    I have two dates that Ellie could have been bred. First date which would have put her due June 7th, and second date would mean she's due June 28th.

    Looking at the pictures from Fri. 6/12-day 155, do you think she's a little overdue (today is 158), or do you think June 28th is her actual due date?

    She seems her usual self, temp. on Sat. 6/13 was 102.5, and no brown discharge. I am not overly concerned, since she appears okay, but thought I would ask.

    First off, I REALLY like her color pattern! Second, I think she settled with her second date. Her pooch doesn't have that "close to delivery" look to it and her udder will fill even more in the next 2 weeks.

    I vote for the second date.

    Reasons:
    Not overly bagged
    Not overly big
    Not swollen
    No real lig softening
    Acting "normal"

    Thank you for the reassurances-sure does help. :) My girls who have already kidded, did not show a lot of the classic signs before kidding, so I appreciate having others remind me of things I may have forgotten.
