Pregnant f4

I have a couple questions/ concerns.
My f4 is pregnant, or so we thought, but she hasn’t grown much in the past couple weeks, and should be due within 2 weeks or so. Her nipples are enlarged and pink, but she hasn’t stopped running around and being her usual self. She is super affectionate though.
I just want to know, how come I can’t see her babies moving?
Also, why is she so rambunctious? I thought pregnant cats were usually more calm. At least from the ones I’ve observed.

Well if she was pregnant when you got her, she may have reabsorbed the litter...it's not the best way to start breeding...or maybe she only has one kitten. You would an ultrasound or x ray to confirm

I made an appointment for the vet! Thank you. I kind of assumed that’s the only way to find out.

It is not unusual for a pregnant female to remain active, I cant recall one who has ever actually calmed down during a pregnancy. As fro size and seeing babies move - it's possible that there is only one or two kittens so she may not get that big, and I have rarely been able to see babies moving, but I can usually feel them moving the last week or so of their pregnancy.

It is also possible, as Paige mentioned, that the litter was reabsorbed - given the stress a cat is subjected to when moving to a new home, it would not surprise me.

Update: took her to the vet. The vet said she is definitely pregnant and should be giving birth within the next two weeks. While we were there, though, the vet didn’t take into account how spazzy she is and she fell off the table right onto her side. I hope she’s okay. The vet didn’t have much to say about it but I’m not sure if she was just trying to cover her butt.

Well it's good that the vet was able to confirm pregnancy. I would not be too worried about her fall - it isn't the first time a pregnant Savannah has spazzed out and fallen!
