    Digging is a sign that labour has started. Her stomach could feel different as the pups are moved into position to be born. Hope all goes well.

    I'll probably get shot down in flames but

    leave her alone,stop prodding and pushing her around - if she is ready she will give birth but she wont if she isn't settled

    sounds like she is due and things are moving but she needs to be confident that her babies aren't in danger before she gives birth and all the fiddling will be upsetting her, she's in her whelping area, you are there - have a cup of tea and le her do her stuff

    I would say that is the drop you are looking for.. you should see puppies in the next 24 hours

    Her temp needs to go lower not higher.. i would do it one more time if she will let you.. her temp started at 98 and went down to 96? thats a good drop
