Im thinking rescue cat may not be pregnant anymore

Help the vet said my rescue cat is pregnant as she could feel what she thought to be foueteses inside her belly. She guessed she was only 3 or 4 weeks pregnant.. Her nipples are pink and twice the size of my desexed cats nipples and she has lost three hair on them also as well as some hair on her privates.. I have had her for 6 weeks now so she should be due about now. Heres the thing.. She has gone into heat twice and her tummy while hard and bigger is not huge.. Vet says ill just have to wait it out (I phone very often).. What r ur thoughts?

At 3-4 weeks it's almost impossible to tell without x-rays or an ultrasound. Do the math and wait and see what does or does not pop out!

65 days gestation age for cats is normal, tho 63 days to 69 days fall within that range. Sometimes females have a "false pregnancy", show all the signs of being pregnant but then they go away. Also, sometimes the female resorbs the fetuses usually within the first month of gestation.

A belly full of worms will make it look like she is pregnant too.

Her nipples r pink and she has lost fur around them. She would b estimated at 67 days approximately according to the vet ill give it one more week then take her to the vet.. As she may have been 3 weeks pregnant not 4..

I can't believe the vet can't just palpate her belly and tell you not only if she's preggers but approximately how many kittens are in there....
