My mare is 6 months and is showing :) She first started showing by being fuller in the flanks but her belly has dropped. She's not in work and a maiden.

Top: 1 month in foal bottom: 6 months

When I bred my first mare that was worthy of breeding, I knew she was pregnant the moment I picked her up from the stud. Her eye had totally changed.

Many years ago we had a big Irish Draught mare come to the stallion. She was covered in April. She then returned in season in September. She was turned out with the stallion. The owner decided to Fox Hunt the mare that season as she would not be fooling until August.
Late that season, March time, the mare owner and I were out with hounds gate closing. Only when she trotted down the road behind me did I realise just how much bigger the mare was on one side.
That mare, looking at her from either side, just looked a bit fat but, from a distance whine, she was uneven.
This was her third foal and she foaled a week later!

Standing behind and looking is the best way to see if there is unevenness.
Yeah, I know every horse is different, and with Lilly being a maiden, I have no previous reference point. She was confirmed in foal by a vet, but then there is so much time of just waiting that I started to overthink and wonder if she was still in foal. Finally, a friend told me that it's too late to rebreed anyway, so I may as well relax and wait and see how she develops! Easier said than done, I am sooo impatient. And I did take a picture of her from behind as well! I just thought her lopsided belly was a little more noticeable from the front.

I know exactly how you feel! Dee's last scan was 4 months ago! However, I think she's changed shape and attitude nothing can be done now anyway if she isnt, but I would be absolutely gutted!

It also doesn't help that I have a counter widget on my phone that counts down the days until Lilly is at 340 days. ~139 more days...

Also, I meant to say earlier, Dee is really pretty and so shiny! What breed is she?

If you look up counter or countdown, you should be able to find something.
