    Crescent is due any time...but she is one of those lose ligs/has ligs, posty/not posty, acts like she is in labor/guess what...no labor! She is very 'open', and her udder is growing, but not full yet...don't know if she bags up right before or if she is one of 'those' who doesn't fill until after....

    Here are some pics...anyone have a guess on when she will kid?? These were taken today....

    Hmmm...due anytime? What day is she on?

    Not really wide, but deep so I am thinking twins and in the next 2-3 days.

    Her 'wide' has seemed to drop over the last few days...yet another reason that I'm anticipating. I feel them, so I know they are in there...!

    She is mushy around the tailhead this morning, I can barely feel ligs, but her udder isn't full. I e-mailed the person I got her from and asked about previous kidding history, but haven't heard anything from them yet. Going to have to go back and check dates...I thought I knew when she was due...but either I'm wrong, or she is going to have the longest gestation in history...!

    It's always a guessing game as well as a learning experience when you have an experienced doe freshen for the first time with you.....they have a secret, and they know you will go nuts trying to guess! She knows what she's doing and she knows how stressed you are.

    Updated Crescent pics...babies soon???

    Lost her mucus stream (yes, I said stream because it went from her rear to the ground!) three days ago. Hopefully soon. Should be on about day 145-150...pen bred so...? Yes, I've learned my lesson...no more pen breedings! I ALMOST think that she is going to go soon...the last pic looks like she has hollowed out a little...ligs mushy and udder is more firm...but who knows!

    Updated pics..

    I am having the exact same problem you are!! My doe is displaying exactly the same things your doe is (although no goo stream, just bits of goo)... And mine was also pen bred so :shrug: who knows when she's really due. The earliest date would have been Valentine's day... obviously THAT didn't happen... the ultrasound the breeder provided me with gave a window of 15 days... which means no good sleep from now until she kids!

    Is the "open"ness a sign she is getting close? My doe is definitely very open and I was wondering if that's like a human mom dilating...

    Anyway, I hope your Crescent and my Emily get down to business SOON, so we can both get a good night's rest... and have lots of fun with the little ones :)

    Oh boy....I'd have to say that Crescent has at least one more day to torture you! Her udder has filled very nicely asnd her tailhead has dropped...but she's not quite there, she's not posty yet and I foresee that udder doubling in size.

    Okay...I think she is fat with a curved spine, uterine tumor and a vaginal infection. That would explain it right??

    Thought she in labor this morning, and ran out to the barn after I heard yelling on the baby monitor...
    Bonnie gave me a doeling, but still no Crescent babies. Will post Bonnie baby pics on another thread. I give up on the FAT girl!
