Try not to worry. But, I know exactly how ya feel...I worried so much over her!
This was the first litter for her and I, so that didn't help much. I think you will just know when something doesn't seem right. I came on here to ask the questions and even called the vet to ask and waited to see what would happen. I was scared that me keeping her closed in the bathroom was maybe why she seemed the way she did. But, she had so much of the fluid draining that I couldn't let her roam the house and I felt terrible to lock her up. I tried to stay in the bathroom with her that last night as much as I could and she kept nudging me and going to the door.
As I said, I think you will just know when you need to take her in. Everyone here is great as you already see...so you'll get help here as well.
As for the c-section...I was so scared that it would be too much...I mean, what if I hadn't had the money for it?!?!?! I'd have been devastated!!! He knew that I was so scared for her and also concerned about the cost and he just had a look of concern for me and her. He told me that he would do the c-section and spay for $200-225. I figured there were hidden costs and asked him what would be the absolute highest cost when we were all done and he told me absolutely no more than $225 and I said do it! That also covered her meds, the followup a couple days later when a stitch came lose and she had leaking, as well as her followup in 2 wks to have the stitches removed. They were awesome there! We go back in 2 wks for the kittens first shots.
Just be sure to have your vet number handy and keep her comfortable and watch her closely. What had caused her high temp a few wks ago? Does the dr seem concerned at all with her delivering without any problems? Maybe you could give them a call and bring them up to date with how she had been with the fever not long ago and where she is at now in her labor and see what signs you should watch for?! They may want her to be seen as a precautionary measure, you never know.
Keep us posted!!!
