I have not seen that particular behavior.  Your vet may be out of town but s/he should have coverage by an emergency vet during that time.  If not, go to another vet, this isn't something you should wait on.

Unless a dog is part of a responsible breeding program, I strongly suggest that they be spayed/neutered, especially if they are female.  Even experienced breeders lose litters and dams, most chihuahua females are much too delicate to be bred.  The vet bills and small litter size make this a negative money maker, you will spend much more in proper care than you would by breeding her and selling the puppies.
