    I can't feel Tildas babies moving, could it be that they are packed in so tight or surrounded by loads of fluid? The vet said everything was fine last week xx

    have you felt movement before? i would have thought if vet said everything is going to plan thats good , i think like you said sometimes they can be packed in tight, someone more experienced will be along shortly to offer more advice

    Just like us they slow down towards the end, as they might have got into place for the birth...Selectas havent been alot over the last couple of days..and today her tummy feels different...hard to explain...

    so im hoping they have got into place...shes had abit of food today well about 4 tiny mouth falls...

    but she seems happy...loving her cuddles esp at night..i think she will start labour one evening...just have a feeling...:);):D

    One of ours was like this, we couldn't feel a thing towards the end. We paid for a scan at the vets and he said he could see 2 live kittens....she had 5 gorgeous healthy babies :D

    Ive never felt them move. I dont know what day she is on, the vet said last sat that she about 5/6 weeks gone. She never lets me touch her tummy for long. Im sitting staring at her tummy, shes on the arm of the chair right next to me and i think, think i saw movement

    If she will let you try touching her tummy, press in a little, you wont hurt them...sometimes they kick back or move under your fingers...selectas are big and chunky

    I see how long they are by placing my finger from the top of the kitten till the end...xx

    No chance of her letting me touch her tummy for that long, shes always been funny about her tummy, just one of her things i suppose. My housemate said shes definitely seen movement xx

    If shes only 5/6 weeks its doubtfull you would feel anything, its usually the last couple of weeks, by then you will be able to see them move.

    I never feel proper movement before 8 weeks. You can sometimes feel bubbles before that time.

    Shes so fat now she has difficulty climbing the stairs and is desperate to go outside, she tries to sneak out the bathroom window while im in the shower! haha xx
