ID:	79471 This is my Paisley. She was born on Feb 16 so she is 3 months old today. I adopted her and another girl on Easter weekend so I've had them about 6 weeks. Paisley is one day older. She weighs 1 lb 10 ounces and the other girl weighs 1lb 4 ounces. Since April 9 Paisley has gained 8 ounces and the other girl has only gained 5. Paisley had brothers, do you think she might be pregnant? She's still very active, popcorning and running around all the time.

    Maybe. How long has it been since she was with a male?

    See https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...r-along-is-she for more information.

    Not sure. She was about 6 weeks old when I got her. I would have hoped the rescue separated her from her brother before she got pregnant but I don't know. I will have to see if I can reach her. Thanks for the link. Good info!

    Does the fact that she's bigger and gaining weight faster than my other sow mean anything? Paisley is one day younger. They have the same dad, different moms.

    Possibly. But if she is pregnant, she's far enough along that you should be seeing some of the other signs.

    Not necessarily some pigs are just naturally bigger than others, just like people. Some are thin, some chunky and some have a natural pear shape. See when she was last with a male and then, other than getting an ultrasound, there is really no way to know yet. It's a wait and see game right now. Let us know what the rescue says!

    She said she separated them at 14 days old, so if that's true, she's not pregnant! Phew!! I was so worried. Her mother is 3.67 pounds, so she's probably just a big girl! Thanks for your help!
