My clydie marer had a foal back in late October. She did a similar thing and bagged up over night about 1/4 to 1/3 and then it would go away and come back every night for about a week.
She bagged right up 2 days prior to foaling.
I did a temp check with her (which you do mroning and night) and it worked for us, but I didnt use it as my sole indicator for the impeding birth. It was accurate to within 24 hours for us. When the mares night temp was equal to or less then her morning temp foaling will be within a day or 2.
But as said it worked for us but as to how effective it is, I don't know.
