Have you done an ultrasound and/or x-rays, since you know she got bred? If not, then you really need to do an x-ray to see if there are puppies. Very small puppies, and/or a single puppy can be more worrisome than a larger litter of normal sized puppies, since she might not have the normal amount of hormones to support a safe whelping, and could need a c-section.

No she hasn't been to the vet. She weighs about 85-90 lbs after her encounter with our 5 lb yorkie her temperament changed she was very hyper before now very calm and sweet her tits got huge but then seemed to get a little smaller so i assumed it was a false pregnancy but given she would've been due july 8-14 and her temp is now dropping I'm starting to think maybe she really is pregnant. I've had pregnant dogs before and her belly doesn't seem large enuf but I've never had a large breed pregnant with teacups

I'm afraid only a vet can confirm for sure. She could absolutely be carrying a small litter or singleton that isn't showing as a big belly, and I'd want confirmation from a vet if she were my girl, so I'd know if I had to prepare for labor and a potential emergency c-section.
