contrations or trying to throwing up

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Eboney looks like she may be having some contritions, but I cant tell they are spread out like once every 2-6 hours and I cant tell if it is because she eats and then her tummy gets a Little upset, she had one late last night and then again this morning. It looks like throw up movements. those hard, whole belly moves, looks like she is going to gag, and then she doesn't throw up..

Should I be concerned or just keep waiting it out?

I feel like any minute any minute, but then I am not a patient person, and I know that she will have them when it is time,. She does have a lot of signs, though. She is and has always been loving cuddly cat, but lately she wants to be rubbed, petted and comfortability sitting on your lap at all times. She has dime size milk bags under each nipple, she is re-arranging her birthing box, scratching it, etc.

Those match all the signs Shinobi showed when she was going into labor, so I'd say its probably soon.

Still no babies yet.. She has been very quiet, sleeping she has had a couple of more of those, I will call movement's, through out the day. She is not eating hardly at all. I think I will take a pic of her latter to show you all, prob. the last time she will get her pic's with her huge belly..

mountaindew: I know I am watching your story in suspense as well.. I'm so excited as well for us both....

Thank you both shepatna and Abstract...

You may still have a bit of waiting to do... the vet told me that the first stage (what she's showing signs of) can last several hours. Shinobi's went very quickly - I left her in the room for about 45 minutes, came back and she had two kittens already, so I was lucky

Im over here in suspense too

I bet either today, or tomorrow. Contractions usually build up. Once my cat had them about every 2 - 5 minutes, the vet told me no longer than 4 hours after that I should see kittens, he was right!

still no kitties, should I be concerned, those movements stopped. I just keep telling myself in good time in good time.... Is there a time I should be concerned and take her to the vet. Today is 64 days, I think...

The suspense continues..

Salem displayed the same signs, just before she went into labor -- with the exception of the "throwing up" thing.

If you're really concerned about her, call your vet to see what he thinks..

Good luck! I know how exciting it is!

She is hiding in the closet, scenting I think, small, small. place.. Watching her closely.
post #15 of 37
She looks big to me, I'd say 5 at least. She looks as big as my Momma kitty from 10 years ago, who had 7!

If she is in the closet she could be close. Keep an eye out and we'll all keep an eye on the posts to see if there is a delivery I hope so soon for your sanity

ebony--- I wouldn't get worried yet since she first got out 64 days ago and was gone for a week she may only be 57 days. plus a cat can be preg. for 70 days..... with that said GL and I hope this is it. Angel is showing no signs of labor at all. LOL

Nothing yet, I don't feel well today, but will keep you all posted as soon as anything happens.

Hope you are feeling better. any signs of anything going on yet? discharge or anything? Angel is showing nothing at all. she hasn't been eating as much but it seemed that the only time she really pigged out was this weekend then slowed back down.... I am begging to wonder if Angel is really preg. or if we are all just crazy that thougth we felt the kittens move. we don't feel them all the time or even see them at all...... LOL

Thanks all...
I Feel a little better today..

UPDATE: Eboney is defiantly searching for somewhere to have her babies, and she is so restless, she looks different to me today, her tummy looks to be a different shape, and she is not being able to sit still for long periods of time, whereas, before she was sleeping for hours and hours.. Her nipples are also very big and look darker today.. I am going to check for milk in them in a few minutes..

I think her time may be finally coming, soon, I hope....

OMG!!! False alarm, I thought for sure this morning was it!!! Still nothing, if she doesn't go by tomorrow morning, I am taking her to the vet, to see if she is alright. She had quite a few hard contractions this morning and she was acting odd, but it wasn't labor, I guess..... So sad, I hope she is okay.. I will keep you all updated...

Please pray she is just taking her time and that she is okay and can do labor the natural way...

I'm really getting worried, maybe she doesn't make her own pitiocin(sp?)(labor starting hormone.) or something>?!>!

GL!!!!!!!!!!!! I know it is hard to worry but dont' forget you really aren't sure how far along she is either but good thing to get her checked out JIC too.
