    Hi everyone,

    I have a doe who has decided to deliver today! I knew the due date was soon, but I'm thinking she's quite a bit early. She went posty this morning, and the first bubble burst about 4 o'clock. She wasn't really having what I'd call active contractions. And still isn't. She is streaming a little, but she's been doing that since about 6 o'clock this evening. I think most of what I am seeing is the first sac that burst, hanging. She pushed once, earlier, and I saw a little bit of a bubble, but then she just stopped! I don't know if I disrupted her or what, because she's generally a very easy going doe. I'm not sure if I need to just leave her alone or if I need to go in. I don't want to go in if I don't have to. Ideas??? Please???

    The bad thing is I am going to have to try to do whatever by myself... don't know if I can find someone to help. :( Vet is out of the question--45 minutes away and super hard to reach.

    was she able to feel anything when she went in? Was she able to0 move the baby at all? Kidding can be so stressful! (on the owner)

    She needs to wake hubby up and get stuff cleaned and ready to go in. Doe is only giving little pushes every once and a while.
    The funniest thing is I was sound asleep and couldn't figure out why I had set my alarm on my phone. Once I finally got the sound off I realized it was someone calling me. :doh:

    Well, I guess you're up for a while! hope all goes okay.

    Sounds like the baby is just tumbled up in there. Sometimes, I've found, if the doe doesn't want to push, once you untangle the babies, they'll got down to work.

    Ok.. I am TOTALLY confused!!! I went in with hubby holding her. She laid down... lots of crying. I DO NOT FEEL ANYTHING!!!
    Nothing at all!!! I started looking at what is left and I swear it's placenta! I went in twice. :( I bounced her and I don't feel anything. She is a really deep doe, and I am new at this, so I hope I'm not missing anything...

    How far did you go in? Are you sure she didn't drop a kid somewhere?

    Question... how FAR in do I need to go??? Maybe I didn't go in far enough. I was in about 6-8 inches and I rotated my hand around, pushing while she was pushing, trying to feel something, anything. The only thing I felt at all was what felt like a wall... I'm guessing the uterine wall. No bright red blood or brown blood--just pink. And what is hanging from her is long and lumpy looking..

    On a really long doe I went in up to my elbow once. What you describing does sound like placenta...

    Did you feel another bubble in there? You can call me again if you want.

    I have her isolated in a corner of the barn. She's been there since about 6. If she delivered one, it would have had to have been before I put her up. That's always possible, I guess, but good grief! I don't know where she would have had it, because she's been in the barn all day long. There are no hiding places. I hope she didn't dispose of it or something. Do they do that? If they are preterm?

    The only thing I felt felt like a squishy wall. I angled upward and kinda curved while going in. I hope she's just not dilated well enough or something. ARGHHH... I know she will have little contractions when passing the placenta. It's possible that's what she's doing now. Ever had the placenta present first? Even then, I should feel SOMETHING at the other end, but I don't. There were some little pieces of pink, flat looking tissue that came out on the glove, too. Not sure what that is...

    If you got your whole hand in then she's dialated enough. You could try going deeper. I know I checked a doe once, didn't feel a thing, she started pushing again, so I went in again and there was a kid.
