    My real question is should I go to work or not?

    Here is the deal, I don't know for sure when Cheyenne is do. I have kept notes, but I don't know for sure the day she was serviced.

    Well she is HUGE, so I brought her in last night and it was rainy this morning and she looked very content so I left her in. She has been just laying there in the stall. She also had not really eaten much of dinner so I thought today maybe the day. So I checked on her earlier and she was all of a sudden more restless. She was bleeting, and pawing. I saw with her for awhile and she arched her back like she was pushing. I sat down with for awhile, but then she just laid down again and is eating a little hay and just laying there. She has the sunken in sides like the babies are dropped and but it much calmer. I can stay home but don't want to if I don't need too. I don't want to take advantage of my bosses generosity either. Does it sound like it will be really really soon? I can post pic when my batteries recharge.

    Can you feel her ligaments? the ones from her spine to her pins? She does look a bit hollow on the back side but she is very thick furred so hard to say.

    She is VERY fuffy- Ligaments are soft, and have dropped away.


    The think I was really wondering about what what looked like contractions.

    Oh and her udder is filling and has been for several weeks. It is not really full but she is pygmy goat and is a FF

    You would be surprised at how much a FF pygmy udder will fill! My late Dolly's FF she was huge! Her udder looked the size of a soccerball and VERY tight! She gave me twin girls at that time :hug:



    Her cha cha looks tight and tucked....I noticed that with my girls this time, instead of swollen they were puckered right before delivery. Hope all is going well and she has an easy delivery of :girl: :girl:

    Good news, She didn't have her kids while I was at work. Bad New, she still has not had her kids. Just sits there like an loaf of bread dough that just keeps rising. Hopefully tomorrow morning. That is what I am hoping for now.

    Thanks for the :girl: :girl: I'll just keep :pray: all night :greengrin:
