If you know your dog was not with a male during her heat cycle then this may be a false pregnancy which you can read about here

If your dog may have been with an intact male during her heat cycle then she is likely pregnant.
This site goes over signs your dog is pregnant

But your vet may be able to do a relaxin test or palpate or x-ray her and tell you for sure.
Hope this helps you!
