Ultrasound during 5th week or pregnancy

During Alda’s first pregnancy, she had approximately 8 puppies inside her. This is a guess and things can change as she got closer to her due date. The puppies are about an inch long. This was Alda’s 5th week of pregnancy.  Here is an image of the ultrasound.


As it was explained to me, the round dark blobs are the puppies in their individual sacks and the white fuzzy splotch in the dark blob is the puppy.

While there we could see one of the puppy’s heart beating. It was moving fast, creating a really fuzzy spot in the center of the fuzzy splotch. Doc said a typical puppy heart beat is 180 beats per minute. Alda’s heart beat is 88 beats per minute, I just checked.
