    Not long left now till Kiera is due her puppies, She is getting bigger every day and the puppies are now very active moving around.

    She is happily popping in and out of her whelping box but still prefers to sleep beside me at night, getting up at 5am every morning to go out for a wee.

    My mentor reckons though that we will see the arrival of the pups by the end of this week :eek: Don't know what I would do without her she has been great and she is looking forward to her boy becoming a dad again.

    I have always had an amazing bond with my girl anyway but I have found that as time is going on we have an even deeper connection on a whole new level if that makes sense.

    Although we are obviously all excited that the puppies will be born soon we will be spending the coming days relaxing and conserving our energy . we shall see how that pans out ;)

    some panting tonight and staring into space, doubt very much she is going into labour but will keep my eye on her anyways as there has been no other signs yet and I think it is too early for that. Will however text my mentor should I become worried.

    maybe it just the heat:confused:

    she has had none of the other signs like a temperature drop, not really gone off her food, and no mucus discharge so not overly worried, don't wish to wake up anyone just yet if it is a false alarm.

    but if she does go into labour tonight my mentor/birthing partner can be here in 10 minutes

    very excited and looking forward to their arrival, although i do hope they stay in there for a good few more days at least. I really think it is just the heat tbh but I shall be going no where, and myself and Kiera will have to sleep down stairs from now on.

    Aw, ye it will be good for her and the pups if they stay in for a few more days!! She can rest then and get ready for the pups. :)Does she wake much at night ? I know with pregnant woman they wake alot at night sapposedly the body is getting ready to be woke up when the baby comes, well so my sister told me. So id say its pretty much the same. ?

    She has been waking up early morning around about 5am but usually just quick pee then back to bed.

    i do have a lot of sympathy for her when the pups are moving, when I was pregnant with my second son he never stopped moving he would literallt turn from head up to head down on a regular basis i hardley slept at all for the final few months, should have been a warning of things to come as he is still the same now even though he is 8:rolleyes:
