It's totally driving me crazy. Every time she does it I start looking for the white of the amnion or any sign of her water breaking....*sigh* Maybe not watching would make the wait seem more bearable haha.
Well I'm on duty for another night of foal watch and there she is on the monitor, laying flat out like a dog in deep sleep. I have NEVER seen a horse lay down this much, let alone a very pregnant mare! Makes me want to find another type of foaling monitor... :/ We have bets going in the office each morning about how many times she will give us a false alarm. It was 18 times a few nights ago, that's my guess for tonight too. Grr!! We will all be dead by the time our filly arrives! Lol
She has not made any changes in the past few days except for her tail head getting very jiggly. It's like mush up there! Her vulva is still stretched out but her bag got smaller and the baby doesn't seem to have dropped into position. She still seems to be riding up high rather than dropping down in the belly for that 'V' shape. It seems like we have a few more weeks to go :(
Well folks it is 1:45 am here in lovely south Texas and still no baby. Tonight she went to sleep early and set off the alarm around 10 (which is unusual, she usually waits until about 1 or 2 to lay down) and now she's just pacing around the stall. She seems to be restless and can't stay in the same spot for long. Maybe the filly is finally dropping down into position?? That would sure be nice!! She is at day 324 but she went 2 weeks early with the other filly so we would not be surprised if she went early again.
She has now started to kick at her belly and swish her tail. Maybe we are starting to make some progress!
