Hello,
So I didn't get any sleep last night because I was sure she was in active labor, it was literally textbook signs! Now she's just laying down more calm, What The Heck! Here's a new udder pic, pregnant or nuts : /

The elongation is what I am seeing too, nothing more to speak of. As she's a maiden, you do know that they MUST agree to drive the owner nuts  >:D >:D before foaling...don't you??  ;D ;D

yes and I'm starting to think I'm crazy and she's not pregnant. I go back and forth several times a day and feel maybe I'm reading too much into every "symptom" :( so annoying! I've separated her from my mini herd just in case but maybe I'm taking this too far?! Thank you for responding I really appreciate everyone's opinion so much

Hey, you're doing just fine!  As many mares as I've foaled out, I had one that I decided wasn't pregnant every other day!  And she was an older mare, and her belly changed constantly.  One day, I just decided she wasn't pregnant, and I put her back in pasture with the other mares and their foals, and unfortunately checked later (since I didn't have another mare due, so took my time) and found my "heart" filly -- dead.  And she was everything I'd waited for in all my years of breeding this one particular stallion!

So, they can be very confusing.  I could have kicked myself!  But, you're doing all the right things, even if it turns out she's not pregnant, although it really seems she could be!  So, keep up with what you're doing, and it will be the best for both of you!

As you know my vet did not see a baby on an external maybe 30 second US. I'm not crazy but still just going to keep an eye on her through this month just to be sure and have no regrets. Here's a new udder pic nothing huh?

I think it's always prudent err on the safe side, than be sorry later.

It's hard to say but there could be some slight swelling :)

I agree it does look like swelling.

I know your vet said not pregnant but I think your doing the right thing in keeping a close eye on her. It wouldn't be the first time a vet has been wrong.

You know her better than anyone :)

Sure looks like she's elongating.  I think you're doing a great job watching and documenting her!
