Gabby getting ready

Gabby has been particularly uncomfortable today, grunting and groaning.  There clearly isn't much room in there because she didn't even bother having any tea, she just watched everyone else eat.

I think her baby with need some sort of gymnastic name as I have never seen an unborn cria move about as much as hers.  It appeared to go completely sideways at one point, poor Gabby; I was in pain just watching.

This was taken this afternoon just as one of the many back end bulges appeared.

And just as it was going back down again!
Gabby usually likes her babies well cooked and if she goes to her own averages she's not actually due until the end of the month but at the rate she is going I doubt she will make it past the end of the week.

Her best friend and yarn blend pal Imala also has milk now, she too is due at the end of the month but looks like she will be sooner.  Poor Chiquita is looking increasing huge but no closer to producing.

Ah poor Gabby, I hope it comes soon, I cant believe how much these girls bulge out the back, I can only think its a way of stretching the birth canal ready, but sometimes it looks like they are going to explode.

I hope the cria comes soon or Gabby's sake
