No she's not contracting that I can tell I thought she was yesterday but after a quick look online I'm wondering if they were false ones (or like a dog version of Braxton hicks).
She's slept all day today baring about 5 mins here and there. She has eaten nothing since about 9pm last night and that was only about a handful and she even spat some of it back out. She's drinking plenty. She seems to have balloned again
It is possible that she threw up, yes. Some dogs will do that before delivery. If there aren't any contractions then it wasn't a placenta letting lose, she would have already had a pup or would be actively straining by now. That sounds very normal, most of my dogs have spent the last 2-3 days sleeping almost constantly. Her not eating could mean something. Have you tried offering her something else besides kibble? You don't have to, but if she refuses something like a piece of chicken or meat as well then that's a pretty good sign she's really close.
