It was finally beginning to feel like Leaf-fall, and it had been even harder to leave her nest this morning with Blackwing's warmth surrounding her. However, Cloudpool had her duties, training her apprentice Birchpaw, and she wanted to check on the queens and kits first to ask how they were doing and find out if they needed her for anything. Also to see how Fernkit was faring. After her excursion the other day, Cloudpool had tried to help Ashwhisker keep her under close observation.
The mostly white she-cat paused for a luxurious stretch after emerging from the nursery, spotting Silentsong puttering around camp. Cloudpool arched her back to finish her stretch and then smiled warmly at the she-cat. The calico warrior had begun to get lethargic in the mornings, and had gained some weight, as well as a sort of... glow. Her scent had begun to change too, a subtle change, but one which Cloudpool recognized from so much exposure. Silentsong had not revealed her pregnancy yet to the clan, and she was obviously still early on, only a little more than a quarter moon probably. With a chuckle, Cloudpool stepped towards the she-cat, of all the she-cats in the clan she was probably the closest to Bluejay with the understanding of how she-cats bodies worked during pregnancy.
"Good morning Silentsong, how are you? Have you eaten yet?" Cloudpool remembered that she had always been starving while she was pregnant, especially in the mornings, but some she-cats would have a nauseous feeling and refuse to eat until sometime after Sunhigh. "Or are you the kind of she-cat to feel sick in the mornings? If you are, Im sure Bluejay can help you with that, on top of whatever other herbs she is giving you."
Especially being pregnant in Leaffall and Leafbare medicine cats usually gave queens strengthening herbs, and depending on how restless or uncomfortable they were, a medicine cat may give out herbs to calm them down. It was simple practice to ensure they were healthy. Cloudpool had had them herself during her last pregnancy.
"If you havent eaten, would you like to share a meal? Im sure you have questions or concerns, and while Im sure Bluejay has answered all of them, she doesn't have personal experience, and I would love to help you through this probably confusing time."
