They could possibly share a birthday with my sister.Well of course today might be the day. I’m gonna be gone for 8 hours. Her ligament are very hard to find. Like i have to dig dig. And her vulva is very swollen. No goo yet so I think it’s gonna be tonight or tomorrow during the day. I noticed her tail up while the other goats had theirs down since it’s cold. I didn’t feel ANY ligaments at fist but when I caught and tied her up they were slightly there. If she’s anything like her dam then it should be another 12-14 hours before kids arrive.
Alright. Her mom was by the book when she delivered. Except for it lasting a little longer than 12 hours. 16 to be exact. She was also very quite when pushing. Just little grunting noises. I’m hoping for the same with this girl. I hate when they scream. Pulls at my heart strings. Speaking of her mom, she is right behind her daughter. I’m thinking another 4 weeks and I’ll have more babies on the ground.Ligaments come and go right up till delivery sometimes.I had a doe deliver and I could feel her ligs an hour before… It sounds almost like she’s in prelabor which can last 12 hours or so. I’d plan on keeping a close eye on her tonight.
When you say “come and go” what exactly do you mean. Hers are almost normal it seems. At the moment. And Like I said they were gone this morning. Is that what you mean? I also bumped her. I could feel one baby back towards her udder and to the right. Felt like the back on the baby. Her right side has dropped dramatically. I know I already said that but it’s a lot more noticeable since i’m sitting in here with her.Ligaments come and go right up till delivery sometimes.I had a doe deliver and I could feel her ligs an hour before… It sounds almost like she’s in prelabor which can last 12 hours or so.

I once had twin sisters deliver a total of 5 babies in 5 minutes!Looks like both does are gonna try to kid at the same time.
