EEK!!.. and breath...nice and calm.. You too @Finsky , good luck!!
I'll be thinking of you & Lida tonight!
Thank you for all the support It will be needed! I am not frightened what is about to happen but certainly VERY nervous and excited. Girl is not ready for action quite yet as she has only just had her dinner and with a good appetite as well!
But her tummy has taken life to its own and puppies are getting ready to come out..such a wriggling going on
I've been prepping stuff and re-checking anything and everything..organized all the 'equipment' on their places so I don't have to search anything when the action start. What ever need sterilizing is done and ready. Mountain of towels piled up for easy reach..OH golf towels are going to be put in good use..wiping up the mess! Can't really think anything anymore that I should be doing other than wait and rest..if possible.
It really feels like 'calm before the storm' and I'm not used to it. I'm more of 'calm' or 'storm' kind of person...not used to waiting to something to happen. But we try to savour the moment as all this is one off experience...first time. If I were ever to repeat this...well, it would not be first time nerves anymore but 'been there and done that'.
Right....I hope next post is about the 'results'
Oh wow @Finsky it doesn’t seem like yesterday that you were thinking about it! Good luck to you both
Soooooo - even if I don't win a puppy I'll say two girls and four boys.
C'mon folks, get guessing.
5, puppies; 2 girls, 3 boys
Four pups, three boys and one girl.
Wishing you all the best…have drink in hand already to toast the new arrivals
Rather late to the party so will go with 2 girls and a boy.
7 pups, five boys two girls.
...and no news yet! Our girl seem to have her own 'book of bitch' I got so excited with the dip in her temperature. She has been positively comfy all weekend...and eating...and not really showing much sign for anything other than those puppies in her tummy are doing some 'Irish dancing'
Her temperature chart has done 'double dip' but since early hours this morning she had let occasional grunting noise so maybe those pups have been kicking out bit too hard for her comfort...and about time too!
I'm not expecting much today neither as she has just found bit of appetite for few treaty bits and I little later I will try bit of proper food as well. Her tummy is now quite massive!
And there I was thinking you'd gone quiet because you were up to your elbows in afterbirths or something! It's good to hear she's eating for half a dozen or so...
I almost wish it would be a case having wet elbows. LOL...I've not slept properly all weekend. I'm listening every little noise and movement she makes...for 'just in case'. Being on alert is absolutely knackering...and the pups are not even out yet! 'Yaaawn' Oh well....it is what it is and there nothing one can do but wait....and give gentle tummy rubs....and enjoy the bulging pup tummy while I can
You may find the puppies go "quiet" within the last few hours too.
What has her temperature done now?
That all looks very strange!
Hmm...indeed...she does not read dog 'instructions'. But then again..it looks more drastic than it really is. Other than that 'double dip'...her general temperature is well within normal range and generally those changes are only a very tiny. To me that just shows her hormonal works are on the over drive.
She is now refusing 'proper food'. I just had bickie with my coffee and she had little bit of that, but even then after sniffing at it some while and having a good think about it.
And she is doing a lot of just standing about and staring. If we go outside she wants to hide under one bush where she has been digging a 'den'. Where as yesterday she was still 'bright spark' at times, today she is bit zombified.
It is her counted day today....so maybe it is going to happen tonight
I'll be thinking of you! All should go brilliantly - she is, after all, a terrier.
I just popped over the say...'tonight it the night'! Girl is FINALLY in her whelping box and getting ready for the big delivery sometime later...
I'm nervous and excited of what is going to happen!
Wishing you all the best...will be thinking of you
Ooh, exciting I hope all goes smoothly, Finsky, and look forward to happy news tomorrow!
