I have a nanny that this would be her first baby she should be due around October 30. She does not seem to be stressed or have a care in the world however today when she went potty I noticed that along mucusy string came out its hanging there and is about a foot long it has a dark tint to it. She is my first to ever be pregnant ..... ..... not sure if I should be worried or if this is normal she does not have a bag

If what your seeing is her plug coming out and your sure about her due date then she is aborting :( can you be off on your dates??? Keep a eye on her there is nothing you can do if she is aborting :(

Sounds close... Is her udder tight, and shiny? Can you pinch any skin on her udder?

How are her ligs on the tail? Any contractions? Her back will likely arch up or get tense during contractions. Pawing at the ground, laying down then getting up to paw again as well as light noises to her belly are all good signs of labor. Just watch her.

She was up and down all night. .. nothing has happened. She has been very vocal and seems irritated with the cats if they come near

It seems as if her but has fallen away. Kinda sunk in on the hip and keeps her tail up laid on her back.

You may need to go in and check that there isn't a malpositioned kid. If a kid is not in the right position, she won't push.
