    I have a pregnant Dalmatian Molly. Yesterday I noticed that her belly was smaller, so I thought she had dropped her fry and they were eaten before I could catch them. But this morning her belly was back to being large & squared off like she was about to give birth. A couple more times throughout the day I noticed that she no longer looked pregnant, but now her belly is back again. What is going on?

    If her belly is smaller in the morning, my guess is she's really not pregnant or at least not that pregnant. She's probably overeating which results in the bigger belly in the evening and the smaller belly in the morning.

    At first, I thought it may have been a case of Dropsy, but then the belly would stay big, not fluctuate like its doing...

    Probably just hogging all the food
