    Good heavens, has she still not had them? Yes, surely it must be very soon. The "drop" is a sign that birth is close.

    Reading your previous posts this would make her around 74 days gone??!!!

    I would recommend another trip to the vets if I was you :blink:

    No she is not over due.. And kittens really active as soon as she lays down they start doing the mexican wave! Have noticed a difference in the last day or so.. If she hasn't had them by the end of the week ..I will take her to the vets again

    Was confused so went and re-read all the posts and now even more confused lol!

    As long as kittens are moving then hopefully all is well and she should have them very soon!

    Although on 24/4/11 you said you was on day 67, 25/4/11 on day 69 and on 26/4/11 on day 63 so going by the last it would still make her on day 70 today or am I just going mental? (wouldn't surprise me, been thinking its sunday all day!)

    I think OP is just going on what the vet told her when he saw sooty. Clearly the vet was wrong.

    I think that was a vet estimate as Hieland does not know what day Sooty was mated :) I imagine it is not easy for a vet to tell how long cats are along, so the only sure way to know is to know what day the cat was mated :)
