was the smallest of her litter and dad is 20 lbs more than she is?

Any advice?
Again I'm all for spaying and I was waiting until she was out of heat to have it done but while away on vacation my male somehow got to her.
The good news is all of her pups have homes already.
Thank you

It is better to wait and get her x-rayed closer to whelping because if you do it too early, their skeletons do not show up as well. They can determine then how big the pups are and how many although the count is not always accurate.

Thank you. I was just concerned for her safety because of the likelihood the pups will be large.

Please keep us updated. It sounds like the pups will be rather large.
