I need help...
Okay girls, I can NOT for the life of me remember if I added a degree to Tiffs Temp last litter or not, I bought my thermometer @ wally world it's just one for humans but digital (Purple, Name of thermometer: Reli On, matter fact our vet has one too!) I take her temp through the bottom like we're suppose too. I think I did add the degree to 1st litter, I know we do for our babies (Human) but do we for dogs? And see it's to me been low compared to last litter, which her whelp date then was May 4th and she was going out and now she's not going outside @ all just laying in the living room on lamante (Sp) flooring...& gets on her blankets or baby basket, up to her.
Well last litter here is her temp.:
4/27, am temp: 100.1 pm/temp: 100.8
4/28, am temp: 100.2 pm/temp: 100.2
4/29, am temp: 101.2 pm/temp: 100.1
4/30, am temp: 98.9 pm/temp: 100.2
5/1, am temp: 101.1 pm/temp: 99.9
5/2, am temp: 100.3 pm/temp: 99.7
5/3, am temp: 99.7 pm/temp: 98.9
5/4, am temp: 98.4 1st babie @ 2.47 pm
Now here is what her temp.s are just by taking them and writing down what it says: I really truely think I added that degree!!!!!! If so then...I'm getting excited! LOL!...Anyways:
6/6, am temp: - pm/temp: 99.1
6/7, am temp: - pm/temp: 99.7
6/8, am temp: - pm/temp: 99.4
6/9, am temp: - pm/temp: 99.1 Had to get into the hang of taking AM Temp!
6/10, am temp: 99.6 pm/temp: -
6/11, am temp: 99.9 pm/temp: 99.4
6/12, am temp: 99.7 pm/temp: 99.7
6/13, am temp: 99.9 pm/temp: 99.7
6/14, am temp: 99.7 pm/temp: 99.8
6/15, am temp: 99.4 pm/temp: 99.7
6/16, am temp: 99.5 pm/temp: 100.2
6/17, am temp: 99.6 (3pm temp 99.8) pm/temp: 99.4
So do I add the degree??? I feel so stupid here not remembering, gonna write it down this time, I could probably find out on the web but don't trust it like I do U all! And don't crack up laughing @ me for forgetting, this litter is just driving me nuts!!!! WAITING AND WAITING!!!!! Please someone tell me...I just thought of that awhile ago (The adding a degree) I'm loosing my mind! Hugs, Lee &

As with humans the rectal temp is the most accurate. You do not add or subtract. In humans, we add a degree to a temp taken under the arm. My vet told me that the temp starts to drop about 24 hours before whelping. My female's temp went from 101 to 99.8 and nothing for days , then it dropped to 98.9 and she went into labor.

The waiting is hard but you won't loose your mind. In a couple of days you'll have pups to worry about.
