This whole year has been complete goat fiasco for me which is only my second year owning Nigerian Dwarfs. I bred one doe who had a positive pregnancy test and then she either had a cloudburst according to a vet via phone, or was never pregnant. I didn't breed another doe and one day realize she was getting absolutely enormous. You know when you see them everyday, they don't change that much? Yeah. She went from tiny to large. I never got a blood pregnancy test but have done three urine pregnancy test, all have been positive. Because I didn't intentionally breed her I'm totally unsure of due date but based on her last recorded heat it should have been anytime between last Friday and Sunday. There was a shared fence line with 2 bucklings for awhile so not far fetched to think she's pregnant. Friday morning she starts hollering, having discharge (I got a photo of it when it started getting lighter which I'll attach), had really mushy loose ligaments, was having some random and irregular contractions, was licking me half to death, nesting -- everything to indicate she was in labor except her udder was still pretty small. I bought her in March and my breeder friend told me that she didn't bag up last time (as a ff) until about an hour before she went into labor so not to use that as an indicator. I sat with her all day and most of the night on Friday and by Saturday morning, the contractions had stopped, nesting and pawing had stopped yeah, everything except discharge. She still has discharge 4 days later though much lighter. She now just acts like all is well and she's not in labor. This would only be my third time kidding because I didn't breed my previous goats, and as you know, everyone is totally different. Now I'm starting to second-guess the urine pregnancy tests and my gut. I did test one of my 7 month old doelings and it was negative so I know the tests aren't always wrong -- they claim to be 97% accurate and I've always been spot on for me at least up until now maybe. Have you ever had a doe start and then stop pre-labor? There was no pushing and she's absolutely comfortable and healthy and fine now, but nothing. I guess I'm just trying to figure out if this is a case of false labor or heat? It doesn't make sense to me since she hasn't had a heat since May 5th and I'm probably just looking for a little reassurance because I have goat kidding PTSD (my favorite goat in the world died in February when a vet made fun of me when I said the 4th baby was stuck, refused to come convincing me that she was just struggling with the placenta and 5 days later I pulled the fourth dead baby out of her and she died four days later with a 5th still in her that we didn't know about). Anyway, I would love any feedback if anyone has any. Having only had two other experiences I'm super second-guessing myself. This first picture is Lily in April. Skinny and fit. This is Lily on Friday. And this was her discharge. It was actually heavier and whiter before this but she kept cleaning herself up and I didn't think to take a picture earlier on presuming she was just in labor. No odor or anything. These girls are so good at confusing me, lol. Oh, I should add, the reason I'm second-guessing myself is because she would wag her tail a bit. Not like she was flagging and only when she had copious amounts of discharge but none of my other girls have ever done that except when in heat. We have two young bucks on the other side of the garden maybe 200 feet away and I made a mental note of how silent they were that day. I had a doeling in heat a few days before and they were maniacs and another doe in heat over the weekend and again, they were screaming for her. I'm probably answering my own question but do you think she's pregnant? Have you ever had a doe have a false labor? Lastly, her udder is still a pretty small maybe softball sized but a little squishy. I only dried her up two months ago though after her first positive pregnancy test and both of my other toes had huge udders when they went into labor. I can get a new pic. I haven't wanted to feel her too much to potentially stimulate lactation but haven't checked it today. I feel dumb for asking but it's making me crazy.
