    Hi all , just wondered if anyone as any advice/info for me regarding my queen , this is her 1st litter , shes nearly 1(1st june) , her mum had largish litters (5 &6's) she is very slight of frame normally ( she called for long periods , so had to mate her a little bit sooner than myself , vet or stud owner really wanted ) she had no confirmed matings when she went to the studs , but after about 3 days the stud owner "knew" the deed had been done she stayed 3 more days at the studs and towards the end of her stay was very loved up indeed :thumbup: she picked up and is now well into her pregnancy (5 weeks and 4 days) . My question is, Honey is showing loads on both sides of her tummy and its very very rounded and has that pregnancy wobble :scared: does this mean its likley to be a largest litter? or bigger kittens ?or just normal size but cos she is slight normally shes just not hiding the bulge very well

    i will try to post a pic in a min

    Hi, i wouldn't worry too much. I worried all through Poppies pregnancy as she looked HUGE from week 3/4 and just got bigger, she was so big by Saturday she couldn't even clean her bottom.

    As you know she gave birth to 2 kittens, one 110g and the other she didn't let me weigh but is now 210g!

    What I did have with Poppy which I didn't have with Misty was a huge gush of fluid and I do mean gush it actually came as she contracted and my jeans were all wet and the box very wet. I was convinced she was having 4 or 5. Her mother had 8! :eek:

    Don't worry, if it turns out to be huge litter and her body does not feel like its coping perhaps some will be reabsorbed. Don't worry though, she looks fine and very lovely.

    I now wish I had not worried as much as I did. :)
