I bought Cinderella a couple months ago, supposedly pregnant, but the lady didn't have an exact due date. She thought maybe July or August, so that's all I had to go on.
Obviously, it's going to be August or later.
She was with the buck (pictured) before I got her, but I don't know for how long. And she was penned with him for at least a month after I got her, but I never saw them acting "that way", so I assume she was already bred. She's not huge, but then I guess they don't all show as much, so I can't tell. I'm no good at feeling kids, so can't help you there.
The behind picture was taken about five days ago.

If you didn't see any breeding or have a due date, then you would have to consider that she could give birth any time from the last day the buck was in with her.

Forgot to mention she is six years old, has had kids before, singles and twins.And obviously she isn't at all bagged up yet, which makes me think it might be a lot longer than I was hoping.
I'm starting to wonder if she's even pregnant. Can anyone tell me??

Her udder hasn't even begun to fill yet.. :( I was really hoping she'd have kids in July.. but now I don't know if she's even pregnant. I don't think she looks it. I'm thinking I need to put her with the buck again and keep a close eye on her.

She doesn't really look pregnant to me, honestly. I would send some blood into BioTracking, just to make sure.

I would, but I'm broke right now. :D so I think I'm going to put her with the buck again and see what happens. :/ I guess maybe she didn't like him before??

I think maybe she was with him with other does as well, so maybe he just didn't get to her. :shrug:
I'm kind of mad, because that was half the reason I got her, because the lady told me she was pregnant. :( I want babies!

I'm considering begging to get the Biotracking test done, :p and I was just randomly wondering if anyone knows if the test could/would determine how far along she is, IF she is pregnant? And also, would they accept the blood sample in the syringe it was collected in, or would I have to get the red top tubes?

Ugh, no. I've had her with the buck, but her behavior is not exactly pointing either direction. I was too busy for a couple days to keep an eye on them, so I don't know what's going on. :GAAH!:

One day she was rubbing all over him, but he wasn't really paying any attention, so I don't know what to think. :shrug:

I think I heard that it gives an estimated due date. And yes, tubes are absolutely necessary.

I think maybe he bred her today!:D
I went out this morning, and they were sticking pretty close together- he was actually following her around, and she was letting him, though he didn't try to mount her. I thought maybe they were already "done". :shrug: I also noticed she had some white discharge.

I think he's starting to stink more, too; maybe he's coming into rut? could've been my imagination though.
So what do ya'll think? Would it be a waste to do the test now? Cause I wouldn't mind waiting 30 days, and then get the CAE done at the same time.

I'd wait 30 days and test. Sounds like they may have done the deed, but it's hard to tell.
