    Hi,

    How soon after a goat gets pregnant can you feel the babies moving?

    Usually not until the last month or so of pregnancy in my experience :) It is pretty cool when It happens!

    I get my girls on the stand for their grain at around 2 months preggy, I start to feel bellies and touch udders so they are used to me and I can usually feel movement at about mid 4th month...little flutters against my palm, it's not til the end of the 4th month into the 5th that I can see movement.

    I agree... that later in the pregnancy... is easier to feel for movement..... it is so neat... feeling the life inside ...just waiting to arrive.... when it is time... :hi5: :thumb:

    under belly before the udder or right side..... sometimes... it takes being in the right place at the right time ....while others....just by a light push... puts them in action ....depending on when their due date is.... the closer to it ...the more movement times you will feel.... :wink: :thumb:

    I felt movement about a week or so ago on our doe who is due on New Years. It was light bumps, but definitely was the kid. I also felt movement with our first two does about this far along in their pregnancy.
    My girls love their bellies rubbed, so it makes it easy to feel for movement :)
