    They were literally just born. Give them a day or two to get used to walking and stuff. They are adorably by the way!

    Baby 2: -9g
    Baby 3: -10g

    They normally lose weight the first two or three days. After that they should start consistently gaining. I wouldn't worry as long as they're all active and eating. They're beautiful, by the way.

    Re: Pregnant Guinea Pig Help

    @NDarling23 I'm very curious if there were any signs that your momma pig showed before labor?
    I've got a female I adopted who is pregnant and due literally any day but I'm going to pull out my hair from the wait!!
    I keep watching for signs and thinking that she's about to pop but then nothing -_- grr...
    Anyways, I'm really hoping that since you were pretty observant with your sow that you may have noticed a change in her behavior or how she was moving and what not?
    I know of what to look for when she's actually in labor, but no one seems to know of what to look for leading up to it... _

    To be honest she acted completely normal. I keep thinking I saw signs and it always turned out to be nothing. Then when I finally gave up on trying to predict it she had the babies! I don't know if the video is on this thread but she did do the hiccuping motion I think the day before she went into labor. That was the only thing that changed!! I'm sorry I know this isn't all that helpful. I hope your girl has a safe delivery and healthy babies!

    It's all good, it seems like no one knows of any prelabor signs.. guinea pigs must be darn good at hiding them :P
