    Ok, here's pics of her when I just went and checked on her. What do you guys think?! You can very prominently see her hip bone now, and it looks to me like her belly dropped. But I'm starting to think I'm imagining things. Please tell me!!!

    The stall she's in is a very quiet and large private stall, so I'm hoping she will feel safe and comfortable to foal in there.

    I have never had a foal before, so I am not sure, but looking at pics from before to know... you can see a big difference, I would not be suprised if she popped tonight!

    Just went and checked on her, and boy is that little one active again, or still active from earlier...who knows! Hubby thinks we will have a baby in the morning, but I'm not convinced

    If this is accurate, then it's on like donkey kong!

    Pre-Labour Fetal Activity - It is a common misconception that the foal remains in the "diving position" throughout the pregnancy. In truth, the fetus may be in a variety of positions in early pregnancy but lack of space dictates that changes in position occur with much less frequency in the third trimester. Pre-labour, the fetus becomes more active and the mare more likely to experience signs of abdominal discomfort, often making it difficult to discern from colic. A fetus may have a "flurry" of activity lasting 10 - 15 minutes each time as it extends forelimbs or hindlimbs causing increased pressure on the mare's urinary tract or bowels. Unless significant ongoing discomfort is being shown by the mare, including straining to urinate or a build-up of gas, this increase in fetal activity often goes unnoticed or is seen as irritability of the mare and an active flank area. (Hayes, 1993; McDonald, 2006)

    No baby still. I'm so glad I stalled her, the weather is awful! Freezing cold, snow, and 30-40 mph wind. Brrrrrrrr

    Her belly hasn't pointed yet but all the other signs are starting to get there.. im thinking within the next two week max... hopefully sometime in the next week for your sanity!

    Lol no problem. Seriously, if you look at half the threads I start, I ask a million questions, most of them probably very obvious to others, but not to me and I would rather ask and be thought dumb than not ask and make a dumb mistake!

    There's a definite difference in her muscles in the hind end, so I think you're getting close. For your own sanity I hope it's soon, but also hope that she holds off until the weather is warmer!
