It depends. Some dogs start lactating early, some only an hr. or so before birth. You just never know until she does it.

Here is some links so you can read up while you await the new arrival.
Milk comes in early up to a week on some girls.
So stay calm.
And read up all you can for the stages she will go thru it does help so much to have this information to read.
Looking forward to updates.
Here is the links for you.

My momma dog started lactating about a week before her liter whelped. She has done this with every liter, too. When I bred Poms 2 of our females did this too, while one did not until after she whelped the first pup. Most likely I would say that it is normal and that you should expect pups are her due date, but be prepared just in case. Now would also be the best time to start taking her temp. Usually temp is the best indicator as to when she is to whelp!
