Question Giving Birth

Friday morning, my bf text and said get home asap i think she is having pups, so i get home, and everything was normal, he said he thought that because she had clearish mucusy stuff hanging out of her down there, and he thought it was her mucus plug or water breaking or something. So i asked around, and everyone i asked-including breeders, said that i should be expecting the pups to arrive minutes to hours from then, well, they never came, everything since then has been normal, i have felt them moving and active, and no issues, but its now Sunday, and still no change, so i'm curious, is it normal for her to be discharging like that and not have pups? Based on what the previous owners told me as far as when she came out of heat and all, i wasnt expecting them until late next week.

Sorry, wish I could give you some good advice, the only puppies any of my dogs had, I was given Marmalade and a day and a half later she had two pups. More experienced breeders should be coming on soon to give good advice, I just wanted to wish you and her good luck.

Thank you very much!! I will look into that. I was really hoping she'd have them this weekend cuz i dont want her to have them while i'm at work, it just worries me. I am just hoping that everything works out well for her and the pups. Is the losing of the mucus plug the same thing as the water breaking? sorry, i have never had kids myself, so not too knowledgeable in this area.

Be very careful with this! I had a chi pregnant with 5 pups start going into labor and the pups never came because one of the pups was stuck in the birth canal. Thank goodness I got her to the vet, but I should have went sooner than I did. It was scary for me as it was also my first time & probably my last! haha

No the mucus plug is not the same as the water breaking. Mucus plug is just that, I plug of mucus in the birth canal. It can also regenerate so if she loses some it will grow back. If she is eating and drinking and not in distress, she is probably just fine, especially since you know her due date. But, if you are at all worried, you should take her to her vet, just to make sure.

Since she is under a year old it is definately best if someone is with her, she is still young and might not have the motherly instinct yet.

Good luck, do you have any pics of her? I would love to see.
