    Am I cruel to start a waiting thread now??
    I've got 4 does due the end march/early april. I am super excited!! :leap:
    All are bred to my pygmy buck:

    Olive, 3yo Nigi/pygmy cross 2nd freshener. Day 132(?) Due 3/27. Kidded last year with a single buckling. Long & Deep...maybe twins?

    Phantom, Nigerian dwarf 4year old freshener. Day 129. Due 4/1. Kidded twice? with previous owner.... once with twins by a huge BOER buck :shocked:

    Misty--FF, day 125. Nigerian dwarf. Fairly small. ADORABLEEEE :)

    Snowflake 3yo FF. Day 110?? (hard to settle; run with buck). I think she's at least 100days in though, because she is developing a udder. I THINK she's due 2nd week april.

    None of the does are very wide; all are very deep though. So I'm thinking singles maybe small twins for everybody....

    NOW, to convince my brother to lend me his camera.... :chin:

    Olive is day 136-137 today!!
    Her baby's hoof was poking out her side this morning!! It is so awesome to feel goat babies kicking! :greengrin:
    Her udder is bigger--I think about grapefruit sized.
    I've got to calm down...calm down.... :leap: :leap: :leap:
    I think she's gonna kid either on 3/19 or 3/24 (both days that I will be gone the greater part of the day)... :roll:

    Phantom's udder is bigger too--she's on day 132...surprisingly, her ligs are looser than Olive's...I wonder if they'll both kid at the same time... :p

    right now though I've got to beat back some worms that have decided to sneak up on the does :GAAH:

    Haha too cute!
    I love baby movements too! I made it a habit to feel everyone's bellies when they started to settle down after evening grain, so I could feel the little ones dancing around in there :)
    Our last pregoo doe is due in around 6 weeks and I've been feeling movement for the past few days, and it still amazes me as it did the first time I felt movement in our first does :)

    Olive is now 144. Ligs still hard, but a little looser than a few days ago. She'll probably kid on Wednesday/early Thursday morning...maybe 1am will do?

    Phantom is 139days. Her ligs are looser--I'm thinking she might go this upcoming weekend.

    The others:
    Misty 135days. Her udder is so round! Her baby is REALLY active. Her whole side ripples whenever it kicks!

    Snowflake may be 131days, but her udder is pretty small...so maybe she was bred later...sadly, I found out this week she has CL. :tear:

    hopefully, some healthy kiddings & kids will cheer me up.
