    please just go and have her scanned then you will know if she is or is not, we cant tell most of the times from pictures.

    She is a lovely looking dog by the way :D

    It may be inconclusive, it may show pups. Wont hurt to have one done.

    I have used scan's on more than one occasion wioth my girls and they have always been correct, they even detected one of my girls having an infection in her uterus, which was a godsend as we could have lost had we not taken her for a pregnancy scan.

    take care

    We have only ever had one bitch scanned and it cost £28 with imo itsnt agreat deal!

    Get her scanned what if she is pregnant have you got all the kit you need?

    Also Getting her scanned (if pups show up) the vet can give you and idea of the size of the pups and the date she will welp!
    Or vet told us the date she will welp and she welped that exact day!!
    What im trying to say is it wont hurt to get her scanned but im sure i have already told you like 3 times to have one done! LOL

    She could be she might not be! Know one can tell you from a picture!

    You really need to get this confirmed because if she is pregnant she will need her diet changing and her meals upped

    TBH no Idon't hink she is my girl is 5 weeks this week and her nipples are bright pink and her tummy slightly distended, but as I know my girl well and know how she acts when she is pregnant, your girl may well be a very different kettle of fish if it is her first litter they don't tend to show as soon or at least it is like that with my girls.

    Ii will try and find a pic of my girls tummy at 5 weeks from her last litter.

    take care

    My girl is now 6 weeks and we had her scanned Weds which showed quite a few pups. She started eating a bit more at 5 weeks and lost her waist. Your vet should be able to scan....ours did and cost £28.
    Gonna be a busy few weeks on here if all these puppy's are born when due lol:)

    I only have experience of breeding labradors but at 5 weeks any abdominal enlargement has been minimal with just a slightly thicker waist.We tend to go by the more subtle signs,hair loss round the nipples,darkening or pinking of the skin at the base of nipples,which looking at the photos your bitch seems to have so i would be quite hopeful although a convincing phantom may also show these symptoms.Good luck.
