Question about temperature and whelping.

October 12th, 2003, 07:17 PM
I have been checking her temp since i have an idea of when she got pg but not sure of exact day. This is where my question is. Her temp has consistently been below 100. It's ranged from about 98.9 to 99.7 or so. It hasn't been 100 or 101 like the books say it should be. So, I'm not sure where it should be when she is ready to give birth. Her belly is sagging and she is looking like she is ready but the temp just doesn't tell me anything. Is the temp always at 100 then 98 when they are ready to give birth?
