Hi, my lady is 67 days pregnant no nesting behaviour at all just clingy. Well I have been waiting for her to go in labour. Just hour agoo she had this discharge? Is it normal colour? I'm starting to get worried she isn't vocal. No contractions? When she would start them? Thanks in advance

The discharge is normal and means her body is beginning the labor process. Early stage labor can last a day or two. When contractions get stronger you will usually see ripples or waves in her sides. She will likely have her kittens in the next 2-3 days. Hang in there! :)

Still no kittens, I've been up most night. She is very restless.
I went upstairs to my own baby, came down and she had pood in 3 spots on a ground(diharea).
Should I be worried since she hasn't delivered yet and bring her to the vet?

She may still be laboring or perhaps has a kitten stuck in the birth canal or an undelivered placenta. Try to calm her and rub her belly. Try to see what is occurring.

She had only 2. Both ok so far she is feeding them as much as i can see. I just think she is stressed. So I'm trying to not hang around too much. They are so adorable. I want to keep them but jeez ha ha I don't think that will be possible ha ha

UPDATE :
ended up bringing her in to emergency vet clinic. Something was not right, she kept leaving babies alone alot and crying. I've noticed last 2 teats closer to genitals where hard. But not hot. So I knew she was in pain.
Done xray just to be sure there is no kittens stuck and there wasn't witch I was confident that there was not.
It was start of mastitis. Caught just in time. She is alot more settled, and not howling.
I'm glad I caught it in time. If anyone is reading this in same situation bring your cat to vet, it's easier caught in time.
