Sleeping in the barn is fun, but those sneaky mares always wait until you have to go in the house for something to foal.

I've been on watch for almost 2 weeks now.. hopefully she won't make me do 3. All I want is a healthy mommy and baby so I will remain sleep deprived till that baby is on the ground.

She sure looks ready to foal. She has a relaxed tail bone, bagged up full, dropped down and back belly and is leaking milk from what you say. Not long to wait.
Wax may form and drop off which is why you may not be seeing it..although it sounds like you have a very close eye on her.
She will foal soon, make sure you post some pics of her baby once it arrives.

I will definitely post pics. She was bred to a very dark chestnut stallion. Im dying to see what color it is!

I checked her Ca+ and pH a moment ago her Calcium is still in the 200 range but her pH is lighter than the 6.4 (lowest range on the strip). She has been bouncing around, hasn't been this low before, but has dropped and then went back up again. Does it have to be that the calcium spikes and the pH drops to signify she will go into labor soon or just one or the other?
