I'm up on "doe watch" because I think it might! Dora is my spotted 2 yo FF and my only full blood Nubian doe. (the other is an American). I pasture bred this year, so dont have a due date (which I hate, this wont happen again next year for sure!) She's developed a nice little udder. She's had some clear goopy stringy stuff for the last week on and off. Yesterday afternoon there was a thick yellow and brick colored string about 7 or 8 inches long. I'm assuming that was the mucous plug. Last evening late I could feel the ligaments had changed from the afternoon, but thought I could still feel something? Since noon today, I think her ligs are gone, and I can get my fingers just about all the way around her tail head. Tonight she started nesting. I guess I first saw that on my 11 PMish pen check. Grabbed the birthing kit, and stayed down there in the fresh straw I just put down for about an hour and a half. Besides another small yellow string late evening, she hasnt shown obvious labor. She's still begging for treats. She has gotten pretty lovey, and screams whenever I leave her; this is a big change for her, shes unusally very standoffish, tonight she's letting me pet her and brush her, and is being unusually affectionate. She's really hungry, or at least jonesing for treats, she's got plenty of hay in front of her but is still trying to tease anything she can get out of my pockets. Havent been online for a few days since my computer is in the shop. So I came back to the house and got on hubbies computer. Figured I'd catch up here while waiting for the next check. I just cant imagine her going on like this much longer! Shes looking good, healthy, happy and active, no sign shes sick or in pain, so I dont htink shes quite started active labor just yet. I'm guessing she'll start some time in the next 12 hrs. though, does that sound about right? I sure hope so, its great shes doing this in the weekend I'm off. I really want those babies out safe and sound before I have to go back to work on Monday. Wish me luck, this will be my first kidding in about 6 yrs.... I was still pretty much a novice back then with only a few years in goats, so I really feel like a newbie all over again! I think I'll go make myself a cup of tea, and bundle up a bit and head back down to sit there for a bit! Anybody else up on doe watch tonight?
