It's Been a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG Two Days
Day 373 of pregnancy for Princess Buttercup. Sigh. Poor thing. Yesterday I observed her lying on her side and pushing, three different occasions. Why does she stop pushing? So, I checked her and could tell she was not dialated, but what is going on? This is not right. Finally called the vet. He did a thorough exam and said she was having "positional labor". The baby is very big, and she's trying to get it into position to birth. Usually, when you invade the alpaca this way, it stimulates the system and they have their cria within 24 hours. Not our Princess. She is so uncomfortable, and is humming to her baby already. This is almost as bad as being pregnant myself!!! I can't wait to get this cria on the ground.
