How's her udder? Blown up yet? I don't remember - has she kidded previously?Sooo still having contractions
Udder is only filled a little, never kidded before. This is the first sign of discharge she’s had and she was up and down all night scratching the pine shavings. What I’m seeing HAS to be contractions, I spend hours with my goats every day and know what rumen movement looks like. Once every minute her abdomen tightens up and she closes her eyes and stops breathing. It only last a couple seconds each time. I did reach in and feel if her cervix was dilated and can fit two fingers.How's her udder? Blown up yet? I don't remember - has she kidded previously?
Goats can have a mucous discharge for weeks ahead of kidding. It's just the mucous plug. Rumen movement can look like contractions too. Hopefully she hasn't truly been in labor for 14 hours.
