Any chance she'll be able to nurse?

Honestly I almost think you don't count; you don't breed without homes or without thought.
I believe she has had a litter before? I think her experience will benefit her here. I know bitches get c-sections all the time and go on to nurse, so I bet she can do it. Cross our paws!
Can you put one of those "body pillows" in there (if you have one)? That might help make her a little more comfortable and take some of the pressure of her stomach... maybe???
Poor baby... give her some scritches from me.

Sucks to be in pain like that, what is she getting being pregnant and all?

I'd definitely try to cover the stitches up when she's nursing, I can just picture those little puppy claws getting caught in there.
I really hope for you, her and the puppies that everything will be fine and that she'll be ok to nurse.
