Well, no update this morning! Sydney was pretty much normal all night.
Couple questions.
Her belly is very hard. Have any of you had this with your moms?
Also, how long after milk comes in do they typically give birth?
Thank you all!!!

Ok...Sydney's belly is super tense and is sticking out like a goat She is still eating and puppies are moving.
I've never had any other moms with such hard bellies...anyone have any similar stories?
Thank you all for all your help! Hopefully we're getting close!

Relax! Lol. She will have them about the time you close your eyes, she's close I would guess and toying with you. I have never had a dog give birth other then at bedtime, suppertime or when I needed to go out for something. Except the one that had pups on my bed while I was in it.

have you checked her temperature?

give her a private room or spot -- you need your rest and she needs her rest -- lot of work ahead.

Checked her temp for a few days but it upset her so since she is with me most of the time I decided not to stress her out. Do you think I should keep doing it? With past preggo moms, I didn't really see a clear temp drop...
She has a whelping box and room set up for her, and she will stay there if I'm there with her

She may feel your stress. Stress is not good for labor. This goes for humans and for animals. Stop focusing too much on her birth, it will happen! (I am a Lamaze teacher )Good example are horses who can drop a foal in a coffee brake when they are finally left alone. Don't forget to have fun with her.

a Lamaze instructor - lol - I mean , huff huff huff huff -- two kids , both Lamaze.
I had a friend from New York who was at the forefront in introducing Lamaze in the Toronto area.

what does the dog need?

she needs a private , quiet , area where she can relax and feel secure .
animals birthing remove themselves , become a bit secretive . Quiet means
that there aren't dogs barking outside or having a party indoors .

she needs an area which might have a source of heat directed on her -- brood lamp suspended
above area and appropriate distance -- even temperature zone

she needs the room warmed .

she needs a source of water available --- some like to give water and a bowl/bucket with pedialyte

put down a layer of newspapers in case she needs to void her bladder -- little dribbles when there is
pressure from a pup entering the birth canal.

good luck !
