Some chi's get really it with only one so that is not the best way to judge. I get xrays done on all mine. So for that way has been bang on. I like knowing exactly how many I have. I had a in home vet tell me once that there were no more pups in my one pomeranian and thankfully I knew from the xrays that there were three. I told the vet she didnt know what she was talking about (and she didnt) and took her into another vet who had to do a c-section to deliver the last pup.

Sorry the last post is supposed to say "Some chi's get really big with only one pup" I don't know what I was thinking when I was typing. LOL.

Yeah, don't get to anxious. I used to be like that too. It never helps anything but its hard not to be...especially with your first litter. Just relax. You will be fine.

It is hard to tell just by feeling. Chi pups tend to be long and slender. They could be kicking all four feet at once and believe it or not they can stretch out a bit in there lol.

I guess I'm not going to know until they come then...I'll be hoping for more than two though!

I just hope its soon! How long do I let her go without going into labor? Today is day 62?

Mine came day 63.....Well, If I remember right, she started at like 12am on day 63, she had a pup starting at 1230 or 1, somthing like that, but after 4, I fell asleep, and in the am she had a total of 8.

Glad nothing went wrong, so dont fall asleep, rest up while you can.

My pups are 5 months old now(can you believe it???) and I still have not had a decent nights sleep due to them!!

Good luck, keep us up on it!

I would talk to your vet. A lot of the times (since puppies grow so fast), puppies past 63 days may be too big to come out on their own. I had a chihuahua that we let go to day 64 but then we opted for voluntary c-section. She was huge and over due. Yes, this is gonna cost money but it may save your dogs life in the end. If you have a voluntary c-section done when they are over due and they are not in labour it is a whole lot easier on them because they aren't already tired and stressed from the labour. I mean if they are in labour and over due there is a good chance that one or more of those puppies is already too big. When we had the voluntary c-section done and they pulled 5 puppies from her it was a relief because two of them were WAY to big to come out. So if we had waited we would have had to rush her in for one anyways. And there would have been a greater chance that something could have gone wrong. C-sections are very routine but there is always that chance. Like I said. Talk to your vet if she ends up being over due. They may want to take xrays to compare head sizes to see if the will fit. Is she fairly big in the middle? If she only has 2 or 3 in there and she is large they may get too big. I mean there was 5 crammed into my little girl and 2 of them were huge lol. Either way I hope everything goes well. Keep me informed. I am excited for you.

Supervision of the whelping of each puppy is not an option for me. I stayed up for 38 hours waiting for my last litter.

If you are not there for each puppy to be born, you could have real problems later, and you may not know WHY.

If a puppy is breach, it may not breathe soon enough. If the bitch does not clean the placenta and the birth membranes off quick enough, the puppy may have oxygen deprivation.

Bitches, ESPECIALLY MAIDEN BITCHES, should have caring help with each puppy's arrival.

To do otherwise is to risk the unthinkable.

Chi I hope everything is ok with your bitch. Keep us updated. I really have nothing to add as everyone pretty much covered it all.
Good luck and happy whelping!
