Looks of udder. Should I stay up?

This is what the udder looks like tonight. I only saw a small bead last Sunday. Tonight it is thick globs of milk/colostrum. She passed cow pie manure today. Is acting withdrawn. But I hate to get hopes up. Not sure if I should check in the early a.m. Or just stay up and wait.

I would, at the very least, make frequent checks - but I'd be hard pressed to fall asleep. Do you have video monitoring to allow you to keep an eye on her w/out disturbing?

OMG, how can you NOT stay up when she's soooo close?!?!?! I'd be way to excited to sleep!

If you want to be sure there is a foal on the ground tonight, go to bed and sleep through the night, lol

No video. My daughter and I are considering cots in the barn, lol! I noticed a small bead or two last Sunday and not much since. Then tonight she is leaking large copius amounts of milk. Not losing it in streams or anything, which is good. The cow pie thing was new today too. She always passes normal manure. I hate to lose another nights sleep for nothing but I have to admit, this is a pretty big change. So maybe? Fingers and toes crossed!

Do you have any colostrum on hand incase she looses too much?

Since it is a large change, I personally would be sleeping in the barn. LoL

Nobody can say for sure it could be tonight it could a week from today, I found sleeping in the barn never works, as soon as you go in to pee that's when the have it. Good luck I also wish you a safe foaling.
