I’m so sorry :(
It’s hard to tell if it could have been prevented or not. One could write a book on EVERYTHING a goat could abort over, from everything to lack of a certain mineral, maybe even too much of one, ate something she souldnt have, abortion diseases, stress, trauma (got butted) and then just flat out fluke. So as hard as it is to do, I wouldn’t stress about it. Give her loves and I would just chalk it up to crap happens. If you start having others abort then I would start digging. If you absolutely must try to find a answer you could send in for a necropsy but I honestly wouldn’t right now

Ok now she has a full udder .... idk what to think !! Could that one have been just underdeveloped? Could she still have one in there that needs to come out and is healthy??

No way to tell, except maybe ultrasound.
However, she may have just formed an udder because she did give birth, even though it was underdeveloped and dead, and her body is still triggered to produce milk in response.

I had a doe do this this year. She aborted one baby. I kept and eye on she was fine afterward but she made an udder and it never really went down. About a month later, she kidded triplets. I'm still not sure why she aborted the one, might have been that there just wasn't room for quads.
