Kudos to you for helping momma dog + puppies!

The most important thing (besides making sure all are nursing) right now is keeping them warm like colliewog said if you have a scale, or able to get one tomorrow, monitor their weight.

Also recommend giving mom calcium (during and after whelp). Yogurt, cottage cheese, goats milk, etc. etc. all good to supplement her with.

As far as I know now she has settled down a bit she has been doing everything right. However I don't want to disturb her considering I am still a stranger.

It's important that she is cleaning them because they will become septic if they do not defecate. It woudn't hurt to gently wipe their bottoms with a warm washcloth or cotton ball (to simulate a licking dog) to stimulate them to go. They will go right away if they need to and then you can be sure it's been done. You don't know if she's done this before and lots of new moms don't know what to do right off the bat and you could lose someone.

It's ok I was watching her and she did it. Thanks for warning me though because I wouldn't have known to look out for it

I just wanted to be sure there was some sense of urgency in the comment that Grammy made. It's as important as food and warmth!

And I forgot to say ... bless you for taking this dog in to your home in her time of need!!!!

We couldn't have left her out side. There is ice everywhere. The house is feeling a bit crowded with 5 dogs and 4 pups but everyone is settling down.

Is it normal for puppies to squeal a lot?

because unless they are taking it in turns there is usually one puppy being noisy (of course as soon as I typed this there was instant silence lol)
