Try this: take a pic of your cow then compare your camera pic to her from day to day to see if you can detect changes in her. Looking at other cows is fine and sometimes helpful, but nothing will beat knowing your cow. It's another one of those things that varies from one animal to the next as well. Some cows always kind of surprise me with the new calf while others look like their calves are about to fall out for 3 weeks. Keep good notes if these are girls your planning to have for a while, and it'll help in the yrs to follow.

If none of those pics are helpful, then yet another idea is to wait until you see feet poking out ~ thats a sure sign. She has calved before ~ yes? She will do fine I am thinking. Do you have concerns regarding her health or safety?

Here are a couple pictures the tail is in the way but you can see the swollen vulva
I took these pictures back in 2006 had two heifers that looked like this for more than a week . I thought it was on the extreme side I thought everyday that they would calf finally one day they did no problems at all. They have calved every year since never have been as big as they were when they were heifers
