I have a nanny named Gracie who is 5 month pregnant but i'm not sure her exact due date. I went online to look for signs of labor on Thursday when I noticed her stretching a lot and wagging her tail funny, I looked and there was mucous but I don't understand the ligament check. They are softer then my other nanny, Goober, but she is preggers also, we think she is due a few weeks after Gracie. Gracie is hard as a rock on one side of her other with nothing in the other and her udder is tiny, we don't know what breed she is and we think this is only her second time having a baby. Thursday I swore she was having contractions but then she stopped. She was eating and pooping normally all day. This morning before work she didn't eat normally and she looks twice as fat today, the baby is in a totally different position. When I got home from work she didn't eat the grain I offered her and she kept following me around and called to me when I left the barn. Right before I left she pooped but it was less then half of what she normally poops and it was really soft and not formed into balls at all. I have helped dogs, cats, horses, and cows give birth and I know that not eating, and soft small poop is a sign that they will have the baby soon in all of them so i'm assuming it is the same with Gracie but I'm not sure what other signs to look for or when she will have it based on those signs.She is looking at her belly also and she keeps burping. At first I thought she was grinding her teeth cause I kept hearing grumbling but then I realized she is burping...a lot...cie was my first ever goat and is my Queen of the herd and my own personal darling. Goober was raised by all men so prefers my hubby to me most of the time and Robyn is a wild thing who is just starting to accept people touching her, but Gracie comes running whenever she sees me and cuddles right up to me and rubs her face against my hand if I don't pet her and closes her eyes and just lays her head in my hands when I pet her and tries to groom me when I scratch her back and has always been my baby so i'm just as worried about loosing her as I am about loosing the baby.... Last night she seemed to be lying down peacefully enough and wasn't pushing at all so me and hubby went to bed then got up to check her in 2 hours. We checked her every two hours...well my hubby checked her. I woke up the first time but slept through it the next time the alarm went off. Which is crazy because usually someone opening the door of my bedroom is enough to wake me up completely. Still no babies and I had to work this morning. Thankfully either my hubby, brother-in-law, or father-in-law are going to be there all morning keeping an eye on her for me. Yesterday the babies had moved and she looked WAY fatter, the babies where being carried kinda high in her sides. Today after I got home from work the babies have dropped. Her belly is hanging down and her sides are sunk in. Also she yawns a lot.
