    Hi Ruth
    Do you know how many days pregnant she is? Normally they have them around day 65.
    She is running up and down the stairs looking for somewhere to nest, so if you can find her a quiet and comfortable place with blankets and show her where it is then she will settle down.
    The thing to look for is if she loses her plug as this is an imminent sign of labour – once you see this it can take up to 48 hours (in my experience anyway – others may say different).
    If she has not had them by Friday I would not advise leaving her at all.

    My Poppy has just had her Kittens Yesterday. On Monday she started being a lot more loving wanting more attention than normal so i thought that she must be really close.

    Tuesday morning she hardly left my side while i was making/having breakfast. Then only time she did was to go into one of the boxes i set up for her (where she ended up having them).

    I went to work and my fiance said she was in and out most of the morning, then when i came home for lunch she was spending all her time in there and i noticed her contractions starting (did not see the plug stage)

    about 1 1/2 hours later she had had her two kittens.

    Don't know if it will help you but that was my experience

    Hi There, you must be excited sounds like it is going to be sooner rather than later.
    Twinkle had he kittens on day 65, all day she was very vocal and would not leave my side. She lost her plug (very noticable btw) and had her first kitten 1 hour later.
    Four weeks on and they (all 3!!) are climbing up my leg( Thank god for Denim !lol ) trying to see what I am typing.
    Good luck and don't forget those pics if you have time.

    ok i have just come of the phone to the vets and they have said to leave her even if she is showing me attenetion and that they can give us a check up at 9.15 tomorrow. Paying her attention may stop her from going into labour so i have to leave her a lone and just keep an eye out

    so lets see what they say

    thanks again for all of your replys
