This is my doe Ana she is a FF. I estimated a due date of Feb 22nd at 150 days but she was with the buck before that too. Last week Monday her udder was about to explode and she started acting funny so I brought her into the garage due to -30° Temps. That was last Friday already. The past weekend she dropped but her bag wasn't as tight. She has been pawing for a week now, pushing her head against walls, havinghsmall amounts of her plug come out, and has become territorial. She has randomly gets what looks like contractions where her back raises but she goes to the left and kinda walks on tippy toes for a second. Today udder is back to being super tight- I can feel the babies inside her moving. Stomach is tight and sensitive to touch. More discharge. My aunt is a vet and had me stick two fingers in. I got them in all the way and just felt soft inside. Im not sure what to think. I just want healthy kids already!! 20180207_165019.jpg 20180207_165019.jpg 20180207_171107.jpg

    I'm nervous but thank you. Hopefully she kids soon as I've never been so stressed in my life.

    She looks pretty close to me. Watch for her teats to fill.

    This is my little Hildy. :) She is a Mini-Nubian, bred to a blue eyed Mini-Lamancha. I did NOT want her bred - she was only 6 months old when the buck jumped the fence - but, here we are.
    I only realized she was pregnant about a month ago! Here is the link to the thread I started: https://www.thegoatspot.net/threads/oh-no-is-she-pregnant.195179/

    My doe unfortunately is younger than I'd like her to be for kidding. She is about 11months old.

    No real changes. Ligaments are still there but seem to be more sunken in and not as noticeable. I spent an hour with her earlier and she had two contractions where she was standing and went in a "C" form. Udder is pretty tight but a lil room left and teats aren't filled yet.
