"A watched pot never boils."

And a watched pregnant goat doesn't have her baby.

Clover is so big now that she is wider than she is tall. (I think. I considered pulling out a tape measure, but that would be rude.) She is bagging up. Her lady parts (family-friendly programming) have a slight discharge. Every night I'm certain she's gonna have her baby/babies 'tonight!'

And every night I check her. I make Other Half check her. I make Son check her. And guess what! 

Chirp. Chirp.....


Nothing. Nothing but a grazing goat.

 Yep, I used this picture already, but it illustrates the situation. She looks exactly like she did the last time you checked her.

I'm hoping to find THIS!


 Remember her last baby?  Little Hucklebery!  (I still wish I'd kept him. Oh well. Hopefully she'll have another cutie patootie!) At this point, I'm like most expectant grandparents. I just want healthy baby(ies) and a healthy momma.

Clover will give birth when she's darned ready to give birth, but the stress is killing me. (and by default, Other Half & Son, who are tired of my constant pleas for them to 'check my goat!')

 Yep, still looks the same. . .

It's called the Doe Code: drive momma crazy and by extension, daddy and other family members! Sheep, on the other hand, do not have a Ewe Code. Smart of them.

She's probably just waiting for the weather to get worse =)

Waiting is horrible for this kind of thing. All babies are precious and I'm so jealous that you're expecting one.
