    Ya'll meet ginger! I'm not sure exactly how close she is to kidding but it should have been either last week or this week. (I threw out the calender that had her dates on it [​IMG] ) Shes huge. She hardly ever gets up and moves around. I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow after three days of laying around He said if she looks favorable he might induce her. Were kinda worried because we havn't felt the babies move in awhile. Vet said they were getting ready to be born but I don't know. Here she is.. Ginger.
    Sorry gross picture but it showes her belly and bag better.

    It's good that you are taking her to the vet.
    The reason I have my 2 orphans is that their mother was also late and we are pretty sure she had a 3rd kid that for some reason wasn't born with the rest (she had trips last time) We were waiting around forever for her to kid and she seemed fine after they were born Friday nite and was fine wehn I went home at noon Monday. Tuesday morning (my day off) one of the girls called and said she was down. She appeared to be in labor, but was not passing anything and she died a few minutes after I got there, no time to even call the vet. I think she just held on long enough to see that I was taking care of her babies!
    So please! Get her to the vet. The longer they stay in there, the larger and tighter they are, and more likely to have delivery problems.
    This is what she looked like about a week before she kidded

    Awwwww! Makes me what my three girls to have babies! I have a goat that looks preg. but she is just chubby [​IMG] She doesn't like to exert herself in any way! The others will run to you if you have food, she just looks at you as if to say, "When I get there, I'm getting it all anyway". She is the boss! I told my daughter that if she did get prego that she would explode! So cute! We need pictures!!!
