Hello, I am new to this and I am not for sure if this will even get out to anybody. I have a 1year old Min. Schnauzer and today is day 63 into her pregnancy. She has had milk in her teats for over a week and a discharge from her bottom for 2wks now. I have read about their temps. dropping being a sign of whelping soon but her temps have been from 99.8 to 100.4 for the past week. I can feel and see the pups moving about in her belly. She is drinking alot and not eating much. She hasn't start nesting or scratching either. Does this sound ok? I am very excited about the new arrivals and feel that maybe I am just too impatient. Does anyone have any advice?
If she isn't nesting, or acting like she is uncomfortable, and you don't see any contractions, I wouldn't worry just yet. You can always double check with your vet. I always reccomend an x-ray to see how many they are having. 63 days is just an avg. some go longer, some earlier. good luck with your babies.
