Help with Labor questions

My Toots had her very first litter starting yesterday, "Memorial Day", at around 7:30 pm. Her second one came at about 11:19pm and the third at 11:42pm. it is now 12:18pm the next day and everyone is eating fine but how do I know if she is done? She still has a big stomach and it is kind of hard to the touch. How big are their litters usually? Do you think 3 is all she had? I am worried!

help with labor questions

I just called the vet and I was told that with having 3 she might be done but they also said that sometimes they will take up to a 24 hour break inbetween. **** and I thought when I had my baby I had the labor that never ended! But I was wondering if there is a sure tell of if she has any more babies on the way. I am still worried.

A vet can examine her and feel if there are any kittens left, an experienced breeder can do it on her/his own, but I don't recommend any inexperienced to start pressing on a possible pregnant cats stomach. Take her to the vet if you're worried about here but if she and the kittens are doing fine... just take it easy.

My friend who breeds persians, has x-rays done a week before the mother is due to be safe.
