I got my first set of Guinea pigs about 8 weeks ago and as the story goes surprise my female is pregnant. I was just wondering if anyone could give me a guess on when I should expect the new piggies. I can feel them moving around and pushing their little feet against my finger and today I could actually hear what sounded like them clashing their teeth, it was the weirdest thing. If anyone could give me any idea I would appreciate it.

If you hear teeth grinding it could be in the next week or two. It all depends on when you started hearing the pups grind their teeth.

Do you have a male and female or did the female come pregnant? I can't remember. If you have one of each please separate if you haven't already so the sow won't be backbred.

Can you post a picture? There's a better chance of us guessing.

Yes I seperated the two but of course it was too late. I will try and post a picture later. I just heard the teeth thing today.

Don't feel bad, I had two accidental pregnancies. You should have pups in another week or two.

Yeah, I might have some pregnant piggies on my hands too- don't feel bad about it, we all make mistakes (Well in Ly's case, not her mistake).

No, not my mistake but ultimately my responsibility. I believe my son did learn a huge lesson in what he and his friend did.
