Hi, my cat is pregnant not sure how far along she is bc she was a stray and I took her in she has a whole setup for her and her kittens I just want a better idea on how much longer pls ask questions to understand better this Is her, and her name is rose
She also has been being really clingy and gets very uncomfortable when I’m not around she also can’t seem to really stay comfortable and changes her position a lot and I can feel her kittens in her belly now and I can see them move from time to time she is also eating a lot more and not wanting to play but instead lay down all day she has been moving stuff around in her birthing box she has a nice setup for her and kittens

her nipples are also really visible and she is being more vocal when I leave she meows really loud and starts pacing

Its essentially just to wait. You feel kittens move 2-3 weeks before delivery - in part depending on how used you are to palpitate.

Before delivery labor several days before, she may get the braxton hicks contractions,

And its common she drops a couple of days before delivery; ie suddenly seems less preg...

So essentially just to prepare as well you can - and wait calmly. :)

Thank you for replying and answering my question ,yes I think she may be having braxton hicks contractions again she makes every musse in her body tense up and then gives a little push but then is perfectly fine again it’s kinda confusing

There are those kinds of variables and I agree with what was said earlier that it might be a couple of weeks. But keep watch from day to day as these are all estimates.

You did not ask this, but I don't think that she is feral, more like a stray or abandoned pet.

Is this normal for her to suddenly feel better and be back to herself but no kittens yet

I hope it was these Braxton Hicks convulsions.. prelabor. Its a way of nature to train up the muscles.

Interrupted labor isnt good, although I suppose it happens.... But as long she is fine, it shouldnt be dangerous even if always touchy..

In the time you wait, be sure you give her calcium rich food, whatever you have at home and she eats.
Because low level of calcium may cause weak labor...
Cant hurt, may help.
