Now how on earth would we know that? Only your vet can tell you approximately how far along she is. A dog's gestation period is, on average, 63 days.
You MUST see a vet. Beg, borrow, care risk having your dog die, as well as all the puppies.

Wiley is right, there is no possible way any of us knows how much longer!!! For all we know, she already could be past her due date and in failed labor and desperately needing a C-section to now save her life.
The only choice you have at this point is to get her to a vet RIGHT NOW.
BTW, a spay, even at the most expensive vet, is way, way cheaper than a C-section, which is around $1500, or, for that matter, cheaper than the average cost of raising just ONE puppy to 8 weeks of age, which is estimated at $250 per puppy, NOT INCLUDING your time spent feeding and cleaning them, or any emergencies which can and do arise.

Not quite sure how you missed her bulging tummy & huge teets of pregnancy. You can call any vet, just ASK the same questions you asked here. Most dogs do fine w/o a vet. If she's an outdoors dog, give her a box (big enough she can stretch out) or set her up in a decent shed or garage w/a old clean blanket, towels or straw in it out of the weather. If she's indoors, same thing. Put the box in an out of the way spot in a spare closet or basement, put her special toy in it - she'll get the idea & start "nesting". Dropping for a dog is faster than humans, in day or two you'll be a grandparent. If she has difficulty w'the birth (it could take several hours) then CALL the vet BEFORE closing hours. Then SAVE your $$ to have her spayed asap.

Here's an article on help for affording vet care. Sorry I can't be of more help in the pregnancy area, never dealt with that before. But please, get her spayed after the puppies are born. Good luck.
