Default Yorkie pups due anytime

My yorkie is at day 59. Her temp dropped from 100.8 to 99.8 this morning, but has gone back up to 100.4. She is pacing & panting continuously, which makes me think she may be in stage 2, but the temp confuses me. Could she really be stage 2 with the temp going backup?

the temp will change. some say it will drop and stay low but as my experience it isnt always the case. i would say she would probably have them tomorrow or the next day. when she goes and hides for a long period of time or goes without food or water or starts panting a lot then they are coming. is this your first litter??

here is some info you might find usefull
"Begin taking her temperature rectally twice a day.
The normal dog temperature is about 100.3F - 101.3F.
It will normally drop to about 98. degrees F 8 - 24 hours before the onset of labour and she will refuse to eat or drink anything.
"
'The day her temperature drops, she will refuse food and drink.
This is normal.
Her instinct is telling her that she needs to 'fast' before the big event.

It would be good to put a plain buckle collar on her - you may need it later on.
Remove your rings if they have raised settings and make sure your nails are trimmed short, cleaned and filed smooth.

In the first stage, she will rest a lot and occasionally go out to urinate and defecate.
As the time passes, she will get more restless and begin paying a lot of attention to her vulva - cleaning it frequently.
You will be able to feel the contractions if you lay your palm on her side.
They will first occur about every 10 minutes and will last about 30 seconds.
They are not hurting her, but she will need to go out more often to pass her urine and her bowel movements will get quite loose.


The Delivery
She will progress into the second stage - where you can actually see the contractions.
They occur about every 8 - 10 minutes. These are not the "pushing" contractions, but she may begin panting.

At this point, you should move her to the whelping box that has the old sheets, papers and towels ready for her to make her 'nest'.
She will pant and be obviously apprehensive.
She may begin tearing up the bedding and paper, getting up and lying down frequently.
She will want comfort from you and will be obviously reassured by your presence.

The contractions will become longer in duration and get closer to-gether.
When she is almost at the next stage, the contractions will be occurring about every minute and lasting almost the whole minute.

The 3rd stage - the actual whelping stage - is immediately preceded by her tail lifting with each contraction.
She may cry with pain and will be obviously worried and apprehensive.
She will have one contraction after the other.

You must reassure her that all is well and that you are there to comfort her.
Just before the delivery, the first puppy can be felt as a hard bulge in the space between the rectal opening and the vagina.
You'll then have a squirt of water - it may be blood-streaked or green-tinged but is most often quite clear - come out of the vagina.
This is a lubricating fluid that precedes the pup which will then be expelled.

The pup may emerge slowly, with each contraction or it may 'shoot' out quickly.

Very often the first puppy is a "breech" presentation and is often a large sized one which makes the first delivery difficult for her.

If it is a prolonged delivery it would be helpful for you to grasp the part of the exposed body to keep it from going back up into the bitch, until the birthing is complete. "

Yes this is our first litter. She has been panting a lot the last hour or so, but she hides alot all the time anyway. She is still nibbling & drinking. but doesn't stay still for very long and can't get comfortable. So she is confusing all of us as she is panting & pacing, but still eating & drinking

sometimes hard, sometimes not so hard. she appears to be drinking alot here about the last 30 minutes, and I just noticed that it looks like she has just had a small mucus discharge as well. Yes we have a box ready, as well as the heating pad to help keep pups warm during the deliveries.

when it becomes time she will either come get you or just go to the whelping box on her own. Sometimes the will lose their mucus plug hours before and sometimes it can be days.

Ok, Thanks for the advice. Hopefully she won't wait till the middle of the night, but that's my luck she will.

I assisted a whelp once and the bitch only dropped .5 degrees prior to labor, so yeah, I'd say it's not completely unheard of.
