If she is a month away she may not look pregnant. What you may be seeing from one day to the next is the rumen in the first gut. Some days they look bigger than others even when they are not pregnant.
Watch for the udder starting to fill and also the cartilage at the tailbone starting to soften and rise slightly. When the cartilage starts to soften they are getting close. This softens up to make room for the kid to pass. The udder may not fill until the day of delivery or just a few before.
