Poor Tootsie (and poor you!) with so many babies! Sounds like a very busy house this week. Can't wait to see pictures of mama cat with her new kittens when they finally arrive!

Still no babies. I've had her 8 weeks as of tomorrow, so she's got to be within a week. She's starting to get that look on her face that I see on pregnant women between 8.5 and 9 months....the "just get the kid(s) the heck OUT of me...this is uncomfortable!" look.

Still pregnant. I've had her for 8 weeks and 1 day, so she MUST be close. She's not showing any signs of imminent labor. Still got up to 10 more days to go to be considered within a normal term pregnancy. If she hasn't had them by next weekend I'll be taking her to my vet. I'm starting to get worried, but mama Tootsie isn't showing any signs of distress or problems, so for now I just have to sit on my hands. The suspense is killing me.

Taken this morning...she's at least 8 weeks and 3 days along:







She looks "smaller" from the top though (and her hips finally aren't so bony!). Does this mean she's "dropped" and we're getting close?

Her shape does look different in that last picture. I hope this means that she's getting close. And I have to say, Tootsie looks just like my Midnight. Beautiful little girl you have there, Venusworld21.

You should be seeing and feeling lots of movement of the kittens in the abdomen. If you're not, and it does look to me like she's smaller in the abdomen from a previous photo, it possible she's resorbing the fetuses who may have died or she's having a "false pregnancy". If there'a any kind of foul smelling discharge, get her to the vet right away. Yes, it's a waiting game and I know how nerve wracking it can be.

have you been able to feel movement (or even see it sometimes)?
