Pregnant Bitch

I have two labs they are now 1year and 2 month old. We noticed the beginning of October that the bitch does not allow the dog close to her in terms of mating - (they were quite enjoying this for a couple of weeks)

Soon thereafter she started getting rounder around the middle section. Her teats however does not look swollen at all - it has now been almost two months and although she is bigger than the dog we can' t tell if she is pregnant or not.

What other tell tale signs can we look out for - please help as we are going away in a weeks time and don' t want a nasty surprise at the kennels.

Dear Monica

Gestation period in a bitch is 57-63 days. If its nearly 2 months you should see signs of massive enlargement and eating lots.
