I hope it's a false pregnancy too and will remember her in my prayers. Our lab, Kaylee, has had false pregnancies too. Her belly and nipples swelled, she became more attached to me whereas she usually is a daddy's girl, adopted socks/toys as her babies, and even built herself nests. Let us know what the vet says.

I don't think his size is a huge issue, your girl isn't a tiny little thing but 7 mos is not an ideal age to have puppies.

They are typically fertile 10-12 days after bleeding starts, although the entire heat cycle can last up to 4 weeks.

If Romeo is not fixed, than I agree, I would assume she is pregnant. By this time, a vet can do an u/s and see if there are any puppies - do NOT let them do an xray, it is absolutely useless at this point.
I think this answered the question:

"Ok question....Juliet has been in heat for almost 3 weeks! Not bleeding any more thou but still a little swollen will it go back down or will it stay that way? Romeo is still going crazy and I've been keeping her panties on still!"

Ok, think this is it.... Gracie's first heat - I have more questions

"Keeping your panties on" does not prevent a pregnancy no matter what your mother told you.

Oh ok, I missed that thread. Timing wise, it still seems a little soon to be getting big, unless there are a ton of puppies so maybe false pregnancy although I have no experience with that.

Well, hopefully the OP won't be learning the hard way why it is a good idea to spay/neuter your pets!

I can take a pic of my girl that had a first breeding day of Oct 23 so you can 'compare' the nipple/vulva size although every girl is different!

Ok here are some 'reference' pics for you.



Her first breeding day was oct 23 (came into heat on Oct 12)

And she is definitely pregnant although her belly is not swollen (she's a bit on the thin side typically)

I used my doppler on her tonight and found at least one puppy heartbeat, which I recorded and you can watch/listen here

Do you know about pyometra? I think every female dog owner that isn't going to spay their dog before the first heat should know about it so they take it seriously if their dog starts showing possible symptoms, however vague they might seem. Closed pyometra isn't the most obvious infection, so by the time you can tell your dog is really sick, it's sometimes too late.

Here's some worthwhile reading for you: Pyometra silent killer

Stacy--the heartbeat recording is so neat!

Romeo is not fixed. He is scheduled to be fixed thou, we were going to breed. My family has bred teacup poodles for years. I think I'm just scared because she's my baby girl! She's 9 months old. This morning she was getting sick, she only got sick once but still scares me.
