I've bred all of my goats this year but none of them seem to be looking pregnant but I was wondering if this one is getting udders? She's a first-time if she got pregnant and should be about 70 days. I just can't tell if she's getting utters or if she just has large nipples lol.

I wouldn't really know. The first picture it certainly looks pouched a little but otherwise I would say no. And contrary to what the previous post said I have a 56 day first time doe that does have noticable utter development. Not huge by any means but very noticeable and much more ten your doe. However, unfortunately she may be miscarrying and I don't know if that might have anything to do with it in her case.

Ah, it's ok I guess. I'm sad of course but mostly because she is the only one we bred this year.

I've hear it both ways that first times will start to grow rapidly once pregnant and that they might not even develop noticeably until only days sometimes hours before kidding. I don't know which is true. I do know that my bred does teats where almost no existant until about 3 week's after being bred. That compared to her herd mate we bought who is a year younger and has always had noticable teats.

Cross my fingers for you though hopefully you'll have some kids in a few short months

Yeah, shes my last hope for a baby this year. My other three are most likely not prego. I want to wait and see until September tho. If not then I will send them up with the buck for a couple of months and maybe have kids in the spring next year :)

First timers are so hard, my opinion I don’t think they’re growing yet, but when I went through it I think I just looked so much that I convinced myself they were getting bigger then like 3 weeks before they were due it was a no brainer
