    Female overdue to whelp???

    Hi, all!

    It's been such a long time since I've posted, but I figured if there was anyone that could help, I could find him/her here.
    Now, let me preface this by saying that I do plan on calling the vet tomorrow morning, I just wanted some insight/input now.

    I have a nine-year-old female beagle, who is pregnant for the second time. (The last time she was pregnant was 2011.)
    My husband and I do have experience with helping pregnant females whelp pups. This is our sixth time (not with this particular female, of course.)

    I'm almost positive (99.9%) sure that I wrote down the correct day of the breeding. It was only ONE time, so I know there are not additional dates to consider.
    I know that the gestation period is 63 days. Today marks Day 64, if you don't count the actual day of breeding as Day 1.

    Questions: Is she late? Should I be worried? Is this life-or-death?

    I have fears of the puppies getting so big she cannot whelp properly. I have fears they'll pass away inside her, and she could have sepsis.

    Anyone else have experience with this? If she hasn't whelped tonight, I plan on calling the vet in the morning.

    Hope everything turned out okay. I have no experience with breeding, hopefully the vet helped you.
