Hello I'm new - advice needed for pregnant kitty

Hi I'm hair looking for some advice with my pregnant kitty we do not know how far pregnant she is we only realised 3 weeks ago when her nipples became pink and swollen she is 14 months old and has always been real slim we can feel kittens moving like big lumps n can feel popping and bubbling the fur off her nipples has come off and they are swollen and crusty I thought maybe 7 weeks but she looks tiny compared to others is this just because she is small anyway Click image for larger version

It could be that Minnie is small, and also that she may be carrying two or three kitties.

Here's a chart to figure out her due date. Go from date the nipples first pinked up.
Cat Pregnancy Calendar - Determine The Date Of Birth

Decide where it is you want her to have the kittens. A quiet out of the way place is ideal.....a space in the bottom of a closet would be good to put in a cardboard box, or better yet the bottom half of a cat carrier. Line it with several newspapers, and a soft piece of cloth. She will likely get in and scratch around. Some cats will accept your chosen place; others will prefer to find their own. Discourage her by blocking access under a bed as it is difficult to observe the birthing, checking on kitties, etc. from there. She may have some discharge just before birthing, and will likely be restless going from place to place, and may be panting. Once she has birthed the first kitten she will stay with it until all kittens are birthed.
Cat Labor - The Two Stages Of Labor And Birth For Cats

Do not allow her to go outdoors after birthing the kittens. It is possible for a female to come into heat shortly after birthing and get pregnant again. When the kittens are weaned at around 10 weeks, do get Minnie spayed. Unfortunately black cats are often the last ones to be adopted at a shelter or rescue because some people still view them as bad luck or other silly superstitions.

Do you have a vet lined up in case there are complications?
