My lab has an accidental pregnancy andis approx 30-35 days pregnant. About how big should her tummy be? It is huge..

She seems ok but her stomach is already about as big as a basketball.

That is Normal..I had a Choclate lab and her stomach got huge. She had about 7 puppy's. Depending on what breed you have will depends on how many pups u will have. But yes there stomach will get huge..I mean thats like a woman have quads or something, she gets huge..lol..Congrats and good Luck with the Pups..

She is fine, rest assured. She's either having a large litter of small offspring or a small litter of large offspring. Also, you may not realize it, but that's pretty far along. She should deliver in approximately 30 days. Not to be pushy or anything, but it may be a good option to spay her after her puppies arrive. Buty if you don't want to DON'T. Hope this helps!

Get her checked by a vet- prenatal care is as important in dogs as in humans! An experienced vet may also estimate how many puppies she's carrying.
Did you record the date she was bred? Dog pregnancies last approximately 63 days, so she's about halfway through. You can get her ex-rayed to determine how many puppies she's carrying after about day 45 (before that, their bones are not mineralized enough to see.) She may be having a BIG litter, 10 or more is not rare in Labs.

Nevermind what strangers on the web tell you..what does your vet say? You have taken her in by now, right? Your vet is the only one who can tell you if the pregnancy is progressing normally. It may be perfectly normal. It may be a large number of whelps. It may be an extremely large whelp. Take her to the vet.
