Default How soon in pregnancy can you see movement?

Just curious what the normal time after a doe is bred that you can see babies moving and feel them.

My doe Georgia was bred January 6th and already we have seen a major change in her. She has a little preggy belly and last week we saw A LOT of movement and today my friend said she could see a ton of movement and her belly already has a bump!

Usually I dont feel/see movement until they are 3 months preggo so I was wondering how normal this is??

She was a quint so its possible she could be carrying a lot of babies.

With patience, I can feel kids at 3 months in in most does. The notable exception is my really deep Nubian doe - she is less than a month out and I can just now feel the kids.

I call it the "poor man's ultrasound" :P

I haven't been able to feel kids before 3 months and can rarely see them move.

Ya me too! I cant handle an alien right now hehe

Maybe we were just imagining it but her belly is definently being weird! She usually gains a ton of weight. Last year she had ONE HUGE baby! Hoping for a different outcome this time.

Seems like more than one. I changed everyones diet this year so there wouldnt be any large babies again. She was the only one with a huge baby! I think she got too much grain when she was in her early pregnancy last year. This year no one got any grain until they are 6 weeks away and the hay isnt super rich!
