So I've had Lucy about a month, lady I got her from said she had been exposed but wasn't sure if she was pregnant. Said if she was she would be due end of March first part of April. I've never dealt with a pregnant goat so I'm clueless on how to tell without going to a vet. Please help. I'm attaching pictures of the sweet girl from today.

She looks it to me. But I'm not super experienced. Has her udder been growing? Has she been getting rounder with no change in grain? I have doe due end of March too.
At this point you should be able to feel them. I feel my girls babies every day : ) Feel in front of her udder, if she's pregnant it will feel hard, move your fingers around and press to see if you can feel them. Feel a little farther up the sides too, I can usually feel babies kicking.
Hopefully the more experienced people here will give their thoughts.

What gorgeous markings!

Yes, her udder indicates she is pregnant. I would guess more towards April.

Do you know what type of buck she is bred to? How old she is?

Be sure to get selenium into her!
She is 3 years old and bred to an ND. I'm attaching more pictures of her rear and of the dad if she is pregnant.
