    Very very heavily pregnant sow help.

    Hey guys.
    My sow Emma is extremely close to labor and i'm so worried about her
    because this is her 3rd litter. (I BOUGHT HER PREGNANT TWO WEEKS AGO FULLY AWARE ONLY BECAUSE I WANTED HER TO HAVE A GOOD HOME NOT GO TO SOMEONE WHO WILL MISTREAT HER).
    Anyway back to the point.
    She is eating and drinking like crazy and not moving much at all.
    Last night when i was sitting with her (about 13 hours ago) she ran around squealing a few times then circled a little spot in the corner about 15-25 times then went to her food again. She's laying down all the time, i can hear and see the pups in her big belly, her vagina is swollen/nipples longer AND her pelvis is seperated about an inch.
    How long do you guys think birth is from? I'm so worried about my babygirl.Click image for larger version.

    Labor usually comes within 48 hours of pelvic separation, but it can take up to a week or so.

    That's what i'm confused about her pelvis began seperating about 4 days ago, today being the 5th. i'm assuming she's very close though.

    Goodness she is adorable! I love her little extra toe. Does she have an extra toe on each back foot or just one?

    I can't wait to see her babies.

    Yeah she does
    She's such a beautiful girl, so placid and loving so i hope the pups turn out like her.
    Also don't worry guy's i have the money and space for the babies and i will NOT be giving them to a pet store/breeder etc. I want the best for her and her pups.

    She is circling the same place sticking her head near her legs (front and back).
    Hopefully soon.

    Super cute piggy! My momma just gave birth last week. She was doing the same thing as yours is about a week before she finally gave birth. I was super worried about her at first and stayed with her night and day. Then, go figure, the one day I left her alone she had her babies! Yours should be coming soon! Good luck!
