Ligaments Gone for 23 hours

Should I worry or have a vet come out. My 2nd freshner lost her ligaments yesterday around 9-10am in the morning I checked frequently and they are still gone, she was also leaking colostrum... Even tho I am slightly new to this and this is my second year kidding I have become quiet good at finding ligaments so I know for sure they are gone but I think I can still feel a kid moving around(do they actually stop movement 12 hours before labor)... I thought I saw her having contractions yesterday…See More
