Pregnant PomChi with 98.2 temp

So I am fostering a little PomChi that I just got yesterday. She was in the back of a car for over 100 miles but didn't seem to stressed and has settled in nicely. I've birthed out four dogs but they've all been big breeds - this is my first small breed. I've been taking her temp since yesterday.

10.23 / 3pm - 100.5
10.23 / 5pm - 99.9
10.24 / 7am - 98.7
10.24 / 11am - 98.2

She paces slightly but is mostly just sleeping. Last night she was panting and this morning she was also but for the past hour she has now just be sleeping. She has a ton of milk, babies were active yesterday and today I haven't seen or felt A LOT of movement but I have felt some. Oh, and she is 6-8 years old. She has eaten two bowls of food and drinks a lot of water... Acts like a normal dog but I am told by the vet were her temp drops below 98.8 she will have pups. Hers doesn't rise, it just keeps dropping.

I have her away from the other dogs in a room with lots of blankets. I haven't seen her nest like the others did - I had one dog who tried having her pups in a dirty clothes basket.

Just want to know if I should be watching for any other signs?

what I can think of, if she is in labor for a lenghty period of time, she may be having trouble, then I would call the vet and take her in.
