    Not to be negative, but with you being new, a very young doe, the risk to the mom and kids, this is not a good scenario at all going forward. Find a vet (you will need one at some point in time) and at least do a blood test to see if she is open or pregnant. You risk losing your doe and her kids at this age.

    Took her to the vet and got an ultrasound. No babies that we can see... although she could be a couple days outside the window.

    She has to be atleast 30-60 (i forget exactly) days bred to see the kids in ultrasound

    She could be 35- 60 days pregnant, so I think we would have seen if she had kids in there. The vet said there was a small chance it was too soon, but most likely she's not pregnant.

    Blood test is your best bet to know for sure. Its cheap and easy to do.

    I'd be concerned this vet was willing to ultrasound and not pull blood?

    Well, we are way past the latest possibility of a due date and no sign of babies, I think we are in the clear!
