I think it is time

Katie is due to have her litter anytime now. Her due date is tomorrow or Firday for sure. However today she is acting like she is in labor. She has been going in and out of the whelping box and digging. She is breathing harder and shaking some at times. Also she is crying out very softly on and off during the day. I took her temp, this am and it was 99.5 which is what she seem's to usualy run. I have been taking it for over a week now to be sure of her normal. Yesterday it did drop some but back up today. Is she in the early stages of labor do you think? I haven't had a litter before so any help would be appreciated.

Judy sure sounds like she's getting ready - I've heard that the temp will pop back up right before labor. Sounds like you're having puppies in the next 24 hours. Good luck and here's to an easy whelping.

I don't have any advice but I am sending my good wishes to you and to Katie for an unventful delivery, healthy puppies and a quick recovery. We'll want pictures of the little ones of course.

Thank all of you for the good vibes. She is constantly trembleing now. However was the first one in line for treat time just now. Go figure. Girl can't live without her treat's. We all took a short nap just in case it is going to be a long night. LOL. Vet is on stand by of course. I am reading like crazy what to expect and hope all goes as good as it say's in the book's. And if I can figure out how to post a picture along with my word's I will do that asap.

Judy - can the breeder that you got your Havs from help you or do you know someone who can mentor you by phone? I'm sure I'm just a worry wart but I don't like to hear about the trembling - would you check with your vet just to be on the safe side? Do you have the recipe for mother's pudding? I'm just always so concerned with eclampsia (spelling?)
