Veerle is pregnant! That is no longer news. But we are still happy! After her date with Bram van Rubensdael (in daily life Flynn) on good Friday, then the big moment was on Monday 20 May; The ultrasound showed us that Good Friday indeed turned out to be a good Friday!
Now everyone knows the story of the flowers and the bees. And the result is that the bees have “kissed” the flowers. Then the big, long wait begins. Personally, I think it is a loss that there is not such a stick for dogs that, once it comes in contact with urine from a covered bitch, indicating whether she is pregnant or not, waiting two minutes is better for my nerves than four weeks.
The first four weeks I find the most exciting. If she did .. or wouldn’t she? After all, the first symptoms of a pregnancy are the same as a possible sham. Did she always have that big appetite? Is she really sleeping anymore? You almost doubt your knowledge. I didn’t read all the books for nothing, and what about that study? And then she also vomits in the third week. Is that because the embryos start to implant themselves in the womb? Because of the tension and hormones in the womb, she can feel nauseous. Would she be pregnant or did she just eat something wrong? Oh, all those symptoms that can go two ways. Are those four weeks not over yet?
And then, at the beginning of the fourth week after that good Friday, I saw that clear separation. Hoera!! This is a sign of gestation. This does not occur with a sham. Would she then? Do not cheer to early. In a few cases this also occurs with a female who turns out not to be pregnant. Sometimes too much knowledge is also not good for your nerves.
That 20th of May came as a liberation for my agitated nerves. I knew it! Easy to talk afterwards when you see the embryos float wonderfully on the ultrasound. Don’t doubt myself again next time? But still, next time I have it again. No female is the same.
And Veerle? He has absolutely no problems with nerves or doubts. She just does it! She is now 6 weeks pregnant. And so far it is a pregnancy according to the book. She has a belly that clearly shows that puppies are on the way. Miniature dogs, now almost 5 cm tall. From now on the most important task; grow and grow again.
