As birthing season gets closer, the dam's bellies get bigger. I've been able to see movement in Sancha's big belly. I find the cria is especially active after grain time:

I've seen some movement in Tehya's belly too, but being she's a maiden, it's harder to see. I've looked some on our other girls, but they are all due later in the season, I'm not for sure what is cria movement. I can't tell you how many hours I can spend watching in utero movement. I know to someone who is not an alpaca farmer that sounds really strange, but trust me, it's addictive once you start!
