temp drop

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
for those who took their queens temp, how long after a temp drop did they deliver? Icis's has been between 101.3 and 100.5, and today it was down to 98.7.

Most likely very soon then, usually within 12-24 hours.

Oh Liza she sounds sooooooooooooooo close!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been tempted to take Angels. because basically anyone I have talked to (haven't called the vet yet) has said they are betting she is preg if she hasn't had a heat in that long. but she would be 66-67 days from the day she came home so LAST possible day she got preg and NO signs of labor and she is still eating a ton...... And her nipples haven't really changed since that first change they went through. So thinking she not but can't explain the no heat thing. LOL So thought of taking her temp since IK at the vets it was 101 something about 5 weeks ago. LOL

When my cat(Kali) was pregnant we took her temp at 8 in the morning and by 12 noon it was 98 and at 5:30 the same day she was giving birth so it could be any time now good luck to you and Icis

I used a oral ther. and you take a rectal temp. But anyways Liza how is Icis doing? Any signs yet?

You take the temp rectally, I prefer to use digital thermometers, glass ones are too risky IMO.
I took Church's temp tonight, it is 100.4, so not quite low enough to be considered dropped.

post #17 of 22
really thinking I should take Angels temp. but not sure if any of my thermometers in the house actually even WORK right. maybe I will go buy one tomorrow and at least see. that way if she has a temp I KNOW something is wrong, and if it is low then hmmmmmmmmm LOL

I used a regular oral ther. it worked for me. I think a cats temp is suppose to be around 100.2 to 102.5 i think that is they regular for a cat anything higher is a fever and anything below is a sign that your cat is goin into labor if she is pregnant.....lol

hahaaa found a thermometor that worked and some baby oil that i figured would work as "lube" and chickened out! I went to move Angels tail and it was like she KNEW and put her tail down. then I just chickened out on taking it. I am sooooooooo bad, I never even did my babies temps rectally! I have always done under the arm or ear! LOL

so then took the ear one and tried that but think the battery is dying anyways. LOL but with the ear hers was 96.1, mine showed 96.6 for me. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sure that doesn't count huh? LOL
