    Ok, I walk away to take care of family, come back and my thread is locked! Nothing to do with my original questions, no answers , just arguments. Lets just hope this stays on track.

    9:54 PM - temp tonight was 100.3, so we had the drop yesterday morning when it went to 98.6. Her belly is hard, pups are moving, and she had more energy tonight, Kinda spunky :)

    I noticed a now smelling stringy clear discharge coming from her. Not alot, but two strings came out. What is this? Today is day 63 from the FIRST day of breeding.

    Remember what I said in the PM's? That is why it was locked.

    Don't know what it is...I let some others know via PM that you are expecting pups hopefully they'll come. :)

    Clear discharge is normal as long as it doesn't smell bad.

    The temp thing sometimes is up and down I usually take temp 3 times a day and log it in a book and that way I can see whats normal and whats not.
    The temp will usually peek and then drop down below 99 and stay. Thats when you know its time but I have heard that cant always go by temp.

    no pups yet

    Nothing is happening yet. Like I said, yesterday day 62 temp droped to 98.6, 12 hours later is was back up and has stayed up. Today is day 63. Puppies are still real active. Her belly is hard. And then the stringy clear mucus today. Two strings came out. She's eating , no nesting, and stays close by me. :confused:

    My Girls temp dropped low like that a couple of times so I was thinking that was it but it went back up. Thats why I take temps 3 times instead of just morning and night.

    BTW if pups are still active they are fine. You are doing a great job so don't worry. You are prepared for an ER so just keep cool because she can tell your tense and that will make her tense.

    She was bred May 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th and tied every time. What do you think? I also counted from the very first day. So May 5th was day 1.

    Thats why I wouldn't worry so much just make sure the pups are active and mom is doing as OK as she can. She is really big and if she was bred that many times don't expect just 2.

    This is mine and her first time. The ultra sound showed only two. I'm hoping for more! For her sake mostly because though babies will be huge if there are just two. She is big, but the pic makes her look alot bigger, especially cuz she's laying like that.

    I just would like to pin point it sence I work full time 5 days a week!

    Sorry it got locked. I tried my hardest not to argue and at first my comments were soley on the pups but then I got annoyed. Later I tried to bring it on track again but then it was locked. Sorry that it was partly my fault.

    Anyways I know nothing about births but good luck.

    Xrays are more reliable when it comes to counting pups.

    Xrays

    Well I call my Vet tomorrow and we'll go from there. He may want to see her, not sure yet. If he does I'm going to suggest an xray. I think I'd like to take her in just to be safe. But I've kepted him posted all the way thru from her 1st exam to make sure she was in good health for breeding to her last exam to confirm she was pregnant and her ultra sound. I call them all the time with updates.

    I just thought the yesterday was it. Temp dropped = 12 to 24 hours...PUPS. But nope, hasn't happened.
