I would expect pups in the next 24 hours if that temp has been reached.
You will perhaps see it go back up before pups start to come.

If it goes down again below 97F I'd get the dog to a vet as there is likely something wrong perhaps an early placental separation and internal bleeding.
Hope this helps you!
