I am a 1st time poster but have bene reading many of your posts over the last few weeks. Since, I have found so many of your posts/responses very helpful with the pregnancy questions and concerns of my "princess" I thought that now is as good a time as any to ask a question of my own. My 2 y/o siamese mix princess delivered her first litter 9/11/05 2 hrs after her delivery she was having some bleeding ( not pouring but dripping from her vagina) I was concerned with this and took her to the vet right away. During the trip to the vet and the 2 hour wait she stopped bleeding so we were sent home. Since then she has started to bleed again, I have been trying to keep a close eye on her but now that she is cleaning herself constantly it's hard to see the exact amount of blood...it isnt profuse though. Is it normal for there to be any bleeding after the birth and if so for how long? BTW ...thank you for all the great questions asked in these posts .. It's been a very long week for princess, she was scheduled for a c-section tomorrow but after 73 days of waiting and lots of trips to the vet this week she delivered 5 very healthy kittens at home without surgery. I will post some photos of the babies since I have been enjoying all the new pics posted over the last week.
