    Well, Ophelia is next up. Today is day 140 and her udder is looking good! :) I feel babies kicking around in there and she still has her ligs but is softening. She's a FF bred to Muddy Creek B2 Cameron Blu so I can't wait to see what those babies look like. Hey Chelsey, Cameron's gonna be a daddy!!! Does that mean that you and I will be grandmas??????

    Here are some pics of Ophelia's udder on day 138. I'll take some more as soon as i get a chance. We disbudded the two kids last night, AND I had some chicks hatching last night and this morning, AND it snowed!!!! so, I haven't had a chance to get new pics of her yet... her udder is bigger though, and as of this morning, she still had ligs... oh and pics of Gizelle are here, too... she's next up after ophelia. :) She's due next month... not much of an udder yet

    Re: Baby watch... Ophelia is next up.. Day 144

    Ophelia's udder is developing more, AND her ligs are loosening some!!! I can tell a difference. She's also doing lots of laying around and chewing cud... hahahaha! she's just biding her time and trying to drive me batty!!!

    Re: Baby watch... Ophelia is next up.. Day 144.. discharge

    Well, this evening Ophelia has a little bit of a discharge. :) It's white and mucousy looking. I'm thinking the plug, possibly, is starting to come out. No contractions or anything though... udder is a little bigger...

    I had to make sure I was on the right post!! Ophelias udder looks idententical to my Angel's! lol

    She may go at 145 or she may wait, but if her udder is growing and she's losing her ligs..she may just go to 145

    Re: Baby watch... Ophelia is next up.. Day 149... pics added

    Well, it's day 149 and the weather is wonderful, so I doubt anything happens today... BUT I wish it would!!! Ligs are still there, but they do feel looser since last night. These pics were from last night, by the way, and her udder looks bigger this morning, too... so HOPEFULLLLLLLLLLLY soooooooooooooooon!!!

    Gizelle has a nice udder now, too, but she's not due until the end of next month... looks like multiples for her. Ophelia is long and deep though, so i can't tell if it's twins or just a single. She's not very big...

    I hope so, too... she eats like a little piglet, though, so I know it's not that. She is a FF and a young one at that, so maybe that's it. Well, we'll see!!!!

    Hey- how is Ophelia doing? :)
    You surely should have kids by now (today would be 154?), unless I missed a post somewhere! :?

    Re: Baby watch... Ophelia is next up.. Day 154... pics added

    Yes, it's day 154, and no, there are no babies yet. :( i'm just hoping it's not more of the same problems I had with Cinnamon. I KNOW her due date; it's the only time she could have been bred, too. Her udder is quite a bit larger, but her ligs are still there. No signs of distress--only hunger. HAHA! She's eating everything in sight. With my luck, it's one big single buck or something. Right now I'm just waiting around for something to happen. I started a new job yesterday, teaching English at Alamance Community College, so I assumed she'd have those babies on the ground when I got home--no such luck. :(

    Re: Baby watch... waiting on Ophelia... STILL day 154 :(

    UGH- I would be losing my mind if I were you having to wait that long. :hair:
    Hopefully she gets on with it this weekend- weather is supposed to be nice- tomorrow (here anyway- its probably nice where you are now!) :)
