    At last after 67 days of waiting, Lulu has finally gone into Labour.

    She has had 3 so far, they all look to be lilac, I can feel at least one more inside, she seems to be having a little rest now.

    When the last kitten came she broke the umbilical cord and the placenta hasnt come out yet, should I be worried or should it come out when the next kitten comes?

    Thanks Jen x

    Hey Jen congratz !!!!!

    :)

    In regards to the placenta, i wouldnt worry too much i have had girls do that and it usually comes out along with the next kitten but keep an eye and make sure you do see it if not then she may have absorbed it (if thats possible) but maybe a call to the vets maybe in order to ask their advice.


    good luck and look forward to the pictures :) xx

    Thanks stacey, I had it happen a few years ago, but It was at the last kitten, that time I called the vet and they said to take her in the morning, a couple of hours later it came out on its own.

    Iam probably worrying over nothing, when the next contractions come ill make sure Iam looking for it.

    Thankyou:)

    Hi Chris, Iam sitting right next to her, might have to make a cuppa in a bit though, Iam parched. Everything has gone quiet for now, she is suckling these 3 ok though.

    Sods Law too, I just bunged the chicken in the oven for sunday dinner and she decides to pop them out lol. Weve ended up with chicken baps!

    Have you got your new girl yet?

    No 4 is out. another breech. This was a difficult one , tail was out but legs were stuck! He had been out of the sack for a while, and hed stopped breathing. Ive managed to revive him, dont know whether he will make it though. Poor Lulu , this is a hard 1st litter for her:(

    No 4 is suckling now, looks like hes gonna be ok. Thats a few more grey hairs for sure.

    Not sure if there are more yet, hopefully not, my nerves are in shreds:blushing:
