I have a 24 year old mare that was checked in foal at 35 days. That was about 10 days ago. Today she came in from the pasture with extreme udder development on only one side. The other side is COMPLETELY flat and empty. The side that bagged up is a typical about to foal looking udder, very tight and hard. It is also sensitive. She usually likes her udders cleaned and doesn't mind them touched, but she would pin her ears and switch her tail when I reached for it. I didn't want to upset her so I only tried to milk her once to see if anything would come out. It didn't, but she didn't give me much of a chance.

We have a vet appointment on Monday.

What should I do? I am very worried that she is loosing the pregnancy... But why just one side?

Also, she is on regumate ans has been since day 5 post breeding.

You need to be on the lookout for mastitis, which it sounds as though this could be. I would encourage you to get a vet out before Monday. Might be nothing serious, but if it's mastitis by Monday it could be serious. Hopefully it's something less serious such as bite of a sting, but...

Are antibiotics safe during early pregnancy? Are there any antibiotics that are safer then others? I don't like to give them anything in the beginning.

If your vet suggests antibiotics, then give them.
I assume antibiotics are prescription only where you are?
We have used antibiotics on many pregnant mares, at all stages of pregnancy, with no harmful side effects. Obviously you should be guided by your vet as to which drug will be best for your mare's situation. I'm sure he will be aware that the pregnancy is important, but the mare's health is your first priority in any case. No mare= no foal.
