    This is her second time, her first was super easy. I'm breathing, it's just that me and her have a special bond. When she was born the first thing she did was come and nurse on my pants. :love:

    I'm not sure, she is still moving around, nibbling on things, etc. She does seem "wider" down there and lost the plug about 6 hours ago. I don't know much about labor. :oops: I know what to do when the babies come though. :greengrin:

    Not yet. She lost the plug 2 days ago. I'm also not that good at reading pregnant goat body language yet. :oops: One minute she'll act like she's in labor, the next she's back to normal. She is one of the does that will be completely normal at 5pm but by ten have twins. Her ligaments are still there, sorry I looked at a diagram and was feeling the wrong thing. :sigh:

    If she still has ligs... then she isn't quite there....keep checking them....on and off .....as soon as they are gone.... it won't be long after..... :thumb:

    Also ...you say she acts like she is in labor at times.... is she trying to push or just looks uncomfortable.....

    Hope she has something for you soon. I've had does that start thinning out a while before they decide to finally kid-i'm sure they do it just to drive us nuts since they know we are waiting for them to have babies ;-).

    She looks uncomfortable at times, that's mainly what I'm seeing. I read somewhere that a goat could loose the plug eight days before the baby comes, is that true?

    Could be :) My two does seemed to be losing their plug for weeks. Then one doe had the stringy stuff the morning she kidded. My other doe had NO discharge whatsoever the day she discharged. Didn't even know she was in true labor, but knew it was close because she lost her ligs/udder was filling.
    I put her in her stall with a fan <hot day>, checked on her all the time, then decided to go take an hour nap. Came back outside and she was already pushing!
