Yes is left they said wasnt broken I sprained it but I popped it so they had to put it back. I figured heck I had my 10 lb boys natural I can do this so I will not be drugged...Holy Cow it hurt the pop is so scary... I can do this.. I dont want to be dopped up while she is giving birth

sounds like active labor to me from what I read on that site you posted (yes I memorized it. hahaaa) but it said the cat may "heave" (hiccup looking maybe?) when they have the heavy contractions! how far apart do they seem now?

Gotta know if I should go to bed or not. hahaaaa.

Ok here it is please let me know what ya think see how she shakes and looks like she is concentrating hard...

That was a good contraction! Awesome, I will keep checking in... Jenny I hope your feeling better, Poor dear...

Well, I thought she was in labor after the first video, and I still think she is... I think it is normal long hours of early labor that we don't notice most of in other cats, but because she is so huge everything is more noticeable. It does look the contractions are getting closer though....

I just hope one of the babies isn't turned sideways blocking the rest

So it isnt just me and my son... He saw it and said mom the cat is shaking I was like what and that was happening to her She loves the headboard so I think I will have to talk her off the ledge when birth is closer

Ok, so now the big decision for me is do I go to bed or stay up

I really want to be able to read almost real-time updates, you know, like Skittles CNN ticker news LOL
But I do have to work tomorrow....

Hun you can go to bed. I will update everyone as things happen...
post #1004 of 2330
Oh, Jenny, I'm so sorry you hurt your foot! I'm glad you didn't fall all the way into the hole!!!

After this is all done, you need to teach us how you manage to keep up with your kids and critters, post on-line saga's...AND FIND TIME TO DO YARDWORK!!!

Take it easy on yourself. Sounds like she is getting closer and closer. I'm off to bed but will check in tomorrow bright and early!

post #1006 of 2330
Maybe I'll go to bed and get up hourly to check for updates

Or not.....

momof3rugrats.......I am so sorry to hear about your terrible fall! Last thing you need right now.......trying to gimp along changing cat litter and beds and such.......now I feel so guilty, we were having fun while you were away at the hospital.....I did think it was odd because what your last post around 4:00 said and then you just disappeared! ...thought maybe it was the satelite thing....sounds VERY PROMISING tonights the night though.....I really think you need that drink now....and maybe a little sympathy from Dr. Clark tooo........

This was taken from gaye's sticky, just in case you need the info:

While most deliveries go without a hitch, if your queen experiences HARD labor for an hour and has not delivered a kitten, you should be concerned. Do NOT let anyone talk you into letting a cat continue in hard labor for more than two hours. (I tend to panic and phone the vet after one hour).

I think they are stronger but with Skittles she is a very unpredictable cat... I bet she is trying to hold them all in lol
post #1017 of 2330
Ouch!!!! I can only imagine how that hurt. I sprained my right ankle and blead in the joint and that was terrible but to pop it out of the joint. Isn't that more like dislocating it? You are really going to be busy. 3 boys, house, Skittles, many Skittlets, I say forget the yard .

And is our lady of the Skittles comfortable tonite. Baby did get shaky when she was in labor. I didn't realize that she was in labor, because she wouldn't leave my lap or my side until she was pushing. And she was definately shaking and watch her face, you will see the discomfort in her face. They make a face like scrinching up there nose when they smell something they don't like when they are having labor too.

She is sleeping and seems to be doing well... I have not seen another contraction yet. I had no clue to time them till last one lol...
post #1020 of 2330
Just remember, cats don't always purr because they are happy.
They also purr to comfort themselves when they are distressed or in pain.
