    Re: Luna's waiting thread Update

    I think we're close. She is sunk in, has the hooked tail look. And she keeps arching her back and streching alot. The babies are moving like crazy. Didn't get a pic with her tail hooked cause shes a little nervous when I'm out there, so I'm trying to give her space and just calmly give her treats. Shes not eating alot, eats her feed but not so much hay. Do you think its real soon? I have a DR appointment tomorrow that must be cancled today if I should stay home.

    It's kind of hard to tell in that picture but it does look like the babies have dropped. Lots of stretching is a good sign... she's trying to help the babies move into position. And arching the back could actually be early contractions, does it look like contractions to you?

    Sounds like she is getting close.

    I dont believe its contractions, its not often. She does seem uncomfotable laying or standing. She seems to shift her weight alot.

    Re: Luna's waiting thread Update: Labor soon?

    She is up and down up and down. Stretch stretch stretch. A few contractions where she looked like she may cry out. How long can this go on before bubble appears?

    In the pics she eeps laying her head on her belly, then during one moment looking like a contraction she rolled right to her side stiff as a board. I'm exhausted, hope I dont have to spend another night in the barn. Its cold. :(

    No I did not go in. Kids are moving lots. Shes not pushing. In fact nothing is happening now. Shes eating alot and WOW drinking alot. I have the monitor on, and will continue to peek in tonight. How frustrating. From the way she was acting I thought for sure things would progress.

    Yep....when you start to see the discharge turn more "snotty" and may have a tinge of red or pink to it, she's very close.

    is there any way you can re-schedule that dr's appointment? to me she looks like she is going to kid any moment - it sounds - and looks - like she is in early labour. Those are definitely contractions with her rolling over like that!

    That was on Thursday LW. The goo started yesterday. Nothing really happening at this point. Babies still moving, but not as often. Shes eating and spending most of her time laying down.

    I need your expertise!! Only been in the barn for feedings. Listening on the monitor. Dont believe anything is happening. What do you think? Looks to me like she should be in labor, going by all I've been told. :sigh:
