    Tessie's due the first of January, Helen a week later. Both are most definitely preggo - I can feel the babies! Can hardly wait! :clap:
    I've got no experience, but by the feel of things, I'm *guessing* Tessie will have one and Helen two. Hoping for :kidred: :kidred: :kidred: because I want some more milkers - but if it's just two healthy bucklings I'll be happy too. Neither one's head smells bucky...so...?
    I will try to get pics of them soon. Right now I have a question. Tessie had a bit of yellow/white discharge today. Is this normal or something to be concerned about?

    Ooo kids - so much fun.
    Sounds like Tessie was just loosing her mucus plug, totally normal. This can happen anywhere from 1 month to hours before kidding but usually within the 1-2 week mark.

    OK, thanks Stacey. Didn't think it looked bad, but I wanted to be sure. I've only been through one kidding before. I was blissfully ignorant and everything was fine. Now, after reading up on kidding problems, I'm nervous! But also excited!

    Tessie is due the same time as our doe Ithma! :) I'm also hoping for doelings too, but will settle with a safe, and healthy mom and baby or babies.
    I have only had 2 does kid, first one had mucus discharge on and off for over a month, and then more as labor started. The other doe had the discharge for a month or so before kidding, but had no discharge while in labor until she was pushing!

    Ithma hasn't had any noticable discharge yet, but still 2 weeks left.

    BABIES!!!! I can't wait :) Here's hoping you get your does!

    I made the mistake of waiting too long....First babies wont be until like april lol....PLEASE take lots of baby pics for me!

    I think we get so excited because they are sooooo cute and innocent, precious, and they are just so happy and playful. Plus they just love you! I love the spazzy jumps and the way they just look at you with those cute little faces! AWWWW I WANT BABIES!

    I agree, they are just too cute in every way! And i think you probably planned it good for spring babies, you'll avoid the bitter cold temps! I think the next time we have does bred for the early part of the year we'll try for March/April kids.

    Sure, I will! And by the time yours are born, mine will be half grown, so I'll be in need of a baby fix. :) I'll be watching for pics!

    Your babies will be arriving a good 6 weeks before mine!!! I think that Helen may have 3 in there and Tessie 1...possibly 2 and they are sure to be flashy just like their daddy!

    Thanks everyone!
    That would be so cool! She got HUGE with her first - a single buckling - so I'm not getting my hopes up too high. But when I feel her belly, I really think she has at least 2.

    There was a visible earthquake inside her this morning. I think there must be two bucklings - already playing King of the Mountain. :laugh:
