hi I have a year-and-a-half old American Bobtail and she's pregnant I've noticed for the last few days that her nipples have gotten darker and are losing hair around them, her belly has been big for at least 2 weeks and I've noticed movement within the last 4 days. this is her first litter and this is new to me, but today I've noticed that she is not sitting in one spot for more than 5 to 10 minutes she still has been eating regularly I'm just anxious to know when she should be close to having them

When was she bred? That is the best way to determine her due date.

To be. Honest i have no clue she got out of the house a time or two and i didnt even noticed she was pregnant until about January 4th I noticed her nipples were bigger than usual her belly wasn't grounded yet but I've noticed it's grown a lot in the past couple weeks and I can visibly see the babies move

Sorry, since you said she was an American Bobtail I assumed you were breeding her intentionally. (The American Bobtail is a pedigreed breed. A bobtailed cat that doesn't belong to any specific breed would be a bobtailed domestic shorthair.)

Usually cats "pink up" around 3 weeks after they have been bred... if you noticed that she pinked up around January 4th, my guess would be that she is about 6-7 weeks pregnant now, and she will be due to have her kittens in 2-3 weeks or so.

Sounds good! :) Be sure to keep her 100% indoors until the kittens are weaned and you can have her spayed, since she can come into heat and get pregnant again very shortly after birth, and that wouldn't be healthy for her or the kittens.
