Gilda is going to whelp soon

Yesterday I took Gilda for X-ray as she has been getting really big. It showed eight puppies. Normally Gilda is around 25 lbs, now she weighs 39 lbs and her belly touches the ground.
Today Gilda refused to eat breakfast and has not had anything to eat all day. I took her temperature in the morning and it was 99.8 (normal temp is around 101.5-102.5). It means that Gilda is going to whelp soon - tonight or tomorrow. It is a bit earlier than we expected but this is something beyond our control. Bitches whelp 63 days after they have ovulated so we must have bred her after she already had ovulated.
