    From my understanding... After udder fill (starts) could be 24 hours to 3 weeks... (or more?) :barnie Sorry...:hide Hope it's soon for you (and her). :fl I imagine less for those having already kidded in the past. Maybe their bodies "know more"... and maybe longer for FFs... :hu

    @Wehner Homestead SO TRUE!

    Marshmallow is 2 days from her due date! We're excited! Her udder is filling nicely, she has started to have goo. We're suppose to get rain on her due date, snow the day after. Hoping she does not go a day over having them during the snow storm. Knowing the doe code, she probably will.

    Willow is 4 days until her due date. Her udder is SLOWLY filling. Can barely notice a difference.

    Honey is 11 days away. Her udder is filling noticeably. Honey is huge! Everyone here is guessing quads.

    Rose has not had any more signs of labor or prelabor. She is still having small amounts of discharge. Her udder is getting larger still. Who knows when she'll kid. Hopefully in Feb. :hu

    Today is day 145 for Marhsmallow. She was having contractions last night. I assume it was getting kids into position. She did a lot of stretching. Anxiously waiting for her to go in labor.
    I will get pictures of her later.

    Thank you. I hope so.

    Marshmallow is now wanting NOTHING to do with any of us. This is unusual behavior for her. She is now running away from us, not even letting us get close enough to get a good picture. Hopefully we will have babies some time today. :fl:fl

    No babies yet. A lot of heavy breathing and stretching last night.

    DH says Willow & Marshmallow will kid tomorrow. His day off. :lol:

    Willow is day 145. Does not look like she will be kidding today.

    Today is day 147 for Marshmallow. Not sure on her, she's been doing a lot of stretching, lip curling, pawing, can not get comfortable.
