    Well, I'm hoping somebody will be around this time of the night.

    My doe, Betty Bob, kidded in the middle of the night. I heard her grunting and got out there for the birth. One pretty black and white doe. I figured she was done because she didn't look half as big as my doe who kidded earlier in the week with twins. But about fifteen minutes after she had her, another bubble appeared. I couldn't see any feet behind this one like the first bubble, though. I put some gloves and lube on and stuck a couple fingers in, but really don't have any clue what I'm feeling for. Plus it seemed to make her bleed more. So I have been sitting here with her, but nothing else seems to be going on. No more pushing and the bubble just hangs there. Is it afterbirth or another kid? I know you aren't supposed to pull the afterbirth, so I am not sure what to do. It's definitely a fluid filled bubble.

    Hope a voice of experience can chime in. I've got the laptop in the barn.

    Update:
    It was the placenta/afterbirth, I guess. I had to go inside for a few minutes and when I came back out, she was in the process of expelling the placenta. So that's out of the way now, too. I'll try posting a picture if I can figure it out.

    We've got a little black and white, blue eyed mini-Lamancha doeling. She's so cute and already bigger than the twins that Bambi delivered on Sunday.

    The trick I have found is, the placenta bubble will be dark reddish, like really really dark. A kid bubble will be light - usually a bluey aqua colour or even almost a tan colour.

    I will say though (and its slightly off topic) - not only for this case but all kiddings - if the doe looks unsettled in any way, shape or form, PLEASE put a hand in and investigate, even if she has dropped the placenta. I used to think that once they had dropped the placenta, they were finished. But, I lost a doe, who had twins, then the placenta, and the next day had to be euthanased because she had a third kid stuck, it had ruptured her uterus and bowel.

    Your doe sounds settled though, congratulations :leap: :greengrin: on a gorgeous little girl! Those two boys are pretty cute too!

    Thanks for the replies! I think she is as cute as can be.

    I did notice the second bubble was much darker. I couldn't really see through it like the first one where I could see the kid's little feet and nose. Good to know. Those were my first deliveries--just glad they went pretty smoothly. That's all we're expecting here now. The little girl will be staying here with us, but the boys will have to find new homes when they are weaned.
