Im not here to critisize... I started somewhere too. Keep a close eye on her. Watch for nesting behavior such as digging in clothes or going into dark places like behind your couch or under your bed. Sometimes their temp can drop and then go right back up again so keep taking her temp to see if it stays low for a while. But at day 62 shes most likely ready and will deliver, most likely within the next 15 hours. What I usually do is put my ready to whelp females in an ex pen in the corner of my bedroom and put the blinds down so it is quiet and dark. Get some clean towels ready for her to lay on while she whelps. Get a few towels because you will have to change them periodically because they get dirty really quick. Also get a few face clothes to clean the puppies off with. She will do it herself but it is good to dry them too. You might want to get a sterile set of nail clippers or scissors to cut the umbilical cords. She will also do this herself but its better if do it since this is her first litter? (Correct me if I am wrong). If you let her do it she may bite them off too short and the puppy will bleed a lot. Make sure you cut the umbilical cord off about an inch and a half or two inches from the belly, then pinch the cut end of the umbilical cord for about a minute. Watch to make sure it doesn't start bleeding again. You may also want to get a basket and put a heating pad turned on low or hot water bottle in the bottem covered with some soft towels so that you can move the puppies into it while the female is delivering the next puppy. That way you eliminate the chance of the puppies getting squished while she delivers. Not all dogs are that careless but some are. In between deliveries you can give the pups back to her. Also please understand that some dogs get very protective the minute they deliver the first pup. She may not want you any where near her. If thats the case step back and watch and if you see her having any problems then step in. And please DO NOT GIVE UP ON A PUPPY. If they come out and they are not breathing it DOES NOT mean that they are dead. Put them in a face cloth and rub them vigorously. If that doesnt work then wrap them in the face cloth, cup your hands around the puppy with its head facing away from you, stand up, put the puppy above your head and kind of fling it towards that ground. MAKE SURE YOU HANG ON!!! AND SUPPORT THE PUPPIES WHOLE BODY! and then rub the puppy again. I have worked on puppies for 20 minutes like this and they finally came around and were fine.
