Still waiting

Posted by Rosie

For Charlotte the pig to give birth that is. OK, so originally I totally miscalculated my dates making her pregnancy only TWO months, 3 weeks and 3 days, not 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days, but after a quick recount I reckoned she was due on July 28th. However, Simon has 5th Aug written down which is now looking more and more likely. Poor Charlotte - she's only a small pig and she's huge and is looking really fed up, especially in this hot weather. I am seriously wondering whether I should give her a curry and suggest she has a jog round the field to get things going!!

  1. Haha....I've done similar with the calculations before.

    Maud was one day early, which is quite rare for a pig, but she did have 15 piglets, so I don't blame her!!

    14 surviving up to now.

  2. Well done Maud. Sorry to hear you lost one and good luck with the other 14. Still nothing here.

  3. I gave up on the 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days calculations and worked it out as 16 calendar weeks instead. Much easier :)
