please help me

where do I start ..... I got my mare in November the owner I got her off only had her 4month but she got her off a dealer and had stallions mixed with mares. When I got her I could milk her but she wasn't fat if anything I would say under nourished I got told to get the vet out as she could be pregnant the vet came and took some bloods they came back negative so I started work with her and building a relationship with her as she was very nervous. I noticed she starter getting a fat looking belly and her mood started changing, she is not a greedy horse and loves to be worked but her belly is now enormous doubled in size I have tried watching but I just think I stare that much I eyes play tricks lol I have worked out that if she is pregnant then she is due this month I think I just dnt know. She is showing some sighs of being pregnant like her milk sack is bigger and her nipples are big she doesn't like her belly being touch just wants the field to her self she has no fatty lumps on her bum or neck. I have stopped all work for her just in case she is pregnant I really just don't know please any advice would be appreciated

A blood test is fairly reliable as long as the vet used the right one. I would call the vet back out to know for sure.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Chiilaa depending on the test it can be wrong. The tests only cover certain stages of pregnancy for the blood tests and it depends on how far along she may or may not be, etc, etc.

the vet said to just wait for at least 4wks because if our dates are correct then she should be due at any time

IF she is preggers :) then has she had proper vaccines? Are you giving supplements ? Do you have a clean place for her to foal with some straw down ? My Vet has suggested straw over shavings, this way the foal cannot inhale a shaving by accident.

I got her in November and the lass I got her off got her 4 months before me I have had her 7months 7+4= 11. No I haven't been giving her supplements but I do have a clean dry place for her I dnt normally use shaving but I could get some and injections hers are up to date the reason im not giving supplements is because I got told by her blood test back in January that she wasn't pregnant but the vet told me today that if she was over 100days pregnant then the test can come back false and she still could be pregnant but she advised that I just wait for another 4wks if no foal then there isnt going to be lol
