Here’s a photo update, she is beginning to really swell. 4 weeks to go for the 38 mark. I know she can and might drive me crazy and hold that baby longer, but I will start really watching her a bit before week 38. She has dips in her sides, no milk yet but today the swelling is much more noticeable from all angles. I will share photos when things look different.
Maybe just maybe she will calve on my birthday! ❤️
Awe, what day?

Happy early B-day! There’s a good chance for that date.

Updates. 3 weeks to the 38 week mark. The girly parts are for sure puffy, she had a very clear mucus string yesterday that almost touched the ground. I’m guessing things are moving along nicely. The teats look like shriveled raisins and the bag is about the same. Pics for the update.

Today at feeding, I noticed a lot of different things. Her side is dipped in, a lot. We cut back on their grain because I read it can cause a large calf, I thought in the summer I had messed up big time. So I only give them a couple cups each a day. This made this slim down a bit but today this dip is very noticeable. You can see her bag a bit more today, but the biggest thing is by the tail, it had dips and it looks like it’s sticking up a couple more inches than normal. Are we closer than I know? Or is she still way off?

Very swollen today. I am guessing she is getting there. 36 weeks 1 day. Come on baby! This has and will continue to be a learning lesson. I am so excited.

Need some pictures of the udder. I still don't think that she is as close as you want her to be. She is getting a little puffy, but still too many wrinkles. Need to look at her udder from the back and her hips and pins....

Thank you, I will take some more pictures and post them tomorrow. I have no idea what I am looking for... so anything different is exciting to me. I could still be here waiting on a baby with a Turkey bird on the table. Lol She is a stubborn redhead, might just hold it in just for laughs.
