    So this is Lilly she is due Feb 17 , I am due Feb 14. She keeps pretending to go into labor which is driving me crazy so far neither of us has popped and show no current sign of going to to labor. So do you y'all think she will go soon or is she going to wait till I am in labor or after I am home. Who going first (I know no one can predict it for sure just figured it would be for fun who goes first) what's your bet.

    in looking at lilly i'd say she has more udder to build but you didn't show us a picture of your tummy so I don't know how far you've dropped either so i'm going to say you will go on the same day, feb 15th. good luck to both of you.

    If she is a typical goat, she will hold off until you are "saddled up" with feet in the stirrups and will then deliver so you'll have kids already waiting for you when you arrive home with your own kid(s)...

    So far no one has popped the race is still on lol I forgot that we have chicks due to hatch on the 18 lol so there are three runners. Lilly utters have gotten alittle bigger and my belly is the same lol the Dr confirmed today that he head down and low and that everything is progressing just waiting for the day to happen. Apparently he is a big boy, considering he up high and low at the same time lol.
