    Weight Gain = Pregnant?

    I've had my six girls (were housed with boars before I got them) for 45 days. I've been monitoring their weights to see who is or may be pregnant. Only two have gained any weight, but neither seem to have the big belly I see in google pictures.

    Bellatrix has gained about 30g since I got her but only gained 1g (if anything) last week.

    Fleur was thin when she came to me, she's gaining 10-15g per week. She's long haired, so it's hard to see her belly under all that hair. I haven't felt anything moving in her belly yet, but she's more skittish so I try not to handle more than I have to.

    Any guesses on whether either is pregnant? I'm really hoping not, especially as I have no idea how old any of them are beyond being full sized. I have many new pig mom worries. The other four girls have mostly maintained their weight with a small gain since arriving.
