And she's moved all the puppy pads back down to 1 end. Lol
Wow, she's pretty big. Probably got more than 3 pups in there. The time is near, stay close!

Please ask if you have any questions or need help once she begins labor.

She is big. I think that's one of the reasons she just lying around cos she can barely move bless her even changing to a comfier spot is a mission for her at the moment she even got stuck on her back earlier on.
I will bare that in mind thank u.

I feel for her! My current foster was pregnant with 13 pups, so as I'm sure you can imagine walking wasn't something that came easy! Changing position constantly is very normal. Dogs generally start getting really uncomfortable about a week before they deliver, but every dog is different.

Here's what Belle looked like 2 days before she whelped.

Yes, she is mostly Pitbull from what we know. We believe that there's a bit of hound in there as well. If you want to see the whole story about her and the pups, just go over to my thread here: https://www.dogforum.com/general-dog-...foster-255978/

You mentioned that her temperature was a little low when you were at the Vet. Quite often a drop in temperature is an indication that the pups are due really soon. I have found that quite often the day or so before they whelp, they have what we have called "the long sleep" as they are storing up their energy to have the pups. Some females do not get very big milk bags till the puppies arrive.

Yeah so I think the pups might come soon. Roxy's pacing around the house sniffing up a storm and won't settle. I had to pop to the garage earlier, i was only gone 15 mins but hubby said she sat by the front door the whole time shaking like a leaf. She's got a bee in her bonnet about something.
So i'm sat here wondering if I should go to sleep and get as much rest as possible or if I should stay up for a bit and keep an eye on her.

I don't know what her temp was the vet just said it was a little low.
It's hard to tell on the photos but when she's waddling around her 2 back milk bags look huge she's starting to look like a dairy cow.
I've just noticed that her tummy is almost completely bald now although I shouldn't be suprised as my sofa used to be black lol I'm having to vacuum it twice a day.

Sounds like she may very well be in the 1st stage of labor. Shaking is often a sign of it. How is she acting right now, is she still shaking?

That all sounds normal. Mothers do shed their hair so the pups have an easier time nursing.
