Pregnancy Update 7 & 8 weeks {Texas Husky Breeder}

I want to first say thank you for all you patience. I am sorry if I get behind with updates and replying. If you are ever left waiting for a reply, please feel free to message me on facebook to remind me.  With work, kids, house, huskies, etc, it can get hectic and I can be forgetful. I am trying to work as often as I can because I do not work close to due dates to ensure I am home for delivery and then I limit my working when pups get older to make sure they get proper supervision.

Alright so here we go…. we are getting closer guys!  I hope you are as excited as we are. Both litters have a lot of interest, and while I appreciate folks wanting to put down deposits now, to be safe, I only take 2 deposits per litter.  So if you are seriously interested in a pup from either litter, please fill out and email me an application (located on this site), watch the facebook page for updates, and contact me after I post that I am taking deposits.  Please understand your deposit reserves your spot in line and not a certain color, gender, etc.

Amara: Week 8

*Dam spends a lot more time grooming herself.

*Breasts become swollen as her milk forms.

*Nesting begins.

*Dam may not have a big appetite.

*You can feel puppies move now.

*Introduce whelping box (area).

Autumn; Week 7

*May shred paper, blankets, or bedding (nesting).

*May become irratable.

*Definite abdominal enlargement.

*Abdomen hair will start shedding.

 

Amara has a nice size baby belly, I am checking daily and should be able to start feeling the pups move this week. She is spending a lot of time in her crate (going in by herself) so I will be getting her room set up this week and we will be getting her use to the whelping pool, hoping she prefers that over the crate. 😀

Autumn has a baby belly as well and I feel that she will have a larger litter this time around. Last time she had 4, she feels bigger already and still has 3 weeks to go. Autumn is very lovey to me and wants to be by my side.  But she is cranky with Amara and the younger girls. Moody is an understatement.  She went thought this last time and much of the crankiness ended after the pups were born. 😀

If you have any questions, please feel free to email or message me.

Here is what the calendar says to expect in the coming week.

Pregnancy update (5 and 6 weeks): {Texas Siberian Husky Breeder}

Good morning everyone.  I am finally back to using our blog. I hope to use it more often, and documenting Amara and Autumn’s pregnancies will be much easier this way.  We are finally seeing some signs indicating pregnancy in both girls! Before I begin, please remember due dates are estimates. We are basing these on 63 days past first tie. But this can change depending on which tie “took”.  Females are not always ovulating at first tie.  For example, Nikita always whelped a week past her due date. So we knew she ovulated late in her cycle.  Amara and Autumn both whelped within 24 hours of their due date last time, and we are hoping that is the case this time.  But you cant always predict nature.

Amara: Estimated Due Date, Oct 31.  6th week of pregnancy.  Here is some of the things the calendar says happens in the 6th week:

*During the last several weeks, your dogs nutritional needs nearly double.

*Increase water

*Enlargement of mammary glands as nipple darken and enlarge.

*There may be some clear fluid discharge from the vulva. This is normal.

We are feeding Amara small portions, 2-3 times a day. She wants lots of loves and cuddles.  She is easily irritated by the younger pups, so we are giving her some space. We have noticed a little belly starting to show.

Autumn: Estimated Due Date, Nov 7th.  5th week of pregnancy.  Here is some of the things the calendar says happens in the 5th week:

*Development of toes,whiskers buds, and claws.

*Eyes now close and gender can be determined.

*The puppies are not considered fully developed miniature dogs.

*She may be showing

Autumn, is having trouble finishing her dinner so we are feeding her small portions, 2-3 times a day as well. She is moody, playful one minute and annoyed the next. We are giving her her own space and she is spending a lot of time with Tyrion or with me.
