My new goat Molly is finally near. She's all hollowed out, full bag, yummy mucos plug this morning while feeding and ligaments semi gone. Bad news: its raining here and expected to continue raining. She lives with two junior does and I planned on just kicking out the junior does when she went into labor but now I can't. All my pens are filled at the moment. Maybe she won't kid today or tonight. Rain is supposed to clear out tomorrow. This is actually the first time I ever got a chance to see the mucos plug :leap: I can see it hanging on the camera now. hmm... maybe it might be today????

Nothing yet, still sliming it up. All her ligs are gone, tail curved, sunken in all over her body. I watched her all night last night, went to work this morning hoping she would stay prego and she has. She did not clean up breakfast so I'm thinking tonight. Pray that she doesn't have them when I go to the doctors tonight :pray:

Thanks for the girl wish but a woman actually wants a boy and girl who they are possibly sold to already. So pray for a boy and girl this time, lol

I know its only been two days watching her like a hawk but she's driving me nuts :hair:
Still showing her mucous plug. Her pacing was short lived cause I quickly found out she was reacting to the goats outside. She actually stood in one place last night for two hours with her head down. This makes my bottle baby kitten ihappy cause it means she doesn't have to sleep in the crate. Lots of this :coffee2: to get thru work this morning so I don't do this :ZZZ:
:help:

Well hopefully she'll get the show on the road soon for you. They love to keep us guessing and make us go insane waiting!

This is the first time I ever have been able to see a mucous plug. My does before just lay down and begin contractions. If they ever showed loosing the mucous plug then I missed it but this one is now on day three loosing her plug. She is laying quietly now and has been for a couple hours. I was able to get a nap which felt good. How long have these mucous plugs lasted before kidding. I know Goat happy said a doe of hers went a month later but whats more common? I can about wrap my finger around her spine at her tail head and touch my other finger completely. Can goats hold off contractions like horses can but once they start they cannot stop them!
