    I made a big mistake . . . . :hair:.
    Gypsy isn't due the 12th! She's due the 8th!
    So I went down to check on her and Saca and she has no ligs, her baby is kicking furiously, she's all sunken in the hips, she's biting at her sides.
    Her teats are starting to come down and fill up.
    Please pop soon Gyps----I need a kid right now to snuggle with . . . . :cry:

    thanks. Her udder is now almost twice the size it was at the time the picture was taken, an hour or two or three ago. . . i was down in the barn getting everything ready (again....).
    She is very vocal, no ligs, building a steady udder and dripping white goo.
    Unfortunately, I cannot keep her baby, but I am hoping for a beautiful kid to cuddle with!
    Will take birthing pix. . . . .
    UNless of course, she changes her mind, sticks to the doe code, and leaves me with a :? expression . . . .

    Sounds like you have another one getting close! She could have them anytime starting in a few days if she is due on the 8th :thumb:

    Gypsy is sounding as though she'll go "early" in her due dates! I hope she doesn't make you wait beyond 150!

    Nothing yet. . . . no ligs, getting posty, grumpy, and eating like there is no tomorrow. Very vocal, and her udder is growing by the hour.

    Re: Here We Go Again . . . . Gypsy, day 145, Q here!

    :GAAH: :hair: :coffee2: :hammer: :help: :hammer: :hair: :mecry: :GAAH:

    What does this say to you about my condition? :wink:

    No ligs.
    Tight udder.
    Temperamental brat. . . .
    Laying down alot . . .
    Still dripping and her tailhead is starting to come up, so I am thinking tomorrow night or day 147.

    It's day 145 her due date is in three days.
    I am kind of worried as the kid (s) is up tight under her left ribcage . . . .balled up and high. . .
    kid getting into position or ----?

    Left? Are you sure you aren't feeling her rumen? Kids are supposed to be on the right side.

    She is just making you wait and having fun with it. :sigh: :hug:

    It was the left side. I made sure. And I could feel the head. . . .

    The left side of the goat, when facing the same direction as the goat, is the rumen. The babies are on the right.


    Hope she has a safe kidding. :thumb: The wait is the hard part! Lol

    Left side ruman, right side kids---but the left side is hard and firm and when I bounced it something pushed against it (shaped and just the right size of a kid's head) I did this three times, and even stood beside her and felt it to make sure it was the left side. :shrug: *and I know it was the left side because my manger is on the left side of the pen and I had her up against it.* really worried now. I will take some pix of the 'ball' tomorrow. :sigh:

    Re: Gypsy, day 145 Hard ball on the left?

    eh, Sonrise Farm, the kids are positioning. It's fairly normal to find body parts every which way at this time :greengrin:

    yes as Katie said -- it is normal at this stage of pregnancy to feel kids on both sides. Once they are past the 4 month mark I have felt kids on both sides.
