    Lyric seems to be in labor, but Im not sure, Is this just her water breaking? She is having bags of fluid.. one is a large bag of amber fluid and the other is a small clear bag. Also clear stream coming from her. I didnt see her have hr kid last year. Is this normal? Never seen it before.

    You need to go in, the kid is not presenting right.

    The clear bag is her water and the red bag is the one the kid is in. If your seeing a lot of it then the kid is probably not in the right position. If she has been pushing without progress for a long time then you need to go in. Just make sure you clean up your hands real good before going in.

    So is it like placenta previa? The "placenta" coming out before the kid?



    She doesnt seem in distress

    I agree with Runaround. Scrub up your hands, use some lubricant and go in. Better to check on things then let them go to far with a bad outcome (I speak from experience here!). You can do it!

    This sounds normal to me, but I am a newbie . My doe had the same thing clear fluid and amber fluid then after about ten min. she started pushing 5min. later kid number one!

    It wont hurt to at least go in a couple finger to find out if there are hooves and a nose present or not. The bags are normal, but I've never had a doe just walk about with them hanging out like nothing was happening unless the kid/kids were presenting wrong.

    The kid was not positions right. Its head was way out of place. I went in there and had a look around and the doe really was screaming her head off. That was the most crazy intense amazing thing... had to go in a few times before but this time I thought I was just saving mom, the kid was just still... but I slowly pulled out an alive buck that looks just like mommy, shes cleaning him now... will post pics in a few... my heart is racing like crazy!!

    :clap: :clap: Glad you got him out alive! :stars: :stars: Great Job! :hug:

    Don't forget to put her on antibiotics now and I'd probably go in again just to make sure there are no other kids coming. Or you can bump her to feel if there are any others.

    Congratulations! Keep an eye on her. There might be another kid yet. If she starts pushing again that means there is more to come.

    Well... it's good experience atleast! I try to remind myself "what did I learn" after every difficult birth.
