    Does she look pregnant to you? I got here about a week ago and thought she looks a bit rounder than my other girl. She is 2lbs and 2.23oz

    Maybe. See https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...r-along-is-she.

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

    I just got her and her sister the other day. I checked both to make sure that they were definitely both females. They've both been in quarantine since I got them and have not been in contact with my male guinea pig since I got them

    Re: Does she look pregnant?

    Do you know if the people you got her from had her housed with a male?

    Also, do you know how old she is, and whether or not she's had a previous litter?

    No, unfortunately I don't have any of this information. But I know that she's a little over a year old.

    @bpatters how would you be able to tell if a guinea pig has had a previous litter?

    Her nipples might look a little different, but I'm not sure that's definitive.

    Well, her nipples definately look different than her sisters do. They look kindof like a cats or a dogs would after having babies.

    Update: during the past 5 days, Autumn has gained 2.3oz. Panda on the other hand, has remained the same weight. Theyve been getting the same amount of food and veggies since the day I got them, about a week and a half ago

    You've probably got to wait a little longer for the babies to start moving and ballooning, then you'll know for sure.

    Re: Does she look pregnant?

    Keep in mind that cavies are as different as we humans are. Autumn's weight gain may be due to things other than pregnancy. Perhaps it is because she doesn't have to compete with other piggies for food and can eat all she wants? I'm sure that your weight varies from week to week and the same for cavies. If they aren't from the same litter, she likely has different genetics and just may be a larger body type.

    Most cavies are at their full adult size by a year old. Others (especially Abyssinians) often physically mature around 15 m.o. And then, it may be possible that she's pregnant....only time will tell.
