    I have three does that were all due this week. The first two had their kids with no problem. The third one had one baby while I was at work today and it is already dry and walking around. The problem is I think she was carrying twins and I'm worried that she hasn't had the other one yet. Should I be trying to pull it?

    Well, I may have been wrong. I went out and checked her and I can't feel another baby. So she's just fat? As long as she doesn't start showing signs of distress I guess I will leave her alone.

    Still just the one?

    As long as she is looking right (no signs of discomfort or distress) I would call it good.

    You can always take her temperature if you are on the fence as to how she is acting.
