The Nine Week Cycle Of A Puppy’s Gestation Has Never Been This Cute

We know we know, it's Father's Day not Children's Day! But let's face it, you can't have one without the other, so let's take a look at just how moms and dads become moms and dads! The average gestational cycle of a puppy from conception to birth is 9 weeks. First, the romance... kelly2 We're all adults here right? So we know about the birds and the bees? Cool. Moving on. Week One kelly1 After the egg has been fertilized, the soon-to-be mother may experience mood swings as hormones fluctuate within her body, and she may even become more affectionate. Week Two kelly3 The fertilized egg then travels into the uterus where it will be implanted for the duration of development. Week Three kelly4 Internally, the embryo begins to develop. Externally, her mammaries begin to swell and her appetite begins to change. Week Four kelly5 This period sees the development of the spinal cord and facial features! Week Five kelly6 Now the limbs develop from stubby nubs to actual legs! Week Six kelly7 In this period, the puppy's skin begins to retain pigment and eyelids grow (but they can't open them yet!). Week Seven kelly8 Now the puppies have grown so big you could feel them kick! Week Eight kelly9 FUR!!! Week Nine kelly10 Now ready for birth, the pups may stay very still in the womb to rest up for the main event. Congratulations! kelly11 And that's the miracle of life, folks. Happy Mother's Day!!!
