We are not really sure I took her to the vet and they did an xray and said she is gonna have atleast 10.. I should be expecting them this weekend.
Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 6 years ago.
Once the temperature drops below 99-100, as you describe, you can expect birthing to start within a 24 hour period - so I would watch for nesting and birthing behavior in the next 24 hours.

So, is it common for her vagina to be really swollen?
Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 6 years ago.
Yes - that is common prior to delivery and with the hormones from pregnancy.
