Looks like it's happening now !? Or I'm misunderstanding her behavior.

Same as yesterday at this time. Having a rest on the floor.
I'd take a screen print but it would look the same as yesterday's.
Oliver isn't visible in the other pen.

Still waiting.

 Blush Damn, I was mistaken. False alarm. I keep a eye on it yesterday while surfing on RD 'cos I was sure she was giving birth.  Sweating

Well, until next time...  Icecream

Overnight of 26th to 27th.
No bebe yet.
She's standing a lot tonight.

She is having a little trouble laying down on the floor tonight.
She's stretched out on her right side with her left leg extended out to the side.
She's lowering her head and neck, then picking it up.
Her actions remind me of the family dog a day before she had her pups.

I've been watching these giraffes for a month now and I've grown very attached to them. I love April's hay showers and Oliver running crazy in his pen.     I've always loved giraffes but now more so after learning a lot about them during this baby watch.



I really hope it will be soon but I'm thinking she'll give birth on April 1st...   There are signs that seem to point to a birth happening soon though, they did say there was milk already in her udders and her backside seems really swollen. Also the baby is moving less than it did before which might mean it's in the right position for birth. Her keepers are saying she is really huge now so fingers crossed the baby will come out soon!



It's funny, I'm actually looking forward to this giraffe baby more than for example CP & Snakey's new offspring.  Tongue

Has anyone seen the Facebook post where the pregnancy lady is pacing with a giraffe mask on?

This will be TMI but since I've already got people doubting my post on Facebook... The zoo says there might be a baby today. They are not confirming active labour yet but they've been checking the progression of the udders (there's milk) and they said there is discharge (did not specify where) which seems to point to a labour beginning.

I saw their post this morning too! I have the live stream pulled up on my computer, keep checking it every few minutes. Looks like they just went in and checked her again. Hoping the time is near!

April was pacing the pen. Stopped by the passage door between her & Oliver. Back to circling the pen again. When she stops, she appears to be rocking gently while standing. She seems restless. Her left rear leg gets waggled slightly every now and then. Seems to favor that leg.
