Default HELP - Cat swelling after Spay

we are not sure if this is normal or not and for a doctor to look at the swelling they want to charge $118 because it's after hours. can anyone help? i have some pics:

Does this look normal or like internal bleeding?

It does look extremely swollen. But I think it's more of a tissue irritation that internal bleeding...with bleeding I would think the whole belly would be hard and distended. Here's a thread that has a picture in it that is more typical of what post spaying looks like in my experience.

Does it seem to be causing her pain, is it tender? Is the incision clean or is it oozing? Don't know what to tell you in terms of going to the vet. If it's painful/tender or oozying I would take her in. But it definitely bears close monitoring.

Normal, that swelling is looking huge, probally want to get the antibiotics started right away, I'd guess, what does the Vet say?
