    I havent been on here much since my surgery- its been remarkably difficult to sit at the computer for very long!

    Chardonnay is a FF and is looking great so far! She is fat and miserable and has been for about a month now. She has two breeding dates and is due (150) on June 20th or June 23rd. Im assuming the second date, putting her at 138 today.

    I will see if the hubby can snap any pictures in the next day or so - since Im not really getting down there yet for anything more than to drive around in the truck and look at everyone for a few minutes :sigh:

    Hubby will be on kidding watch and taking care of me and the 15th month old :doh: so hopefully he catches it, or she has no problems on her own. I hate not being there for any kiddings, but especially FF kiddings!

    :pray: :girl: :girl: :boy:

    Welcome back. I've been wondering where you were. :hug:

    Good luck on the kiddings, but I'm sorry you can't be there with the does. That bites!

    At least the weather hasn't been that great the past couple days so it dosen't make you want to be out as much.

    Sorry, I haven't been on lately...busy, busy. So, you had the surgery! Is it everything I said it would be?! Did your Mom come up? Good luck and I hope you recover quickly...you have a baby, right? I'm so sorry...can't imagine how hard this is for you with youngsters needing you.

    Hope Chardonnay kids with little drama. Let me guess, we are hoping for :girl: :girl: , right? Good luck!

    Re: Chardonnay kidding soon! Day 138

    Di-The surgery wasnt SO bad actually! I actually stopped taking the pain meds after 3 days since they were making me really sick. I am just taking a few ibuprofen every couple of hours for pain management. The hardest part is getting comfortable enough to sleep, and now I am working on bending it- which is a KILLER. I went to the surgeon on Thursday and we got it to bend to about 60 degrees and I was just about in tears- I have another appt on Monday and he wants me to be able to get to 90 degrees. UGH, so Ive been doing my excercises to work on the range of motion.

    So for Chardonnay. I hopped out of the truck today and snapped some quick pictures of her. She looks SO small now, like before I was thinking definately triplets, and now, most likely twins. Maybe the kids dropped?
    Her udder has aways to go and her ligaments are still there, but here are some pictures to hold you all over. :greengrin:

    Oh and we are hoping for a doeling to keep- and if her udder fills out nicely- a buckling that someone is interested in.
    Her udder is looking quite like her half sisters did before she kidded- Betty, who actually freshened with a GORGEOUS udder, my favorite FF of the year so far, so we have high hopes for Chardonnays udder too.

    Re: Chardonnay kidding soon! Day 138

    Oh my, the memories :GAAH: first you have to worry about bending it...wait till you have to make sure you can get it...straight! Hint: you put your foot on a platform of some kind and then a "weight" on your knee, kinda hard to explain.

    She's a pretty doe! Good luck!

    Well Chardonnay is at day 145 today- I saw her last night and her udder had filled quite a bit- but nowhere near ready and rock solid ligs.
    Hubby sent me a picture of her tonight and her udder has filled ALOT and he said her ligs were getting lower.
    Hes going to take me over there a little later tonight and I will get some pictures and take a good look at her.
    Babies pretty soon! :leap:

    Re: Chardonnay kidding soon! Day 145 today

    She kidded this afternoon with :boy: :girl:

    Once we evaluate the udder- her boy is sold as a buckling and we will be retaining the doeling.
    Im going to see them tomorrow sometime.

    Hubby is pretty sure the girl has blue eyes- but not sure about the boy - he couldnt tell for sure with the lighting.

    Cell phone pictures soon!
