    I kind of used all the memory on my camera for Claribelle, but here are a couple pics of my Lyla. :) I haven't done "the clip" yet so you can't see much of anything. . .

    Baby guesses? Looks like twins to me. I have so many people wanting wethers so I wouldn't mind boys. :) I also have someone interested in a doe though, soooo. :) Wouldn't it be nice if she gave me triplets? ;)

    Well, today is day 144 and she looks bigger, more uncomfortable, and kinda fussy.

    I will try to get some pics tomorrow or Saturday.

    Re: Lyla, Day 145 - Ligs Gone, Udder Full, Early Labor!!

    Early labor is here!!!! Ligs are gone, udder is tight, and she is fussy! Yippeee! Hoping for babies by the end of the day and a healthy delivery!!

    I just went and talked to her, consoling her. I told her that almost 15 months ago, I watched her be born, wiped her nose, and helped her nurse! I just think that is too cool! :) I know a lot of you are so used to that, but she really feels like my "daughter." :)

    The rest of the afternoon, she spent eating and resting kind of. . . . now she is getting down to business. Stringy goop about 1.5 inches. Saw a couple pushes but not real active labor, yet. Getting ready to go check on her again. I am :pray: and :pray: for a quick and easy delivery!!! I'm so nervous on the inside but I am being really quiet around her.

    Re: Lyla, Day 145 - Ligs Gone, Udder Full, Early Labor!!

    Well, she didn't make me sleep in the barn but I didn't get a whole lot of sleep, obviously. It is 5am here and I've been awake on and off all night.

    Anywho, Lyla started really pushing at 3am. She'd been having small contractions throughout the night and I was really freaking out inside thinking she was moving too slow. So, 3am I hear her scream (left my window cracked; my room is right close to the barn). I called to Lydia and ran outside. She was pushing really hard for about 10 minutes when I saw what I thought were two hooves. . . nope, just one big one. The kid was presented correctly but just HUGE! So, I helped pull the baby out. I just made sure that the head was there before pulling. There was no room to get the head but I just hoped it would follow well.

    Picked baby up after Lyla finished cleaning and said to Lyd, "how much you want to bet this baby cow is a boy?" - flipped her over and it's a GIRL!!! :girl: !!!! :stars: After all that worry, I'm just happy it's a girl. :) I might just have to keep her. ;) She is a beautiful golden color and may have faint chamoisee markings. Looks like she might have blue eyes but I'm not positive yet.

    Lyla worked so, so hard that she prolapsed her rectum a little bit. I've never had that happen so I called Victoria (thanks so much Victoria!!!) - she walked me through dealing with that. So, momma and baby are doing fine. I bounced her and didn't feel anymore. She was working on passing the placenta when I left.

    I gave Lyla and baby some Arnica for healing and Rescue Remedy. Starting Lyla on antibiotics later today.

    So, that's the story. :) Pics are coming later today when the baby girl is all dried off. Oh, baby girl weighed about 4 lbs. at birth so Lyla did pretty good for having a big baby girl.
