Question
she almost five months i think but not sure i will ask my vet to come look at her and see if he can feel the kid or kids in her i bred her to a nubian buck and she is pygmy

Answer
Just as an aside, I have found that many vets cannot feel the kids easily - it takes a lot of experience - if the doe has not been in heat for quite a few months then you would think she is indeed pregnant.  If her pelvic ligaments are softening up or are gone completely then she is very close to kidding - let me know - Donna
