How Long Is 1st Stage Labour

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone: I Haven't Visited For A While But Now I Have A Question I Hope Someone Can Answer, My Himalayan Is In Labour And Has Been Breathing Heavy For 15 Hours. She Seems To Stop Every Once In A While, Temperature Has Dropped And Milk Is Present
She Had To Have A C-section With The First Litter As It Was 1 Large Kitten, She Had A Slightly Bloody Discharge That The Vet Wasn't Concerned About This A.m. How Long Should I Let Her Go Before I Consider Another C Section? No Straining Is Visible Yet

Thanks For The Links But After Reading Them They Describe What She Is Doing To A Tee But Don't Give Any Indication As To Time Frames?

On other sites I have read 12-36 hours is normal. Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Nothing Yet There Is No Change, I Will Give Her A Couple Of More Hours Then I Will Take Her To The Vet. I Just Hate To See Her Have To Have A C-section Again

Oh Poor Tia that she has to have another c-section. Keep us updated and glad, but sorry she will have to be spayed also.

The C-section Was Done Around 4p.m. And I Just Talked To The Vet And She Is Fine As Are Her 5 Kittens. That Is Good News Because We Only Thought There Were 4. So That Helps With The Cost A Bit.

Poor Girl! Congratulations on the babies! I was told by my vet that if a queen is ever c-sectioned that they will always have to deliver c-section after that. I had my persian queen c-sectioned as well. I also raise Himi's, What colorpoint is your girl?

The kittens came home a half hour ago and they are doing great along with momma, she seems a little bewildered but content and they are all eagerly nursing. Her family is complete.
