    I got my pygmy goat about 3 months ago. She was probably exposed to bucks before I picked her up from her previous home. She now lives with 2 wethers, so they are definitely not the baby daddy! We are about 70% sure she's pregnant, because she's been swelling in her stomach, and now her udders are showing, her vulva does look like it's swelling as well. But, I've never had a pregnant doe, so I can't say for sure. She definitely gorges herself on food, always rejects our wethers' advances and we always just thought she was a really chill goat, but it could just be that she's been pregnant this whole time!

    Her udder would not be developing if she wasn't pregnant. It is which means she is.

    She definitely looks pregnant and sounds like it too. I would be interested in seeing how this ends up, so if possible keep us updated!
