    she is walkin around and she stops and does what looks to me like pushing here are a few pictures of her backside sideways and stopping to do what seems to look like pushing and she is spaced out



    i can feel kidd but she has stopped dialating
    she has only dialated to about a half dollar size
    she has been acting like she is in labor for 2 weeks & loosing white stuff about a week and her teets are leaking.what ever it is its driving my billy nuts

    first time she was prego i didn't know until she fell off a toy and hit her belly and broke her water and almost lost the baby. so thats why i worried she had been acting like she is having contraction but there is no progress is there anything i can give her or do to help her?

    Wash your hands and go in to see if she is open ..and if there is a kid there..

    if there is...she is just starting to kid or having difficulties...and needs help... :hug:

    Looks like she is in labor by the look of the tail head, the udder, and the swelling of the vulva

    She definately looks very close! If she goes down and starts to consistently push with no results in 20 minutes, I would go in with 2 fingers to see if there is a kid stuck....she's likely just getting started though, don't let her go beyond an hour of hard labor, she'll tire and won't be able to help you IF you need to reposition and pull.

    Once the "first bubble" breaks, the kid bubble is normally directly behind it, usually takes just 10 to 20 minutes of deep pushing/contractions to get the kids head thru, sometimes it is just minutes and sometimes the water doesn;t break before the baby bubble appears. I wouldn't let a doe push longer than 20-30 minutes without a kid appearing before I would go in to see if the kid is positioned wrong.

    I would. It will take 15-20 minutes usually...just gently pry it open, this should stimulate contractions too... good luck!
