I hate it when they don't pay attention to the date I have on the calendar!!! As for when she's going to deliver, all you can do is keep an eye on her. I've had them deliver almost exactly 21 days later than the day I know I saw the breeding! If she starts showing signs of labor but appears to be having problems call your vet immediately.
I have never had a problem with mastitis. The only time I've ever had to treat for it is when a doe has taken a hard bump to a full udder. When I know that's happened I use the CMT every day for four or five days so if she begins to get infected I'll catch it early. I've had two cases in four years. This year I had a doe fill up on one side only and when she was about to deliver the kids the other side went "Whoomph!" and then she was even. I kept a close watch on her and she never had an infection. Hopefully this is all that's going on with your doe.
