    Im new here, and i need help
    :help: I have a doe who is about 3 this is her first time kiddding, 4-5 days ago she started producing milk and had a slight discharge with some blood in it, she also had the goo string. She is really sunkin in, hasnt made much milk, (her mom didnt either her first kidding dont know if that matters we didnt even she was pregant until we saw the baby.) she has been getting lazy doesnt want to eat much only drinks a little, and she wants to be alone only to come out for a few minutes to see whats goin on then goes back to her house. Within in the last two days the baby has dropped i was able to feel it on her side now i can only feel it under her belly by her udder. she still has blood discharge when she pees and sometimes when she lays down, will her baby be soon, is there anything to do to help her, or will she wait until the middle of the ice/snow storm we have rolling in tommorrow night... :shrug: I gave her some mollases and corn syrup tonight to help keep her energy up its getting colder 60f yesterday 18f tonight great huh?

    Do you have an actual due date on her? It sounds like shes getting close. The Does code of honor states that she must do her kidding in the worst possible time and place. We are waiting on one ourselves and its blizzard conditions right now. Our doe has been leaking a clear/whitish goo for a month now. It changes to amber colored, blood streaked, back to clear, clear/whitish, amber etc... Her udder is not that big, think big grapefruit size. Hopefully she will go soon but she may wait until April. Is the goo string a fat ropey looking string or is it thin and drippy?

    First off welcome.. :wave:
    It may be soon... :greengrin:
    do you know her due date? Usually they start filing there milk in there udder 1 month prior to kidding.... but some wait until the last minute...or don't have much at kidding..
    Is her barrel big? from veiwing her from behind?
    can you get pics?
    she may have multiple kids inside and she doesn't have much room for food and water....
    the kids are also pushing on her bladder ...that is why she leaks....

    have you taken her temp?

    It was long not thick but not thin, i not sure how to describe it her momma never did any of this (i kinda liked it that way) :greengrin: her udders arent really big but her mom had two kiddings and she never produced alot of milk until the kids were here. from the top she looks starved where her sides sunk in, she doesnt like to be touched by her tail so i cant get a good feel on her ligs. but the baby has dropped, within the last 2 days, how long after the kid drops before she has it...will the mollasses help her with energy if she doesnt want to eat? she did this to us after she first started discharge, we put up then we out to check on her she looked at me like umm can you let me out what i do now, then i went out today a day later and shes laying around not doin much of anything. today it looked like she was having contractions but it was time to eat so she got up and...forgot...to have the baby...? :shrug:

    if it was August she should have been due in December - January. If it was September that the deed was done it would be January -February. She is ready to go any day now.

    the bloody discharge has me a bit concerned but if she isn't showing signs of pain or discomfort besides ready to be done with pregnancy then I would wait it out a couple more days. But I would have a vet on stand by just in case she has difficulties.

    She sounds like she still has a few days to go. I honestly don't know about the Molasses water so others will have to advise on that. I think you are in the same situation as we are. We don't have an ACTUAL due date on ours either, just a guesstimation on when to expect things.

    Sounds to me that she is getting restless and close to delivery.

    What breed is she?

    Pics would definately help

    Do you have a temp on her?

    Molassas water is great - is she eating at all?

    How is she doing? To me it sounds like she will be going any day. I would watch her and offer her some calcium in t he form of tums if you have them, or crush up some calcium pills if you have them and let her eat what she wants.

    Keep a eye on her and make sure that she is drinking. I would bet that she is waiting for this storm to come then you will have beautiful babies on the ground.

    Look at kelebek post about the baby. She made a great looking sweater for her baby out of a sock. Something you might want to do if it is going to be that cold.

    Keep us posted on the progress.

    OH By the way WELCOME GLAD YOU FOUND US. :wave:

I lost both momma and baby, her mommas gonna miss her where ever she was momma was and vicaversa, her momma stayed by her side, though out this whole thing, I will miss her as i only had three girls and 1 boy, i could even tell you who was hollerin by the sould of the maaaa. Her momma had 2 kiddings with out even a sign, just go out and you see something little run by, but not her.
