Same issue OP! My two does currently in milk were bred in May, so I was planning to discontinue milking them at the end of this month. Well, they both had bloody discharge for 2 days, so they may have miscarried. If that's the case, I don't want to give up the milk for nothing. Anyone have suggestions on what they would do?

You can just pull some blood and send it to Biopryn. It’s like $4 for a pregnancy test. Very accurate.
I consider that quite cost effective.
I need to know soon if kidding supplies must be bought, which is a small hunk of money this time of year. $4 Is a better investment than just buying everything for nothing right now!

I looked all over their website and couldn’t find how to buy anything! I was very frustrated! I’m pretty sure my doe is pregnant due to no cycle since September when she was with the buck. But, I’d love to be sure...since I’m buying things...reading like crazy, etc. so, I’m thinking about the PTest..because it’s cheap and easy...but if I can do blood for $4!, please tell me the exact link, because I couldn’t navigate for the life of me! :(

I've got a doe that should have been bred in May, and due mid October.

(Exact dates written down, gotta look.)

The first two months post breeding I was certain she was changing shape. Now, I think she's just pleasantly plump.

I'll update with pics, but in meantime, how do you conclude if a doe is expecting or not?
Symptoms are cervical mucus, wagging their tail, being louder than normal, etc.) Your goat should not be exhibiting any of these signs if she is bred. 6 weeks post-breeding: A goat's belly will be tight, just in front of their udder. If not these. pleasantly plump is the perfect term. :D:D:D:D:D
