    My doe may or may not be pregnant. I have ordered a P-Test. Pictures attached!

    This is why I think she may be pregnant:
    - Her stomach is getting big fast
    - Her udder is starting to grow into last years kidding size
    - She's pawing and laying down A LOT
    - She's bigger on her right side (which I heard where the kids usually hang)
    - Her vulva is swelling (bigger than my other does vulva)
    - Her intact son is 8 mo and has been in the same pen as her until last week (due to pen not being finished.)
    - I can feel a kid-sized head in doe, when I push/rub it does away
    - She's larger in the belly compared to my other doe

    Reasons to think she's not pregnant:
    - She's a fat girl because I spoil her! (She's healthy! ;))
    - I have never seen my buck get into the mood with her

    Last pic is of my other doe

    If her buck kid has been with her all this time, it is very likely she is preggo.

    She was bred by her son.

    She is most definitely bred. It’s not unheard of bucks breeding successfully at 8-12 weeks.
