    hi - would you always expect to see movement at around day 53? I haven’t seen or felt anything and can’t hear anything with stethoscope. Are dopplers any good? She was scanned at day 44 and 5 seen. She hasn’t grown much since but is quite firm to touch.
    Thanks

    Just leave her be, there really isn't any need to keep 'checking' on her. If you've had her scanned then you know the pups are there. The stomach wall hardens during the third trimester and then the pups begin to move down the birth canal and her shape changes. If you are worried that your dog isn't well then call the vet, if not then my opinion is leave her be, she'll be struggling during the last week as it is.

    Sometimes you can see movement when the bitch is asleep in front of a fire or something ie warm and totally relaxed. Not seeing movement is nothing to worry about though.

    I don't recall ever seeing movement in my pregnant bitches.

    As advised above, relax and let her be. You know she's in pup, so nature will take it's course.
