    Well, I don't expect a kid (yeh, looks like a single to me, think :girl: please), for a couple of weeks. But, when I casually checked her ligs, they were very low! So, I checked Bambi, who I think is due August 28, or so, and hers are right there, hard as pencils. But, she's not making much of an udder yet, her teats are bigger. So, I'll be watching now, but, I won't be staying up for awhile yet.

    Yes she looks good! Udder looks like it could definitely be filling for that date as well. Don't be surprised if you get a big single, but don't be surprised if there's more than one in there too! :)

    I'm not sure exactly...Fernando got into the pasture with the girls when I wasn't looking...Hubby said just to leave him there. I won't be doing that again! But, I was thinking Angels due around the 8/20. But, of course it's just a guestimate. Ligs were tighter when I checked last evening. She's starting to look a little "porky" though! :love:

    So, her ligs are still very low, and now Bambi's ligs are soft. How long have you noticed ligs being soft before they deliver?? We are still early in the month for kids yet, I don't have an exact date, but I thought it would be closer to the end of the month then the beginning! :scratch:

    For me their ligs always lower down, throughout the pregnancy. Would the 20th be 145 or 150?

    Babies soon!! :cool:

    I usually don't start squeezing hineys til the week before mine are due....I usually know the exact due dates so I can only say that I don't feel much softening in ligs til a day or so before they deliver, Di you are going to be a basket case aren't you? :hair:

    Oh yes, I was pretty freaky about Carly, and I knew her due date. Now I'm just going to have to sleep in the barn I guess! And, this weekend I have my sons 2 dogs to babysit. We need a couple of slow do nothing weekends, but no such luck!

    Well, the ligs are still "there", but low and soft. On both does now... :shrug: :GAAH:

    Well, I lost my preggy calculator when my computer crashed a couple of months ago, so I was "guessing" about the dates. So yesterday I was talking with Hubby about it...and he said "Oh I wrote it down on my calendar, they got together (that is Fernando put himself in the doe pen) March 15th". So, since I didn't take him out of the doe pen, it's the first heat after March 15th. I'm thinking we are getting close, but it could still be a couple of weeks. She's looking pretty "puffy" in the "cha cha" now, and her ligs are there, but they've been lower then they used to be for awhile now. I'm watching for the "plug", but no sign of any discharge yet. She and Bambi are acting REALLY lovie, they are sweet loving goats anyway, but I was sitting on the picnic table bench and they were on the top hanging over my shoulders! I had a "goat coat"! So, I'm not letting myself be crazy now, I've done this a few times now so I'm more comfortable with the "signs". :doh:

    Now that's a relief that you have a hubby that does that kind of thing! So now you know that she if she doesn't kid with the March 15th date she'll be due mis September....so you still could have a few weeks to :hair: and I say :girl: :boy:

    Civil is due the 17th and was bred March 20th. She has a udder coming in, isn't huge or anything yet. Can't wait to see what your girl gives you! You might have babies very soon if she was bred quickly after being put with the buck.

    Angel is screwing up her tail, it's so funny when they do that. She look gigantic! I'll take a new pic in the morning. I'm just up to check on her. I hope she waits till Thurs., I have to "work" this afternoon. DIL can watch her if I think she's close. Ligs are there still though a little mushy. Not much udder to speak of. Oh darn! :ZZZ:
