Still waiting on the bloods but I'm getting more and more convinced that she is - her udder is still filling up.
I've also been measuring her belly and she's grown 7cm in 3 days! I'm measuring a couple of inches before the fan hair on her flank. I've also measured her girth and that's not changed at all.
Is this the sort of increase you'd expect?

Can you post pics from a side view of her as well as a picture of her udder?

I'll get some tomorrow - I've not been up in daylight all week as I've been on nights. I did try getting some pics with the barn lights but they're pretty poor.

Before the last week or so she pretty much had no udders, just some skin and the teats.

The following were taken when she was 4

Hi

I have a mare that is maybe pregnent, she was standing with my colt last year May/April 2010, he was then 1 year and 4 months. They were standing together till he was 2 years old. In between I have taken her out for a week or so and put her back, and now for a while i could not see that she came into season. This was not planned and not buget for. Sadly the vet asks almost R1000 and i am a student and can not afford to get her check for just a yes or no answer, i am saveing for if the foal is there to check both, so i hope you can see from the pics if she is pregnant, her udder is still small but a tiny bit bigger the useal...

To me she looks preggers but the only 100% for sure would be to have a vet check her or do a wee foal test. Do you have pics from other angles of her? Do you have a pic of her udder?

She looks like she still has a ways to go. She does not have much of an udder yet. Difficult to tell how far a long she may be.
