I keep thinking she is in labor but then she will just go to sleep for hrs. It’s usually at night when she starts nesting.
My Gertie got milk in 5 days ago. She did start nesting today. I'm thinking that she must be close. I just got another pregnant mama yesterday. It's like a maternity ward here

It may be two days now or a few hours from now until she gives birth.
She has suddenly really liked her belly rubbed, usually she hates it! Could this be a sign?

New here, but excited to read a post about babies due any day now. My kitty is at least 63 days in per her xray 2 weeks ago, literally due any moment. I haven't seen any evidence of nesting like I've heard described, but she woke me up a few times last night demanding a lot of attention. We shall see! She is a 6-8 month old stray we took in on Valentines day, expecting 5 kittens.

So she is liking her vaginal area a lot today so I think the babies will be here today or tomorrow. I’m not going to be with her for most the time today so hopefully everything goes well!

Update: no kittens yet, she is acting like she is in labor today so I hope she has them! But I have a concern, the babies barely moved at all yesterday is that normal?

Yes, normal as they are bigger and more squished at the end.

So a rescue cat in my care gave birth last night to 4 kittens (they are adorable!) but I noticed her vagina looks really enlarged. I posted a picture of it, tell me what you think.
Could it just be because she gave birth? Will it go back to normal?

Yes, it will shrink back to normal. You can apply a little coconut oil to soothe.

Wait a few days and monitor to see if it gets smaller. It may have tore while giving birth. The babies would enlarge the area, so it will take time fro it to go back to normal.
