I don't know anything about breeding either. But I can't even imagine a 3 1/2 lb Chi giving birth. They are the size of a puppy themselves. I would seek a second opinion. Best wishes to you both. xxx

Can you asked for a c section? Will they do that in request? It sounds like you have a lot of concerns and because you are not an experience breeder it seems like it become an emergency situation easily with breach puppies. It was suggested that she could be spayed at the same time as the c section would be done. If I was in your situation, this is the way I would go... I think. Keep us posted!

Thank you all soooo much<3 I have been researching and reading like crazy.Lat night her temp was 100.5 which I've read happens a temp increase then a temp decrease which now she is down to 98.5 then I took another temp 3 hours latter and was 98.8 (but had a sweater on as its cold outside this morning... I called the VET and the women told me I NEED TO LET NATURE TAKES ITS COURSE! I did tell the vet receptionist about her temp drop and she was all ooo sometimes that dose not mean she is going into labor ,but every where I read it says it means she is and in 18-24 hours she could be in labor!!?I really want a second opinion now but on Christmas might be hard and the vet is only 10 minutes so if i need to take her in it can be FAST!The vet seems to be worried more about her not accepting the puppies than all of their lives?They are so sure she can pass the pups that their heads are not too big or anything just breach which happens.
MY WORRY she will break the placenta while the puppies still inside and will down DIE!!The vet told me NOT TO ASSIST to let it takes its course,but if i could save the baby puppy why not?Should I hold Cupcakes head back from trying to rip the placenta if the puppy is still inside her?What if she takes a break on contractions and the puppy's left to drown after she has broken the sack?I don't know how I feel about the whole pulling the puppy towards her stomach to release pups head and arms? Obviously I'm worried she might be more stressed or reject the puppies if I handle them(with towel pulling) to help her or would she EAT THEM I've READ about this happening!!!Cupcake is not nesting in her box she is nesting in my blankets and in my lap!!She has always been right on top of me 24/7 and is now even more following me EVERYWHERE I GO?Last night she woke me up with some low moaning on my chest waking me up and moving around trying to get comfortable (NO SIGN OF ANY OAK COLOR DISCHARGE LIKE HER WATER BROKE OR ANYTHING?I've got her separated from everyone. I'm just worried with the puppies being breach she could break the sack too soon and the puppies drown?My aunt has watched several golden/cocker spaniel puppies even some breach and her advice is to let cupcake do it all on her own,but those r bigger dogs with larger litters Chihuahuas are know for complications?

This is what I had requested to the vet and he is persisting to let her try first on her own.I'll pay the 1,500-2,000 whatever the cost to have her spayed right away and her 2 pups and her be safe.The vet seems to be worried since she is a first time mom that she would reject the pups?

I have NEVER had my girls spayed during a C Section! You stop her hormones and she may not tend to her babies. I have always waited til pups were weaned for the spay. I had a C Section on Christmas Day 5 yrs ago, at 2pm Worked out great, had 2 vets working on her. Was about $400.
