Having her fixed will solve this issue. But don't wait, every heat cycle she has will increase her chances of cancer and other reproductive health problems.

Yes that is normal. My mom's bichon frise was recently in heat and her genitals were swollen. All females experience some swelling when in heat.

Yes it is. This is the just one of many stages of heat a female will go through. Depending on which stage she is in I am assuming the 2-3 week. Swollen genitals is very normal.
