    This is my first time owning goats and I am unsure if she is pregnant. She has developed teats but her bag has not filled up yet.

    Honestly, to me, she does not look bred. Or if she is, she is incredibly early in her pregnancy. When did you buy her? When was she exposed to a buck? For how long? Has she been bred before or is she a first freshener?

    Her teats look like the teats of a doe who isn't bred or isn't bagged up at all. Normal looking for a dry doe. She is a very narrow doe, so she isn't showing at all if she is pregnant. Which is why I think she is not bred, or early on.

    Bags don't fill up anyway, until the last month of pregnancy onward. Sometimes they don't even fill until the day they kid.
