Hello, I have a couple of questions.
1. My boer was exposed on August 19- 22, as to what buck owner has told me. I took my does to her around Aug 15 and they stayed there intill Aug 30. One of the two does aborted her baby due to idk. But she is fine and healthy. Other doe she has me quesaing... Jan 6 th she started to kick around and make her nest, started to pant, and she was up and down, Do goats get Braxton Hicks? Like humans?? We took out for a walk and she was fine the next day. She had clear mucus discharge for the next week and still mucus today. Jan 12 same thing we take for normal walks everyday. All my goats get there walk in. Even the billy. Yesterday we noticed her tail is soaked... splashing all over when I go and check. White mucus with very light tan is sticking out. So I went to watching her constantly every two hours. Today she is just laying there.... chilling... can some one help with a better due date then what I was given? She is pregnant and has two sacks because of ultrasound. The photos are starting off from Saturday- up intill yesterday. The ones in field and by my other goats are starting off Saturday, the ones in red pen enclosed pen are from two days ago.

On a150 day pregnancy..you doe would deliver Jan 16- 19. So to me..her body is preparing for kidding. Stretching, mucus, is normal. Is this her first? Ive had a doe go 160 days...some 145. Just watch her. The pawing, then getting up. Pawing then laying down...is a pretty good sign they in labor. But alot of amber colored discharge means she is getting close.

Yea, you are definitely close. I would think any day now, and surely no more than a week. Be sure to give her lots of extra nutrition for those babies!
Yes, she has her own grain, minerals loose, she loves kale and lettuce so I always have that in the goats fridge. So now I just wait. She loves to be with me. She was always attached to me since she was small.
