I wanted to get an idea of when others start checking ligaments (as in what day). I have Nigies. Diamond is Day 145 on 1/23. I checked her this morning out of curiosity and both were tight. (Rest assured, she's not showing any other signs.)

I just want to be extra careful with her after the bad experience we had in the fall. I also didn't stress about my Boers like I do about my Nigies...

:idunno I started checking as soon as I saw that she was getting close. When she finally lost them, she kidded within 12 hours. I guess you can check them any time... It doesn't affect anything, just gives you some idea of if she's started loosening up and how far along she is.
