Difference in bagging up vs teats full??

I am sorry if this is in the wrong place and also that this is concerning a donkey not a horse but I need help now

Two weeks ago purchased a mini donkey that is prego. After talking to my Vet she said to introduce to my Standard John before she gets to far along in her pregnancy. She asked if she was bagged up. I said no as I had looked and did not see a bag. Planned on introducing this long 4 day weekend However came home yesterday afternoon and her normal teats has turned in to baloons....Can not reach Vet as she is out for death in family. She has donkey and had told me that once she bags up likely about a month before birth. Now I am wondering if the teats full is bagging up or are we past that.
Please advise if you know anything..

It can be either or. Bagging up can mean both "She is starting to bag up" Meaning she is starting to get milk. Same thing with her teats being full. You will start to see her udders getting bigger and you may even see milk drip when she is ready to give birth.

Thank you for the infomation.
Have no idea if I should try the introduction this weekend or not. Vet said it would be better for her to bond with Homer before the baby comes. Also hate to keep her in a round pen without pasture for another month. On the other hand don't want to risk the baby... What a mess.

Could you introduce them and stay with them? And if you have to leave, seperate them so if she does foal, you know they'll be safe? Of introduce them in a paddock next to each other for a day and see how it goes from there x

Homer and the horses are in the paddock from 5pm to 5am then the herd goes down to the pasture. The round pen is in the paddock and Homer has even been coming up during the day when she calls However we tried to introduce down in the pasture last weekend he started running her and nipping so we broke it up. Since she is so much smaller and prego afraid to try introducing them again if she is to far along.The Vet did say to try and just introduce Homer and Sugar without the horses because he was likely protective of his herd. That is what I planned to do this weekend but now questioning if she is close to foaling.
