....tell us about the birth. Did you know she was about to have them and did you watch the whole event? How long did it take for all 3 to be born?
Well, I knew it was going to be soon, because her pelvic bone had begun to seperate last week, and had been at 2 fingers width for 3 days. Her genital area was swollen, and the day before, I saw her tugging the fleece and re-arranging it. She would sniff the floor, and go in circles, checking and re-checking. Plus she was constantly eating pellets, sleeping, eating way more than usual, even for being pregnant.
Also, she avoided fruit all the way up until the last day. She ate 2 table spoons of banana. That told me she must have been needing sugar, and her body was going through the blood sugar drop at the end of pregnancy. I noticed she wanted sugar and anything high in calcium, and also she ate poo almost non stop the last two days.
I got there just after the last baby was born, and had just checked on her the hour before. So I did not see the contractions or actual birth, but I know it was very short because I checked on her b4 I started an episode of desperate housewives, and they were born when I got up to check before it was even over..
