    HELP!! My little girl, Megan, is expecting 6 pups, confirmed by ultrasound. She was getting a big belly, and very large teats. However, she is 6 weeks pregnant now, and for the past few days her belly hasn't grown at all. (It is quite large already, and fairly firm). Should I be worried about re-absorbtion at this stage? She had the herpes vac at the start of her pregnancy, as a precaution, and is due the second one on the 28th, in 5 days time.

    I wouldn't expect a dogs belly to get bigger daily.

    We are not expert here. Maybe you should visit her vet to answer your questions. I hope she's okay. Please update us soon.

    So long as she is happy and healthy and does not have any discharge, I wouldn't worry.

    As @SpicyBulldog said, you wouldn't expect your bitch to carry on getting bigger on a daily basis.
