April, who's at The Animal Adventure Park in NY continues to pace around her pen with no sign of baby. "Perhaps suggesting a new position of calf". "We hope for launch sequence", they continued.

Keepers at the park said Thursday morning that there was a "significant change" in the shape of the April's belly.

A baby giraffe was born - but it wasn't April's - and it's been almost two months since her baby-watch live stream first went up.

Despite a pep talk from the vet, April's calf still won't budge.

According to Animal Adventure Park, the calf will weigh about 150 pounds and will stand 6-feet tall at birth. After YouTube took down the live stream following protests from animal activists claiming that the live stream is a violation of YouTube's nudity and sexual content policy, the video on April's pregnancy has eventually been up and running again.

Although the now world-famous giraffe had been shunning her grain as of late, Dr. Tim reports that her appetite is back in full force as we enter yet another weekend awaiting the birth of her calf.

April the Giraffe's pregnancy has been called the most highly anticipated pregnancy of the year.

Feeling our frustration, Ricky Rilley, one of the many of us who are fed up with the waiting, was challenged on Facebook to write a song entirely dedicated to April's never-ending pregnancy.

"I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention", he said.

Animal Adventure Park takes pride in their indoor housing and the level of enrichment and care to keep the giraffes happy and healthy. Animal Adventure Park officials will not rush this process. All we've been told is that she could go into labor at any moment. "I know April's bowel habits, I know how many spots she has, I know her routine. Lol", said Beddie Smith, a viewer on the CBSDFW Facebook live feed. Patch explained that it's not very likely that you will be able to tell April's labor until you see an actual hoof begin to poke out of her rear-end. The zoo plans to have a contest to name the calf once it is born.
