    Congratulations! Wonderful news of your own pregnancy!!!
    As for Pams pooping, it might be more a sign of having had a second supper than a sign of kidding!?! :heehee:

    Good luck to all three of you!

    I got pranked by my goats last night. It was around midnight and I was having a dream about checking Pam's ligaments (can you tell I'm nervous about this whole thing?!) and I heard goat noises. I realised they were actually happening and not in my dream, so raced downstairs and over to the kidding stall. Shone the torch in and there was Pam, sound asleep. Hm. Moved the light over to the paddock and there was Darrell, making love noises to Aroma. At midnight. So romantic :oohlala::ponder:

    Anyway, safe to say it is morning and Pamela has not had any children through the night LOL

    Poor mama is feeling it today. Just went and sat with her for a while and she's hovering at the door, going from wagging her tail, pressing her head and shifting around uncomfortably. I did put her back out in the paddock this morning and she immediately just went into her shelter and stood there on her own - while everyone else was eating, which is definitely not like her. I left her out for a while but she stayed put so I ended up bringing her back inside.

    Other than that no real physical differences. These last few days are driving me nuts! LOL. Day 144 today. pam headpressing day 144.jpg pamela 144.jpg

    Man, I know right! The poor love. I'm almost a little bit worried the kid(s) will struggle with eating. Her teats are HUGE and so low down to the ground...and these babies will be half Nigerian (well, technically 37.5%) so I'm a little worried they won't be able to feed easily. Will be keeping a close eye for sure!

    We are definitely getting closer! This morning when I went in to check on her, I really had to dig down deep to feel those ligaments. They were still there, but just barely! She was also exceptionally talkative and is back to wanting to be stuck to me like glue, after about a week of not wanting to be close. I've been sitting in the kidding stall a lot with her and she's all over me like a bad rash, rubbing her head on my face nonstop.

    She's also pawing the ground a lot but not laying down - she'll dig for a while, then turn around and dig someplace else, then pace back to the first spot and dig some more. No mucous yet and when I checked her just now I think her ligaments have gone, but I could also just be telling myself that because I really want her to be having them, LOL.

    Definitely more restless now and is up, down, and everywhere digging and pacing, bleating softly and kind of just staring off into space LOL. Poor girl. I hope it's soon, for her sake! Her udder is so unbelievably full. pam 145.jpg pam day 145.jpg Pamela day 145.jpg

    i sure hope it’s go time! she’s been laying for a while just chewing her cud, but bleating constantly and also sitting up and nosing right back at her udder. she just stood and had what looked to be two big contractions and has just laid back down again and kicked her back leg right out trying to get comfy. Poor girl - if this isn’t it i feel so bad for her for the next couple of days!!
