Newbie pregnancy question. not about kidding.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've searched all over the web trying to find out two questions. Maybe one of you can help me. I do not know when my little girl is due. The woman I bought her from didn't know either. I'm sure it's getting close. Maybe 2 weeks or so (in my uneducated guess). One question is how long does it take for the softening ligaments to disappear. Is that a case by case? Hers have been getting softer for about a month. Starting to see the sunken sides.
Question number 2 is I know it's normal for her vulva to swell and look tight but,. Is it normal for it to return to more normal and less swollen? Dumb questions just trying to learn all I can. Thank you for indulging me.

Just slowly getting bigger. Nothing drastic. They have been growing for about a month now.

Goats usually start showing udder development about two months before kidding, so that may give you a time line.
