No not yet. Sorry that wasn't very clear she's got puppy pads in her whelping box in preperation.
The vets not overly concerned and has said she could be like this for hours. He has said that if she hasn't progressed by Wednesday we need to start talking options but he's almost 100% she's in the very early stages of labour.
He went through the dates that I have and he's sure she's closer to her due date than not Also that her mammory glands are what he would expect to see in a dam that was very close to whelping anyway So it's just a waiting game now.

Ohh, I see what you're saying. He is correct, there is no reason to be concerned. 1st stage labor can last up to 36 hours depending on the dog, and it does tend to be longer with first time moms. All of mine have taken no longer than 14 hours in the first stage, so right now she is probably in pre-labor and not full on 1st stage. Stay very close and keep an eye on her because they can kick into full labor very quickly. Just relax and wait.

Yes, sounds like she's fine now and is very close, her cervix is probably beginning to dilate. It's when she starts pushing and doesn't start having puppies that you get concerned and go in. If she's actively pushing and not producing a puppy for 1 hour, 2 hours max, go in. If she has a puppy and there's 4 hours pass and she's not having a second puppy, go in.

Always go in sooner rather than later....The earlier you catch dystocia (stuck pups or pups that are too big to pass), the better your outcome will be for mom and the pups.

Hopefully she will have them all with no problems!

She's still the same as earlier. She's refusing to stay in her whelping box now though and keeps getting on the bed with me or trying to go under the bed. She snuck in to my hubby a minute ago when I went to get a drink.
She's now as I type started making a strange noise almost like a very quiet growl or purring sound

Hiding in dark places is a sign that she is in the 1st stage. All of my dogs wanted to hide in a dark place when they were in early labor. I suggest keeping the room as quiet as possible and keeping the light low if you're able, turn on just a nightlight or small lamp, then once she starts delivering turn the main light back on so you can see and help.

Still no puppies but she's still the same at this rate I can see me falling asleep in the middle of the main event lol
She's still making that strange noise on and off. She didn't lie down at all last night she just sat there with her head resting on the side of the whelping box.
I didn't realise that about the lights I'm wondering if I'm disturbing her as I've been keeping the bedside lamp off so its dark but turning it on to check on her if I hear some activity from her then turning it off if she's just having a circle or digging.
