    I saw what looked like 3 or 4 on ultrasound. Multiples for sure. That was at around 30-45 days. Now they are too big to count.
    I saw 4 sacs. 3 for sure had little peanuts in them not sure on the 4th one.

    Thank you!

    I do have a question concerning Magic. She is only about 80 days along and has become a tad lethargic and off by herself. She seems to be laying down a lot and not coming in with the herd for food. Is it too early for pregnancy toxemia? She's huge already and I'm concerned. Temp was 102.2. FAMACHA is a 1. No bloating or signs of respiratory distress. No injuries or swelling in the legs. Hooves look great and are trimmed every 6 weeks. She will eat if i bring her in towards the food.

    Maybe her rumen is off, give probiotics and give fortified vit B complex SQ for 3 days minimum.

    Energy requirements of pregnant does are highest during the last 6 weeks of pregnancy, so I think it is too soon.

    I went ahead and treated her with probiotics and the SQ vit B complex and she seems back to her normal self. Up and eating without encouragement. Thank you!

    Poor Hanna is feeling a bit miserable in this heat. Can't say I blame her. I'm only 13 weeks pregnant but feel miserable as well lol. These pictures don't truly show how big she looks in person. Poor girl

    Congrats on your pregnancy! Yes..she does look miserable. The heat is brutal. A fan really helps..just moves the air ..to give her a liitle bit of comfort. I usually put.frozen water bottles in their water ..and where they lay down. Some of my girls snuggle up to the bottle. Some dont.

    Good so far, although Hanna does seem to be getting a bit sore on her feet. Hoping she will be fine for at least another 12 days. She has been slowly losing her mucus plug over the past couple days.

    And then there's Magic who is about as wide as she is tall with 2 months to go still. Hoping for a doeling out of her to keep this year! She is starting to bag up.

    Hope she will be OK.

    Do you think she may of been hit by another goat?
    I see her limping on the front right?

    Did you just trim her, she may have a stone bruise or has a sensitive hoof after trimming?

    No, she did this last year too right before she kidded. Started getting gimpy about 3 weeks out. Not sure if it is from the extra weight of the kids or what. No swelling in any legs and no injuries. Trimmed her a few weeks ago and her hooves look good. She seems more sore today than yesterday.

    If there are moms on here, remember right before you had your baby you got so uncomfortable you walked like a duck and baby liked kicking you in the lungs. Now times that by 3 or 4?
