Any incite?

I recently got 2 mares from the rescue, a couple of the horses in the heard that I chose from were pregnant for sure but we were not sure about the horse that we chose... we had the vet out and she palpated both of them. She said neither one of them was pregnant but that they had air in their uterus'...(this was about a month ago). Yesterday I realized that one of the mares stomach was looking bigger and I went and looked at her teats and she seems to be "bagging up"? Could the vet have made a mistake? Surely if she was that pregnant the vet couldn't have mistaken a baby for air? Can any one help me?

Vets are human, just like the rest of us, and can make mistakes. You might want to visit with your vet again - whether the mare is pregnant or not, something has changed and may need to be looked at.

if she was skinny and malnourished it is possible the vet missed it.
