    Storm already craves more attention and has got very clingy. I rub her belly for her every night and her eyes go all funny where she loves it soo much

    I might have to try and get a stethoscope

    You can pick them up on Ebay, mine came with my whelping kit. Those girls do seem to enjoy those belly rubs, Molly still like them now, she still giving Tia the odd little suckle and I think it soothes her.

    You've not got long to go now :D:D

    There are quite a few litters due in the next couple of weeks :D:D

    All I've been doing the last few days is feeling fluffles belly :) not poking and prodding or anything, just little soft strokes, she seems to really enjoy it and will lay on her back for ages. I've not felt any kind of movement but sometimes there is a very slight bump here and there.

    She seems to have phases of looking rounder too, I look at her one minute and she's got a right buddha belly and then I look at her again and it's not so big :confused:
