My boer cross Sheba was acting a little more friendly and I saw that she was sunken in around her tail head and in her flanks...this doe is not friendly so I had to catch her and put her in my kidding stall. I am hoping she can hold off a little bit. Her udder isn't full yet but I felt a baby move a little and it was kicking too. I was kind of hugging her and felt her tense up in her belly. How close do you think she is??? This will be her first kidding with me and I have only had her for 2 weeks....I am really excited!!!

I don't know the due date on this particular doe because they pasture breed and don't write down dates...I could tell by her udder formation that she would be due within the next month so I had a little bit of a warning. What do you think by her signs????

She is laying down now. She has made a 'nest'...not sure of her pattern but this seems to be normal labor behavior in my experience thus far.

I hope for babies soon...I will not get much sleep tonight either. She is now stretching a bit and putting her tail up...we'll see....hoping for twins...buckling and doeling....or twin doelings.

Sounds very much like yours will go next! How exciting!! Nesting, pawing, being restless are all good signs. The sunken in around the tail head is also great, that means the ligaments are gone. I felt Rose's doeling move before she kidded so that's good too! Good luck!

Just another update...her udder has almost doubled in size from earlier. She isn't restless yet but I am still checking on her. I can almost touch my thumb and finger around her tail..

I know...I am so excited..I am checking on her about every hour...I won't be going back out until 9 or 9:30 our time so it will be another 3 hours until I go back out. Stacey, You are 100% correct...I am just so happy!!!
