No, but do in the majority of cases.

It does in many cases, but you should also be looking for other signs, nesting, refusal of food, restlessness, panting.

Usually it will fluctuate up and down and up and down, gradually getting lower. Then it will usually stay low for a number of hours, maybe 12 or more, before climbing up to around 100 or so before whelping actually begins.

It sounds like you are getting closer.

Agree with watching all the signs.

For my dogs, that drastic drop would mean they will start to whelp in the next 24 hours.
