    Just make sure from now she is not left on her own. You will need to stay up with her now over night because labour could start any time. Dont keep taking her temperature she wont thank you for it.

    Keep a look out now for her having a dig and scratch at her bedding as that's likely that things are moving on and also panting. Then you might notice small amounts of straining as she is moving the pups in place but once she starts straining/ pushing hard if there is no pup born writhin an hour call the vet. Is she an British bulldog?

    Make sure if she goes out to toilet she's on a lead
    you don't want her scurrying under a shed or bush, to have them
    or,
    dropping a pup in the dark

    The usual signs of labour are nesting/digging, restlessness, loss of appetite/vomiting and shivering/trembling.

    Once she begins to pant, watch for her pushing/straining. If she pushes for twenty minutes with no resulting pup, ring your Vet.

    Don't wait longer than twenty minutes.

    Thank you no nesting or panting just yet just on and off deep sleeping and it's like when she gets up she don't know what to do with herself bless her! I'm keeping a close eye on her. She hasn't eaten all day no has she drunk anything all day
