Yes she's quite big she looks like she swallowed a barrel lol. She's struggling to move around more today but I think she'd rather just sleep bless her.
I think she might be moving in to 8 weeks as she's started digging around a bit she's shredding like crazy and she's had a bit of milk come out this morning.
Okay, good. Hopefully that means nothing is wrong. One thing that I have noticed with my dogs is when their mucus changes to a slightly yellowish color, then pups should be there within 2 days or less. My first foster went into labor 4 hours after I saw the yellowish mucus, and my current one went into labor 2 days after I saw it. Another possible sign is when their mucus discharge gets really heavy.
Yep, she sounds like she's getting close! Nesting generally begins anywhere from a week to a few days before. What color was the milk, just normal white or a pearl color?
Oh right so like a mucus plug being lost?
She's been asleep all day today and hasn't finished her lunch. So I think she might be getting close too.
It was more of a not quite white more like a diluted white. Tbh it looked like more like colostrum than actual milk. Her milk ducts are quite noticeable now.
