    My third or fourth freshener, Half-Pint, is due around February 28 or early March, but that's just a guess, it could be earlier or later. For the past few days I have noticed that her udder is getting huge and her teats look like they are going to explode. Do you think she will go into labor sooner than later?

    Usually the udder begins to fill around 1 to 1 1/2 months prior to kidding, so, she may be right on schedule.

    Really not a huge udder - I would expect in a couple of weeks or so....

    She had her babies a week ago! Two buckling’s, both very healthy! Her udder doubled in size once she had them!

    She had her kids a week ago, two buckling’s. Her udder is obviously huge now that she’s nursing!
