Hello, this is Dr. RB;) The first signs of pregnancy can include mammary enlargement, abdomen that becomes distended and appetite may also gradually increase. If you know your dog was covered by a male, you should check you timeline. Entire gestation in dogs is about 63 days from breeding to birth. You may start seeing signs about 2 weeks after she was bred. It is difficult, however, to distinguish this from "false pregnancy" will create all of these signs due to a hormonal imbalance but not from pregnancy. I hope this helps:)
