    So my doe is 6 weeks out from her due date and this morning she started losing her mucous plug. I know some will start to lose them early but this seems alot earlier than what I remember reading. I know if she is aborting there isn't anything I can do about it but hoping I am worrying over nothing. I think I felt the babies kicking tonight. This would have been the first time I have felt them in her. Looking for some reassurance.

    I bet she's just fine. All goats are different. I'm new to this but I've read that they are like people in the sense that the mucus plug can regrow.

    I wouldnt worry about it -- does have discharge off and on during pregnancy and this can be mistaken for the mucus plug - or she just released it early.

    If she were aborting there would be blood.

    I agree, she sounds normal. ;)
