Hi im new here so if this topic is on the wrong forum im sorry.. i am looking for some answer that can help me not being so much confused :p
note, i live in philippines and closest scan for dogs are 6hrs away from where i live, and if she is pregnant i dont want to stress her on this trip, thats why i dont do scans. please respect that..
My husky mated feb 15, 16 and 18..so if counting from first mating she should be on day 59 today..and from last mating she should be day 56 today..
she had a silent heat in february..
Now here's the thing..i dont think She look pregnant at all?..Her former owner who i bought her from, told me that Savana (my husky) always have between 2-4 puppies only per litter. (she have had 3 litters in his possession).
so i know where the average of puppies lays between , the only thing thats different is that her teats are little swollen and pinkish, and she started to whine now and then 5 days ago (like 4-6 seconds every 3-4hrs).
and sometimes she dont want to eat her food (i divided 2 main meals into 4 meals as she should eat lesser more often) , sometimes she eats sometimes she dont..
she lays on her side and sleep a lot more than before, OR she might just be tired? i dont do heavy exercise with her, more than walking in leash few minutes due to soon time of whelping if pregnant..in some pictures she looks pregnant, some she looks normal/fat..
it might just be a small litter and thats fine with me. But i dont feel any movements at all until now and that makes me confused ..i did see something similar to a big kick on her rib cage when she was laying down and i tried to feel movements, but maybe thats just a nerve or twinch when she was sleeping? i tried to feel again but i dont know if it was her breathing or a puppy movement.. im not sure, im so confused..
I own both Dam and sire, and both has pedigree, so no one will "attack" me about it , just in case :p as i saw on most topics online that people getting upset if breed without pedigrees .. i just want to know if it might still be possible that my husky might still be pregnant even if no big tummy , and maybe just have 1-2 puppies? ..
hope for some answers that can try help me understand more about this pregnancy as this have never happen to me before..TIA

My vet is 10mins away and they do cesarian but they dont have ultrasound or xray here..this is philippines, they barely use those stuff..but the closest scans are 6hrs away..im starting to think she isnt pregnant as no milk is in yet and she is day 60now from first stud and day 57 from last stud.. And tummy is not big except the ribcage but so many is saying they dont carry puppies in the ribs so i think she isnt pregnant and thats ok :) her old owner checked her 10 days ago and he told me its positive, maybe 1-3 puppies so i thought she was but turned out opposit :) but its ok, thats life :)

You might want try using the female's temperature to try and determine when she'll start labor--take her temperature today and record it, then do it again tomorrow at the same time of day, and continue to do so daily. In theory, about 12 hours before starting labor, a dog's body temperature will drop below 100 degrees F/38 degrees C. Unfortunately, it seems that a great many females never read that part of the textbook, and you never catch that drop in temperature. It's worth a shot, though.
Good luck with her; hopefully she's either pregnant with a small litter and will have them without any complications, or she's not pregnant and has just been fooling you to get extra food. You should know for sure in the next four to five days.
