    Hera's udder has gotten huge today, ligaments have been gone all day and she's getting really restless now. Silent as a mouse, not a sound and she's usually a talker. I think there'll be babies tonight or tomorrow. :D

    Well she's not doing a whole lot. I imagine she'll wake me around 5 or 6 am kidding. She is having some minor contractions but nothing leading me to believe it'll be real soon. Her udder has gotten so big that she's having a hard time getting comfy. I'll try to get some pics if I remember when I take Grant his bottle.

    Re: Hera's close to kidding soon!!!! No ligaments!!!

    Yep Hera and Zeus are littermates out of quads. They look almost identical only she has blue-eyes. Her udder is really strutted now. She's not big so I think a single and I guess it is possible twins. Still thinking a single. She's bred to Rue as well and he has been giving me doelings so I can only pray the trend continues! :girl:

    I'm going to head to bed. She's in no hurry though is having mild spaced out contractions. Hubby will be in around 2:30 and he will wake me should she be up to something. Otherwise she'll wake me or I'll report in the AM after I get up and get my daughter ready for school.

    Night :ZZZ:

    She kidded!!! She woke me on the monitor screaming. It was just after midnight so I hadn't been asleep but an hour. She gave us a beautiful single doeling. She's mostly white with black legs and some chamoise spots.

    Hey Stacey! I'm starting to feel like you did last year seeing so much chamoise. ;) Hehe!

    I'll get pictures tomorrow. I'm exhausted and have to get up early to take Hannah to school and Matthew to therapy. Hubby will be home in a few minutes.

    I'm running on 3 hours sleep. Yes she was a big kid so when I got down there (which wasn't really rushed) she had a hoof and a nose sticking out. I pulled the leg out to straiten the shoulder and felt for another foot, no foot. She had to work a little but she got her out. She's a really good sized single though, I wish those first timers would have at least twins.

    Congratulations Ashley. I am so happy for you. And she presented the exact same way Pookey's first girl did. Too funny. Can't wait for pictures. I told you I was sending girl vibes your way.
