Oh, she's looking grand!  Yes, I'm sure she's doing everything she can to start moving that baby into position, as she needs to get him/her lined up for delivery.  Plus, sometimes they are just downright uncomfortable in these last few weeks.  Poor mommas!

Just keep up updated as we are all so excited!!

In one picture it appears the nipples still have room to fill, and then in the other it seems they're pretty full.  I think you've got a little time, but not too much!  She's moving ahead like lightning!

How about a side picture and then one from the back so we can see how this little one is riding!  That might help give us some better ideas~! But what a beautiful udder!

Shes making good progression and definitely been to the milk bar since the last udder pic you posted but she still has some filling to do yet.

Will she make it to #320 ?  I have my fingers crossed that she does :)

Just keep a really close eye on her now seeing that she lost last years foal.

Stock up on coffee and toothpicks  ;pray

Appreciate the knowledge so much! Thank you! Her nipples are more then halfway full, and Ryan she lost a baby last year at 117 DAYS to an under developed umbilical cord, but about 5 years ago before we got her she had a successful easy pregnancy and a beautiful filly. She's been on Regumate since 28 days, 10 cc a day as a precaution only. Never any evidence she needed it but my vet could see I was worried and agreed it does no harm to have her on it. Apparently since the baby induces labor she says to keep her on it until she foals. Thanks for the good thoughts, I really want to see her at least hit 320 days! Here's a few photos

She's looking great, but if she is moving that fast then in another few days you are going to have to think about 'camping out' with her overnight.  Good luck!!

I totally agree, my dear friend, as that baby is certainly almost front of center and looks quite dropped in that first picture.

Time to start camping out!  Is her personality showing any changes?  I would start spending the nights with her very soon -- it's worth being a bit tired to help get this little one safely to the ground!

I'm so excited for you!  She's looking just fabulous!

Ditto what everyone is saying. She looks to be gearing up. I can see that udder getting MUCH fuller before she foals, Though quite impressive so far!
And a word of encouragement, Kate my Welsh mare, foaled at 311 the first time, fully developed healthy filly.

OMG wow! :) Holly thanks! Good to hear, 311 days and perfect yay I needed that lol. Maybe she'll surprise us and drag it on hahaha! ;)she's even more full today and her udder doesn't shrink and fill like my others have done in the past, it just keeps getting bigger! Thank you so much all of you for all the help and advise, appreciate beyond words!
