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.

Yes.

Yep, sounds like it.

Okay. When you see colostrum it generally means they are very close.

Right ok. Eek. Well everything is ready for whenever things happen.
Just a quick question I know that the likely hood is that she'll start in the middle of the night but if she goes in the day is it safe for her to be moved upstairs or should I keep her in her whelping box the majority of the time?

She should stay in the room that she has become accustomed to as her area. Moving her when she's just starting labor could delay it which wouldn't be good for her or the pups. Just curious, why do you want to move her up stairs?

I've set her whelping box up in our spare room which is upstairs.
The Rasen I did this was because the only room I could put her in would be the living room except I have a 2.5 yo dd with special needs and 3 other children who are 5 and 7 so I need to keep them separate 1) so roxy doesn't get stressed and 2) because my kids arent quiet. It's also a high traffic area being the only room other than the kitchen and bathroom downstairs.
So we will start staying upstairs from tomorrow then thanks

Thanks for that i hope those vets arent near penrith or carisle then! if so i will avoid them. Moving to penrith south of Carlisle and incase those vets are in those areas i wanted to avoid them and take note which to avoid so thanks so much!
