    I posted this on another forum and felt like i got alot of negative feedback for even asking. Hopefully this goes better.
    I have 2 3yo Nigerian dwarf/ pygmy mix does that were with a buck for 14 days. The 1st i saw flagging and what I thought was bred, she would be way past due (160 days)if it took then. Both my does are FF and it's been 152 days since the buck left the property. There are no other bucks so I'm positive it didn't happen later. I'm not too concerned about the one doe because he was chasing her around the last few days he was here so she shouldn't be too far past. The other one I'm pretty sure was bred before her. When should I get concerned about kid size or momma? Both are eating, drinking like normal. Bellies have dropped and utters have been growing for over a month, but haven't become tight, neither like thier rear ends touched and I'm new to pregnant goats, so between them and me, ligaments are hard to even touch. The 2nd doe has had slight mucus discharge and areas beside the tail look to be hollowing out. The overly pregnant one isn't giving me much of any signs other than being as wide as she is tall and uncomfortable.
