    I have three due this month....I am going through alot of the same. Two are first fresheners and on the small side. One is a second freshener so i am not too worried about her. But it is so hot here, supposed to be in the 100s the rest of the week. I keep changing the water to keep it cool. Poor girls. Two of these girls, the first two, were too small to breed in the fall, so i held them over and bred them in the late winter....so summer babies, the third one just got bred late, my fault.

    Next year all my goats will be bred in october for march babies so it won't be hot when they are born!

    I think I've been waiting forever! LOL I have a first timer (no due date), thought she was going to go 5 weeks ago. I also have a second timer due this month, I'm starting to think she will beat the other one.
    I think this is worse than being pregnant myself!

    Hate to tell you this but we had three go into labor in one day. Two sets of twins and one 11 pound buck....and my husband was home alone.

    Discovered that day that it sure was a good thing I had C-sections or my husband would have cracked under the pressure. I am still giggling (under my breath of course) over the panic that reigned over the farm.
