Nesting - ***** is 7 weeks pregnant

Hello,

I posted a question 2 weeks ago regarding my bully who was bleeding during her pregnancy. After seeing a vet and doing an ultrasound he noted three pups in there but wasnt sure whether they were still living or not as he believed them to be quite small for her, at that time, 6th week of pregnancy.  He felt that perhaps we were a week off on our dates (since 4 AI's were performed) and that might explain their small size.  
Her bleeding stopped after approx.8 days. It was always bright red, no clots. After leaving the vets and after she began bleeding we felt that she was no longer pregnant but have continued pregnancy care in the odd chance that she is still carrying. My question is, when do dogs begin nesting? She has just begun sleeping in my closet, something she has never done and some nights prefers the closet over my bed! She began this about 4 nights ago...She is 7/8 weeks max, I'm just wondering whether this is normal? I'm a worry wort so Ive begun taking her temperature but it remains between 100.9 and 100.3.
I'm still not sure what to think about this "pregnancy"! Whether she is infact pregnant or not...

Any thoughts? Experiences?
This is her first litter, she is 19 months old and she is an english bulldog.
We go back to the vets this Saturday to determine numbers, if any, and size.

Thanks!!

I really don't have any answers for you. Just wanted to wish your Bully the best and hope everything turns out OK.

Bull dogs cant have a natural birth she should be watched and took in for a c section. Dogs however do still nest even if they are not pregnant. Also what did the vet say about removing dead puppies if they have died.

Dear ayli yes bulldogs can give birth natural. My english bulldog breeds natural and she gives birth natural. She just had a litter of six and is doing well.
