So my Nubian doe Diamond is due on Saturday, June 9, but she has been acting like she was in labor for the past two days. She lost her mucus plug last week and bagged up in the middle of April. I don;t know if she is going to go soon or not. Her udder is very full and she is very swollen "back there" Please Help! I don't know when shes gonna go!

Well greetings and welcome back Laura :) There's this thing called "doe code" and simply stated, she'll go when she's ready and you aren't, at the least opportune time, right AFTER you have just checked on her and seen no indication that anything was happening, and preferably during a 500 year storm (snow being preferred).

Is this her first time freshening or has she kidded before? How old is she? Based on what you've shared, I'd say that she's probably very close and could go at any time. Hope all goes well and that you'll share some pics when you can.
