It’s the simple things in her I have noticed that keeps me wondering. She only shakes her head now instead of her whole body, she is constantly biting at her belly, and her attitude has changed. Sorry the ground looks like I’ve been shaving her coat off it’s shedding time here lol.

Are you still thinking she might be in foal?
I’m really not sure it looks like she may have dropped or she could just be getting fat. Here was her udders today

Does she pass the rib test? She doesn't look like she's very fat. Normally what's in front of her udder is either fat or edema. If it's fat she would be too. It looks like there might be more farther along her belly? If there is I'd say it has to be edema. Have you tried to get any fluid to test?

I tried to get fluid a while back but she buckled and was really nervous so I have been working to get her more comfortable so I will try again today.
